Open since June 20, the Omega Park in the
Outaouais region is happy to be able to once again invite visitors
on its car safari. The reopening of this activity, its main
attraction, was long awaited, and the park has put a number of
measures in place to comply with the recommendations of the public
health department. After being confined indoors for so long,
families are sure to be thrilled to go out in nature and enjoy this
activity that allows them to learn more about Canada’s wildlife in
an environment that is as safe for them as it is for the animals!
The safari trail makes its way through a
vast area of over 2,000 acres, at the heart of which visitors can
observe wild animals and feed carrots to some of them. From inside
their car, they can listen to the FM 90,1 radio station to learn
facts about the animals they come upon. This one-of-a-kind
attraction gives them special, up-close access to the animals in
their natural habitats.
The very nature of the car safari means
that this is an activity where respecting physical distancing is
easy. The outdoor and indoor facilities have been redesigned, the
trails have been widened so that visitors are less likely to cross
paths with one another. And hand disinfectant is available all
around the park. Before they visit, people will be required to make
a reservation and purchase their tickets online. The picnic areas,
pedestrian trails and farm are also accessible, and visitors will be
able to find take-out food at nearby open restaurants.
Gradually reopened since June 1, the
accommodations at Omega Park are now fully open! The park offers
various options for visitors who want to sleep near the pack of grey
wolves, thanks to houses that feature windowed facades. You could
also choose the house on stilts, the log cabins, the Wi-tents,
prospector cabins or tipis.
