Standard Gate Entry Prices

Click to see the schedule of daily ranger-led activities

Our first daily ranger-led activity is at 10am, and the last activity starts at 4pm. Please note that, although these activities run almost every day, they are not guaranteed. We are a real working wildlife sanctuary and, as such, conditions can be unpredictable. We always put our animals' wellbeing first, second only to public safety. Very occasionally we have to change (or even cancel) some of our ranger-led activities with little or no notice when our rangers must attend to unexpected emergencies and so cannot mantain the regular program. This, however, is extremely rare. For example, last year, of our almost 5,000 ranger-led activities, fewer than 50 talks - i.e. less than 1% - were affected.

Prices for Private Ranger Activities

You can book a Personal Ranger during the day so that you can have more up-close-and-personal time with the animals, or a ranger to guide you while exploring the park, and you can visit at your own pace instead of following the usual daily activities and animal encounters program.
