The closest you can get to an African safari – complete with lions, giraffes and hippos – without jumping on a plane.

Werribee Open Range Zoo is bringing back its Sunset Safari experience, complete with a performance that will immerse you in the African wildlife of the zoo.

Hop inside a giraffe-print safari bus that’ll take you through “the savannah” as the sun goes down. Werribee Zoo is the home of many Australian and African animals – including herds of giraffes and zebras, white rhinos, lions, ostriches, hippos and more – which you’ll encounter up close.

Guests will then explore walking trails, learning about the zoo’s efforts to fight wildlife extinction and talking to staff about their experiences along the way. The tours include interactive drums, song and dance performances from Africa, and there are different food and drink packages available separately.

The proceeds from the Sunset Safari tours go to Zoos Victoria’s international partners, including the Uganda Wildlife Conservation Centre.

The tours run from 5.30pm to 9pm on Saturday and Sunday nights. Sessions must be pre-booked online.
