Feed your senses and the animals too

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 did kangaroos yesterday, so how about wallabies today?

Safari zoo has two species -- the parma wallaby, which is near threatened, and the swamp wallaby.

Swamp wallabies are larger, about 1.4m long in total, while parma wallabies are about 1m long. They have different colours too. The swamp wallaby is dark on top and light undernearth, with a light flash across their cheek. The parma wallaby is more grey-brown, with a paler belly as well. The parma also has small, more cat like ears.

These pictures will tell you which is which!

How do you tell apart our kangaroo species? It's quite easy when you know how!

Western grey kangaroo -- all of them are grey. They have narrow faces and are smaller than reds.

Red kangaroo -- Males are red, while females are grey. They are the largest type of kangaroo and have a flash of white either side of their mouths.

Compare the two in these photos!

Don't forget your bag of animal food on your next visit so you can feed the kangaroos, wallabies, birds, deer and marmots of the Worldwide safari.
