‘There are two safari types at Werribee – a half hour one that is included with your ticket and a second $50 of-road safari, which goes for over an hour. I cannot recommend the off-road safari highly enough! This is a must do at the park. It gets you so up close and personal with the amazing animals, and it’s good for all ages. The transport for the off-road safari only seats a small number and everyone has a front row! So good. A great day at a wonderful zoo.’

What You Can Expect

If you’ve always wanted to go on an African safari, Werribee Open Range Zoo offers an authentic game drive experience just outside Melbourne! Here you’ll encounter a huge range of exotic and Australian native animals, that all call this sprawling 225-hectare zoo home.

A visit to Werribee Open Range Zoo is just like travelling through the magnificent African Serengeti. Your ticket includes a superb 40-minute game drive through acres of open grassland, and your knowledgeable driver/guide will share information about the animals you’ll see roaming and grazing freely. Zebras, buffalo, ostriches, camels and antelope are just some of the inhabitants of Werribee Open Range Zoo’s grasslands.

After the safari you can set your own pace and make your way through the many exhibits and enclosures in and around the zoo’s main precinct. Along with the gorilla, lion and meerkat exhibits, you can visit a replica African village. For those interested in getting up close and personal with native Australian animals, the immersive Australian Journey grasslands area on the banks of the Werribee River is a must-see.

You’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy informative zookeeper presentations throughout the day. There are scheduled daily presentations at the meerkat, hippo, gorilla and lion enclosures.

When it’s time for lunch, choose from the bistro, café or mobile food carts. There’s something to suit every taste.

Werribee Open Range Zoo offers an extraordinary experience for the whole family. Enjoy close encounters with many of the planet’s most breathtaking wildlife species.
