What's new for October Half Term
Amongst the cute new creatures in the Foot Safari are new female red panda arrivals, Mali and Mambo. Spot them climbing the trees and racing through an overhead walkway which connects their swanky new red panda pad in Himalayan Heights, to an outdoor play area and climbing frames.
Get your fill of tricks and treats at The Safari Lodge, on the 28th and 29th October when you can join in the Halloween fun and games on the veranda, for only £3.50 per person.
Young new-born boy Gus is a new addition to the Foot Safari’s Sea Lion Cove. Not only is Gus the first Californian sea lion pup born at the park in 12 years, he is also well-known by the keepers for being very vocal in his demands for food!
Families can also meet PAW Patrol’s heroic police pup Chase on Saturday, 28th October by heading down to the decking of the Mammoth Play Ark in the Foot Safari, where he will be making special appearances at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.
Visitors can queue to see Chase at no extra cost to standard admission, or if they purchase a Special Event ticket they can enjoy all of the usual fun at Woburn Safari Park, plus an allocated time slot to meet Chase himself.
Families can spot new arrivals on the Road Safari too, as Woburn has welcomed the births of four endangered Rothschild’s giraffe calves. The first calf has been named Arrow (after the Rothschild’s Coat of Arms), and the other calves named Ruedi, Robin and Ronnie were born just days apart.
The busy keepers have also three endangered Barbary macaques, including one as-yet unnamed females and two males named Robert and Rafaki (from the Lion King).
