We sure have missed the YWP over lockdown, but we were happy that they kept us up-to-date with their activities – including the introduction of new family members to the Polar Bears. And now they’re back, we can’t wait to visit.
Introducing a Sunset Stroll session for the summer, guests can enjoy the park in a whole new way now it’s open – and it’s the perfect way to spend a warm evening.
A romantic stroll around the park, watching the animals stir in the evening sounds like an ideal thing to do after months in lockdown. Some animals such as the polar bears and anteaters become more active at night, so you might just catch a glimpse of some wonderfully fun creatures at play.
The park reopened last week on the 12th of April, and intends to make the most of the time missed this summer with exciting new features like this.
Launching this July, guests will be able to enjoy the brand new sunset safari in both July and August – when restrictions are fully lifted.
The Yorkshire Wildlife Park website reads: “Visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park later in the day and see the park in a whole new light.”
“Why not enjoy the UK’s number one walkthrough safari with friends and family this summer? The majestic lions will have awoken from their daily slumber, so you can watch them come alive at night in a whole different light.
They park has some great food and drink offerings in store, from traditional baked pizzas in the Masai Coffee House to burritos in the Caramba Cabin. You can also enjoy beers, gin & tonics or a glass of bubbles as you watch the sunset – how great is that?
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, the Sunset Safari will be available every weekend on Friday and Saturday nights from the 30th of July to the 28th of August 28, as well as bank holiday Sunday on August 29.
The park is available to visit all day, but if you buy tickets in the last slots of 4:30 or 5:30, you will receive £5 off the normal admission price. The park will stay open until 9pm for the Sunset Safari, and the prices are £17 for adults and £15 for children.
