Monarto Safari Park

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Monarto Safari Park is the largest in Australia and indeed one of the largest in the world. It is a 1,500 hectare open-range sanctuary undertaking a major role nationally and internationally in breeding programs for rare and endangered species. It is the home of South Australia’ first ever southern white rhinoceros and Australia’s largest giraffe herd.

The Zu-loop shuttle bus departs the Visitor Centre at regular intervals enabling you to get on and off the bus at a variety of wildlife viewing platforms including, Giraffe, Rhino, Cheetah, Lion, African Painted Dogs and Chimpanzee.

Approximately 10 kilometres of walking tracks meander through the Mallee bush-land of the zoo and can be incorporated with the Zu-loop service for those visitors wishing to be flexible in exploring the zoo.

Just 50 minutes drive from Adelaide and only 15 minutes from the Murray River, Monarto Safari Park also offers behind-the-scenes experiences such as Keeper for the Day, Lions 360, Meet their Cheetah and meet their Chimps or Australian natives, providing different levels of interaction with the animals.

The Visitor Centre includes a large Cafe dining area, gift shop, Interpretive centre and Information desk to assist in planning your day at this spectacular safari park.
