Woburn Safari Park has some slithery and scaly new residents moving in on Valentine’s Day with the opening of the ‘Dissscovery Zone’ – a new walk-in exhibit in the heart of the Foot Safari.

The Dissscovery Zone is the new home to a variety of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates, ranging from the critically endangered Golden Mantella frog to snakes like Bioko the Royal Python!

Visitors will love how close they can encounter the creepiest and crawliest kinds of animals at the park!

Plus throughout half term week, there will be chances to meet keepers and learn loads in the talks and demonstrations.

If you venture on safari this half term, you can also meet the heart-breakingly cute new arrivals – Oreo and Olaf are Scimitar horned oryx calves. They can be seen skipping happily through their paddock each morning as they’re full of the joys of spring (a little early!).

The biggest heart in the park most likely belongs to Damini the Asian elephant, who is full to bursting with a mother’s love for her calf Tarli.

The heart-warmingly adorable calf Tarli is now four months old and is a playful and mischievous new member of the herd.

The safari park is open 9.30am until 4pm, with last entry to the park at 3pm.

> This February half term, the cute lambs are back at Mead Open Farm, Billington.

Meet all the newborns in the Lamb Nursery and help the farmers bottle feed the older lambs. Plus watch all the lambing action back at home on the farm’s 24/7 LambCam.
