About the event

It's Christmas ! 

Welcome to our first ever Santa Safari event at the incredible Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Supported by Curlys for our animal friends at the Wildlife Foundation :) 

The event is a 3k walk, jog, wheel (chair or buggy) or run around a special festive route in the grounds of the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. 

Taking you on a festive safari visiting the Sea Lions, Gelada Monkeys, Hyenas, Leopards, Giraffe, Rhino, Zebra, Wallabies, Polar Bears, Tigers and Dinosaurs!!!! 

When you arrive you collect your Christmas card, this is to be pinned on your top (this has your animal wave on it and a special message from the animal on the back :) ) We have waves every 10 minutes from 09:00-09:50 taking place (with a 100 person limit per wave)

We then call you forward through the entrance gates, saying hello to the Bush Dogs and the Tapir (who might be eating their Christmas pudding!). Then down to the start next to our Sea Lions (they're practicing their carols for you!) 

Then it's off into the park! 

Along the way you'll stop off to visit different Animal friends to pick up your Santa hat, your animal mask and a festive treat... then once you've seen the Dinosaurs, you'll join us back out the park in the finish in the hive to receive the most incredible Christmas medal! 

Your ticket supports the WildLife foundation, and you can choose it to include entry into the park or not. You can also purchase an entry pass for friends and family members at a discounted rate when you sign up to the event so they can join you after the event for a day in the park.

We of course encourage you to come dressed up for Christmas or dressed as your favourite animal (we will be!) 

Thank you for joining us and supporting some amazing animals this Christmas :) 

*The event is just for fun and not timed.
