In January we will be overhauling our café, kitchen and shop to make our offer even better for visitors in 2022.

This is in addition to the ongoing construction works on our primate facility which will be at their busiest during January so we have made the difficult decision to close for a short period at the beginning of next year while the front of house work is completed. This is to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.

We will be working like billy-o to ensure the closure is as short as possible but we expect the sanctuary will be closed from the 4th – 31st January. We know this will be a disappointment to many but with no café, shop or public toilets plus large vehicles driving on site, we have to put your safety and comfort first. We promise you it will be well worth the wait when we reopen – we emailed our members last night so please check your inboxes or junk mail for more details about our offer to you.

The good news is that the completion of the works coincides with the end of Tafkap and Xirus’ quarantine period so you can return to see them out and about exploring their habitat.

The team will be busy little bees on our social media and website while we are closed with regular videos and photographs plus updates from the animal care team keeping you updated on life at the sanctuary.

We can still safely go ahead with animal experiences but if you have one booked in and would rather reschedule then don’t worry – get in touch with the team to manage your booking.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Best wishes

The Wildheart Team
