Brand new tour in the open range section!

This interactive tour is designed for guests of most ages! Sure to thrill both the young and young at heart as you step into an African adventure like no other!

Join a guide as you discover the stunning animals of Africa and beyond. We aim to have you feed a giraffe, to pat a rhino
and to experience being overwhelmed by the height and strength
of these species! Attempt to count the number of stripes on our zebras, admire
the lemurs that call the zoo home and see why the cheetah is the fastest animal on earth. Sneak out of
Africa as we finish the tour and see our beautiful Siamang ape family. 

The African Savannah Tour encompasses the best of the open range zoo in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. Participants go behind the scenes to meet and feed some of the zoo’s favourite animals. See you at the zoo!

The National Zoo and Aquarium takes its COVID-19 response extremely seriously and prioritises the welfare of its animals, staff and guests at all times.

As such, anyone who has been in a designated COVID-19 Hotspot within 14 days of their intended arrival date will be required have their visit deferred.

As these locations are changing frequently we are asking all of our guests to keep updated with the current hotspots prior to departing for their visit.

A list of current hotspots;

VIC: Any person with a Victorian address or who has visited Victoria in the 14 days prior to their arrival, until further notice.

NSW: Any person who has been in a location advised by NSW Health as needing to self-isolate as listed on; https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates#latest-covid-19-case-locations-in-nsw

QLD: Any person who has been in a location advised by QLD Health as needing to self-isolate as listed on; https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/contact-tracing

Please note that while anyone who visited Victoria in the 14 days prior to their intended visit will need to defer, the NSW and Qld hotspots only refer to people visiting certain places (such as designated restaurants) on specified dates.  

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
