Please note that proof of vaccination is not required for admission to Safari Niagara at this time, per the Province of Ontario’s Vaccination Plan. Currently, proof of vaccination is only required for indoor non-essential businesses. To ensure the health and safety of the Safari Niagara community, our best physical distancing practices have been put in place. We are increasing cleaning of high-touch surfaces, sanitation and handwashing stations, posting social distancing signage and screening staff before they come to work.

For our activities and attractions, we have limited the number of guests allowed to participate at this time, implemented scheduled sanitation practices between guest use and have increased social distancing measures before, during and after the activities. In addition, we have implemented time-ticketed entry with a one-way directional flow in specific signed areas to limit guest capacity. We encourage all guests to adhere to the updated recommendations set in place by the Province of Ontario.

Keep Your Distance
All guests are encouraged to stay 6 feet apart from each other. This is indicated throughout the park with distancing signage at gathering areas. We have also implemented spaced seating at picnic tables.


Mask Protocol

Masks are mandatory in the retail shop, at all Keeper Talks, Budgies, Petting Zoo, on the Giraffe Deck and the Gator Express Tram. Please bring your own mask if you wish to participate in these activities. All guests including children of all ages are required to wear a mask on the Giraffe Deck.


Not only have we increased our washroom cleaning schedule, we have implemented a strict “Three (3) people at a Time” washroom policy. Masks are mandatory when inside the washroom.


Wellness Check
Please stay home if you or a member of your family is not feeling well. We are screening all of our employees before they come to work to help stop the spread. Keep an eye out for our Wellness Check signage at our park entrance.
