Opening May 21, 2021
HEMMINGFORD, QC, May 11, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - This summer, Parc Safari is the ultimate vacation destination! Starting Friday, May 21, Quebecers are invited to venture deep into the animal kingdom to discover herds of animals from all five continents. Cheetahs, lions, tigers, rheas, owls, and giraffes are all excitedly awaiting visitors.
New for our 49th season
The Tropical Oasis offers a tubing adventure on the majestic Nile, carrying adventurers downriver from Nubia to the ruins of Kush, across Uganda and its mountain gorillas, through Sudan and the massive Khartoum hydroelectric project as well as Egypt and its Valley of the Kings. This new adventure on a lazy river takes visitors to the pyramid of Kheops while passing a 50%-scale replica of the famed 70-metre-long cruise ship "Sudan". A remarkable journey filled with magical scenery awaits visitors on this imaginary, educational and entertaining river adventure. Opening June 24th.
It is said that without minerals, there would be no animals: the Discovery Pavilion presents ... a dinosaur leg, insects, animals and minerals. The premise of this Pavilion is to spark interest among youngsters by providing an outlook on future research aimed at preserving the quality of life on our planet, fanning the flames of curiosity in young minds about the mysteries of evolution, from the Big Bang to today, from dust to mineral formation, galaxies, dinosaurs all the way to the "sentient beings" that we have become. If an encounter with the Pavilion's exhibits can convey this passion, then this alone is justification for a day at Parc Safari! The NEW Discovery Pavilion is a collaborative effort between the Redpath Museum, the Montréal Mineralogical Club, the Town of Sherrington and the private collection of paleontologist François Cornu.
This summer is expected to be a hot one: kids, toddlers and parents alike can cool off at the Aquaparc Safari, with our new water slides, in the Tropical Oasis, Dolphin Lagoon and Dino Wading Pool. Get wet and have fun!
The 5 km paved trail that winds through the Safari Adventure remains Parc Safari's most exclusive attraction. Travelling to far away Kenya for a similar safari could cost as much as $15,000... Enjoy unparalleled privileged contact with the animals and experience wilderness up close at Parc Safari.
Our tree-shaded footpaths take you to the Bird Garden, the Felines' Glass Tunnel, the Farm of the Five Continents, the Afrika Terrace that overlooks the African savanna, and the Olduvaï Walkway where macaques, hyenas, white and tawny lions can be observed. Another walkway runs along the African savanna where elk, zebras, rhinos and giraffes await photographers. The majestic flight of birds of prey, the lush forest and the numerous paths and picnic areas are all welcome additions to a unique and memorable experience.
Sleeping with the lions: only at Parc Safari!
To extend the experience, plan on a one night, two day experience. Coolbox are fully equipped mini houses ideal for an overnight stay in the wilderness, close enough to hear the lions roar. This lodging concept allows families to discover nature under the cover of darkness, of course accompanied by a guide. Other activities for guests to experience and gain a new perspective on Parc Safari's animals are included. All Coolbox are equipped with a kitchenette, dishes, shower and bathroom. All you need to bring is your own food, bedding and personal items.
The stay includes a nighttime bird of prey experience, a twilight walk and breakfast with the lions.
