Award winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park is offering a fun packed and heart-warming end to the year.
The ground breaking walk through park is staging a series of exciting events to entertain visitors, who as ever will be able to enjoy getting unrivalled views of some of the most beautiful and endangered animals on earth, including the newly arrived giraffes.
During the Half Term holidays guests can come and play on the spook-tacular Trick and Trick trail on October the 27th while they can brush up on their animal knowledge with a Halloween-themed day on November 4th, where visitors will be astounded with mysterious facts about the animals. Find out which one of YWP’s animal’s names means ‘Ghost’?
Then there will be festive carols on December 1 with Doncaster's concert band marking the arrival of Meerkat Santa to his Grotto along with a spectacular bangless firework display.
Director Cheryl Williams said: ‘We are putting on more entertainment and special events than ever before this year - helping our visitors celebrate Halloween and Christmas It has been another record year for YWP and want to thank all our visitors for their support.’
Bosses are expecting record crowds for the rest of 2012 thanks to their latest arrivals - the Giraffes, now living in a new state-of-the-art £350,000 enclosure.
The park, in Branton outside Doncaster, has just welcomed two-year-olds Palle and endangered Rothschild Giraffe Jambo, Jasper, 7 and twelve-year-old Behansin.
Before moving into their innovative new home at YWP, the giraffes separately traveled from, Copenhagen, Woburn Safari Park and West Midlands Safari Park, via sea and road clocking up approximately a staggering 1,494 miles. The four new arrivals are settling in well to their new home.
All year round Yorkshire Wildlife Park gives visitors unrivalled access to a priceless collection of animals, including the majestic lions rescued from Romania, rare Amur Tigers and Leopards and African hunting dogs
Every day guests will be astounded by the innovative Leopard Heights, the world’s largest and most spectacular leopard enclosure. Home to Amur Leopards, the most endangered big cat on the planet, it is spectacularly designed with an 8 meter tall viewing tower and 10-metre long glass viewing window.
Visitors will almost feel a heartbeat from nature as they cross a 150metre walkway to observe the stunning Amur (Siberian) Tigers among waterfalls and pools. Sayan and Vladimir are among less than 400 Amur Tigers left in the world and are part of a crucial European wide breeding programme.
YWP is home to lots of other animals, including the lions, Lemur, Zebra, Antelope, Meerkats, Wallabies, Squirrel Monkeys, Marmosets, Camels and lots more.
There is also an indoor Jungle Playbarn and an outdoor Forest Adventure play area - depending on the weather!
YWP is Yorkshire’s acclaimed and fastest growing tourist attraction and offers a fun filled day for every member of the family - throughout the year.
