Sunset Safari 2017 reviews

[We had] the freedom to walk about and go to as many or as few talks/events as wanted. There was not [a] timetable or route you had to stick to. It was great."

We greatly enjoyed our evening and are planning to return next year"

The fact that it was out of Zoo hours and the animals were enjoying the last bit of sunshine for the day, the lionesses were all taking in the last rays before sundown... Perfect time of day!"

[Our favourite part was] seeing the animals in the evening when they are being fed. The talks are very informative and the atmosphere is lovely.”

There was a lovely atmosphere with the entertainment at Base Camp and visiting on a summer evening was very relaxing”
