Opening times:

Open 365 days a year, 8am to 5pm. Christmas and New Year’s Day late opening at 11am.

Things to do:

Wildlife tours:

Take a guided tour around the wildlife sanctuary, catch sight of our residents and learn about our work in wildlife conservation. Guided tours leave every hour between 9am and 4pm. We can organise private tours for larger groups.

Wilderness trails:

Take your own walking safari on our wilderness trails home to monkeys, duiker, bushpigs, and even wild hyena. The area is also well known for its prolific birdlife and we are keen for birders to visit us and help us with identification. There are 6km of trails running alongside the banks of the river and through the woodland and you are also welcome to cycle or bring a picnic.

Playground, restaurant, bar and gift shop:

Let the children loose on the adventure playground whilst you kick back at the bar or café, famed for its excellent coffee and jerk chicken.  Our shop stocks goods brought in especially from the local communities.
