Under the current Government roadmap we are planning on reopening the week commencing the 12th of April for Zoo Tours and Meerkat Encounters. All other activities will resume from the 17th of May.

From the 12th - 18th of April we will have roadworks going on along the main drive. Please enter using the Honey Lane entrance if you have booked a date during that period. For directions click here.
