Woburn Safari Park in Bedfordshire are offering elephant fans an unmissable opportunity when they visit on selected dates during August.
Keepers at the park are holding a special charity event from 21st-28th August, to help raise money for the animal conservation charity, Tusk. During the week visitors will get the chance to have their picture taken with one of the park’s female Asian elephants.
On Tuesday 22nd, Thursday 24th and Sunday 27th August, the elephant keepers will be inviting visitors to form an orderly queue, and join them for a photo session down in Elephant Meadow.
Taking photos on your own device, the session will be open to the public on a first come, first served basis for half an hour each day, just after the elephant keeper’s talk at 1.30pm
Groups of up to eight people can have their picture taken with one of the adult elephants, with a keeper present in the picture for health and safety purposes.
Visitors will be asked to donate £10 to Tusk, one of the world’s leading African conservation charities, for their elephant photo opportunity. All monies raised will go towards the future conservation of animal species in the wild.
