Thank you to our 2019 gardeners and visitors we are looking forward to seeing you during our 2020 garden festival!

Let's Go on Safari

Kids Animal Hunt

Nestled in the mystical woodlands of Te Popo are 17 bronze statues waiting to be discovered. Bring the kids on an African Safari animal hunt. The hand-made sculptures in life-size proportions will be poised and hidden amongst the trees. The striking African beasts are waiting for you to find each one as you venture around the paths and tracks of Te Popo.

On your hunting expedition, search out the huge crocodile sipping from the creek, the statuesque giraffe or the king of the jungle – the proud lion. On the completion of your hunt, all children’s efforts will be rewarded with a well-deserved ice cream for their sharp hunting skills.

  • The animal hunt will take you about 45 minutes - if you want to catch them all!
  • Kids under 12yrs are free entry and will receive and ice-cream after the Safari.
  • Prams are welcomed but take care on the paths and walkways.
