Prepare for an up-close encounter with the wildlife of the African savannah on this guided, off-road safari through the vast habitat of the Werribee Open Range Zoo. Knobby-kneed giraffes, long-necked ostriches and muddy hippos greet you as you ride through their territory in an open-air vehicle.

Grab a seat on a comfortable safari vehicle and set out into the brush of Werribee Open Range Zoo. Though you're just 30 minutes from Melbourne, it feels like a world apart as you enter into a grasslands habitat filled with animals from the African plains.

A safari guide provides expert narration along the way as you pass rhinoceroses nibbling the grass and roaming herds of black-and-white-striped zebras. Curious giraffes may stick their fuzzy noses into the bus for a closer look, and ostriches might just shake their wings and feathers in an elaborate dance. Hippos swim through a pool as you cross a bridge through the wetlands, and antelope and buffalos dot the landscape.

After your safari winds to a close, spend the rest of the day checking out the keeper talks, demonstrations and other wildlife throughout the park. Lions and meerkats stick close to a watering hole in the arid plains, a silverback lounges in one of the world's largest gorilla habitats and Australian animals from kangaroos to platypuses populate the riverbanks.
