April Holiday Programme




Join us before we open to the public and watch Orana Wildlife Park wake up for the day! 

Activities include farmyard animal feed, making enrichment for a native or exotic species, watch the keepers give this enrichment to the animals, a private safari shuttle ride, and a private giraffe encounter.  Our experienced education team will also take you to visit some of our amazing animals, and give you an insight into what it takes to run a modern zoo. 

Please Note: We have a hands-off approach when working with the species in our care, therefore, physical contact with animals does not form part of this experience.
