Monarto Safari Park

Adelaide’s Monarto Zoo has announced that they are expanding and becoming a safari park. The Monarto Safari Park will be the largest safari outside of Africa.

Complete with a first-of-its-kind luxury resort and glamping facilities, Monarto Safari Park will offer longer visits and a range of new and wild safari experiences in an area known as Wild Africa including open-sided vehicle tours through herds of roaming animals and a huge walk-through lemur habitat.

The $40 million expansion is made possible thanks to investment from Australian businessman Gerry Ryan OAM, who will build and operate the resort and glamping facilities, giving visitors the extraordinary opportunity to experience a luxury sleepover at Monarto Safari Park for the first time by 2022.

Like every visitor who comes through their gates, Monarto’s hope is that their accommodation guests will leave changed, having found a stronger connection to nature and its habitats, knowing that their stay has made a meaningful difference to their efforts as a conservation charity. Plus, the addition of accommodation and new safari experiences will also help them to generate more funds to support critical conservation work and continually improve animal facilities at both of their sites.

While they will be operating as Monarto Safari Park from today onwards, they’re working towards a full name transition by late 2021, when they celebrate the grand opening of the new visitor centre.

Expect to see some changes around the park, which you can keep up to date with on their website HERE and Facebook page HERE, but in the meantime it’s business as usual (which at the moment means babies galore from cheeky chimps to lanky giraffe and more on the way).
