African Safari

African Safari

Taking an African safari could make a visit to Dvůr Králové Zoo that extra bit special. Why not top off the day in style? This is a truly authentic experience, the closest thing to driving through an African wilderness without actually going to Africa. Sights include herds of zebras and antelopes roaming freely, and the mighty common eland male that may weigh up one ton! That's not all.

There are watusi, a breed of cattle, and the addax, a desert antelope used in rituals by Egyptian pharaohs. The swamp areas feature groups of Kafue lechwe as well as in their homeland. You cannot miss the herd of wildebeest and their young, which are usually born as they are in the wild - without any assistance by staff.

The African atmosphere is completed by the Netřeba brook and the kingfisher, the pearl of the Czech bird kingdom, nesting on its banks. Safaris are narrated by professional trained drivers.

For those seeking an even more memorable experience, might we recommend going on safari at sundown? Soak up the magic of an African summer evening at sunset. Believe us - a buffalo looks much more impressive when exposed in headlamps rather than daylight. Nowhere else in Europe will you encounter such a unique African adventure.

Off-road safari

Imagine just you and a guide alone amongst herds of animals, enjoying a trip in an off-road safari vehicle and a genuine African meal on your return. Experience an early evening in the midst of creatures on the Serengeti grassland. Get within arm's reach of a zebra. There is the additional bonus of getting a DVD on the zoo as a special gift.
