Sunset on the Savannah

This wonderful summer’s evening event has been adapted from our popular Sky Hunters at Sunset to allow you to enjoy a safe evening watching our birds fly with plenty of social distancing measures in place. With an African twist, you’ll spend your evening watching falcons, vultures, owls and kites as the sun sets gently behind them in our Savannah arena. Summer evenings offer excellent flying conditions for our birds, and we invite you to enjoy them outside in the fresh air, seeing them at their best as we recreate an African scene before your very eyes.

The evening will start with a delicious boxed picnic to enjoy in our picnic field (usually £10.95) including a selection of sandwiches, pork pie, chocolate brownie, scone with cream and jam, and a hot drink of your choice. We can cater for dietary requirements too. After your picnic, you’ll head out to the arena for an extended display that will be a culmination of birds flying, theatre, music and special effects transporting you to Africa.

If you’d like to add a little fizz to the evening, why not select a 200ml bottle of prosecco with your picnic for £5.65? Please feel free to bring your own blanket, tables or chairs for the picnic as there aren’t any in our picnic field.

Adult £35.00
Child £21.00

The above ticket price includes a 10% voluntary donation to the Trust and £9.00 to the Trading Co. for the meal. The non-donation price is £32.64 (adult) and £19.91 (child).


Other useful information about your evening

We have planned these special evenings to include sunset so each event takes place at a slightly different time. Please check your booking reference for the time of your booked event. The start time of your event is when we will open our doors and a member of our team will meet you in the car park on arrival to direct you to the reception where you will collect your picnic box. We have allowed plenty of time for you to enjoy your picnic in the last of the day’s sunshine, before we invite you into our Savannah Arena for our wonderful flying display.

We would like to advise visitors that we have a natural countryside setting and sensible footwear and appropriate clothing for outdoors are recommended. Most walkways are laid paths; however you may find some natural unevenness within our grounds. This event will be held outside so please come dressed for the weather.
