Desert Springs

This brand new enclosure has been specially created to encourage the natural foraging, burrowing and breeding behaviour of Woburn Safari Park's newest residents.

The recently completed sandy sanctuary mimics the animals' natural desert environment, with rocky areas and artificial termite mounds.  Keepers will spread feeds around the area, encouraging the animals' natural curiosity to forage out food.  Each species has their own special house, where they can retreat into a burrow or den, suited to their natural preferences for sleeping.

Desert Springs is home to Yellow Mongoose, Meerkats and African Crested Porcupines.
