Welcome to all new SAFARI ZOO. We are the UK’s first SAFARI ZOO, a whole new concept in zoos not seen anywhere else. From the Swahili word meaning journey or expedition SAFARI ZOO is a unique journey into the animal kingdom. Come face to face with and discover Rhinos, Lions, Tigers, Bears, Hippos, Wolves, Snow leopards, Jaguar, Giant otters, Primates, Vultures, Penguins and much, much more at the UK’s most interactive animal park and Europe’s only Safari Zoo.  You’ll have a fantastic adventure immersed with some of the rarest wildest animals on the planet.

Join the keepers to hand feed giraffes every day, walk in amongst and hand feed penguins; wander amongst and discover kangaroo, lemurs, monkeys, free flying birds – including (for the brave) vultures and condors all living wild in the park. (Hand feeding wristbands are available to purchase T&C’s apply)

We asked earlier which animal was not a monkey. The answer was...

The lemur!

Lemurs are still a type of primate, but they evolved a bit differently from monkeys as they were isolated on the island of Madagascar. They have a wet nose, which very few other primates do!

You can hand-feed these amazing animals at our 12.45 lemur feedings for £3! For an extra £3 you can get our feeding wristband, which also allows you a one-way trip on our steam and road trains (subject to availability)!

We hope to see you soon. Find us at LA12 0LU, open from 10am.

Leopards don't just come from Africa! Ours, for example, are Sri Lankan.

Leopards used to have a continuous range from Africa through to the middle east, and then on through Asia, all the way to south-eastern Russia! There are at least 9 subspecies as well - what an amazing cat!

The answer to our tiger question was... b! Around 350 Sumatran tigers are left in the wild. If one was poached every day, there would be none left this time next year.

Fortunately, because people cause the problems for tigers, we can also stop them. Tigers' main threats are deforestation and hunting. You can help at home by recycling and avoiding palm oil, but you can also support the Sumatran Tiger Trust (PKHS) through Safari Zoo!

Come visit our daily tiger talk at 2.30 to find out more about these magnificent cats!

Another post for tiger day -- did you know that every single type of tiger is endangered?

About how many Sumatran tigers do you think are left in the wild?
a) around 300
b) around 350
c) around 550
d) around 900

We will post the answer in a couple of hours!

There were once 9 subspecies of tiger, but 3 have gone extinct in the last 50 years, with the last official extinction as recently as 2003. The Sumatran tiger is the subspecies found at Safari Zoo (and protected in our conservation programme) and is critically endangered.
