Most recently, a rare white tiger born at the park, has grown into a young adult and begun to make appearances.
Drive through the wildlife enclosures either in your own car, or ride one of the distinctive and fun Jungle Buses, coaches that have seemingly metamorphosed into giant motorised versions of some of the Park’s residents. In the Jungle Buses the tables are turned; humans are carefully caged in while the animals free to roam their wide domain.
