Sunset Safaris


As the sun goes down the activity has a tendency to go up! See our animals in a different light on a sunset safari and feel like a VIP.

Beautiful surroundings, exotic species, open spaces – what better way to enjoy time out with your work colleagues, family or friends than on an exclusive and private tour of Marwell Zoo after hours.

Our professional guides will meet you at the front of the zoo at 6.30pm and then take you on a walking tour of the park to see some of the world’s rarest and most exotic animals – many of whom behave very differently when the sun goes down.
