The 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.

Capybara Caves

Capybara Caves is home to an adorable female capybara. The South American rodent can be seen running around the enclosure, in and out of her house and burrows, as well as taking a dip in her specially designed pool. 

In the warmer months, she will often be seen spending more time in and around her pool.


Elephant Meadow is a large paddock enclosure (located alongside the concrete car park, just as the entry to the repeat circuit route for the Road Safari), where visitors can view the elephants grazing in their specially designed paddock. 

The elephants can enjoy wallowing, grazing and browsing from the trees in this enclosure and gives them a variety of spaces to explore, during their day.  

Although there is no talk or demonstration at the moment, due to Government restrictions. The herd will generally move down to Elephant Meadow from their Road Safari paddock at around 1pm, until 3pm when they'll be taken out for their daily walk by keepers.
