Why travel thousands of kilometres when a taste of African adventure is available just 30 minutes from Melbourne's city centre, at Werribee Open Range Zoo? Located within the Werribee Park Precinct, an amazing array of animals live on 225 hectares of wide, open Savannah. On the African River Walking Trail, come face-to-face with amazing gorillas, a pride of lions, see monkeys at play, watch cheetah prowl, and feel the sand between your toes and watch the hippos at Hippo Beach. No trip to the Zoo is complete without heading out on safari across grassy plains where you will find rhinoceros, giraffes, zebras, antelopes and more grazing together on the picturesque Savannah. All of the above, including the 40-minute safari tour, is included in the Zoo admission price. For those looking for even more adventure, book into an encounter. Feed a giraffe, stroke a serval, see amazing animals on the Savannah from an open vehicle plus many more to choose from. If you are looking for an evening experience the new Sunset Safari offers a three hour program which includes dinner, safari and entertainment or for visitors looking for unique accommodation, check out the overnight glamping experience, Slumber Safari....
