We thank you for your interest in bringing your students to the Safari Park. We are fortunate we are able to offer schools free or discounted admission to the Park, as long as they meet our requirements.

 

PRICING  

 

QUANTITIES AND RATIOS

  • The minimum size of a school/youth group is 15 people. Each school/group can bring a maximum of 200 people per day. Each individual over the 200-person limit is charged full price.
  • Groups from accredited home schools are welcome! You must meet the minimum group size of 15 to qualify for the discounted education rate.
  • Your group must have a minimum of 1 adult for every 10 students. Adult chaperones are required to stay with their students at all times.

 

SCHOOL AND YOUTH GROUPS ONLY

The maximum of free adults is 1 adult per 4 students, on applicable dates. If you have any special needs students, we allow one adult for every special needs student in the group. Adults within the maximum ratio are the same price as the students.

Adults above the maximum ratio, up to and not exceeding the total number of students, are $15 each. If the number of adults exceeds the number of students, each adult over and above the number of students will be charged the full admission price. Teachers are counted in the total number of adults.
