Touchwood is bringing a taste of the Savannah to Solihull this autumn, with a safari-style animal trail around the centre.

From Tuesday 20th September to Thursday 20th October, Touchwood’s famous resident topiary cows, Daisy and Dotty, will be joined on a safari with their friends from the zoo including a hippo, lion, giraffe, gorilla, baby elephant and zebra. 

With each resident animal nestled in and around the centre, families can take part in their very own safari as they follow the trail in search for the six new visitors. Simply head into the centre with the little ones and pick up a trail sheet from the ranger at the Touchwood Information Desk to set off on safari and find out who’s escaped from the zoo!

On top of the new temporary additions to the centre, families can also keep an eye out for hidden surprises along the way as they seek out the clues to solve a zoo-tastic anagram; with a prize for those who complete the trail, available to claim from the ranger at the end.

With plenty of activities on around the centre throughout the autumn, including a sustainable fashion show, talks from natural beauty experts and free wellbeing sessions for the ‘Be in love with you campaign’, and lots of Halloween fun, you don’t want to miss out!

Lucy Burnett, Marketing Manager at Touchwood said: “We’re so excited to be bringing our safari to Solihull this October with a zoo themed animal trail around the centre. Following the success of our Easter trail with our now permanent residents Daisy and Dotty, we wanted to create something even bigger and better this autumn and provide families with an opportunity for adventure.

“The safari trail will be a zoo-tastic, interactive experience for families to enjoy around the centre and we can’t wait to see all your photos with our leafy friends!”

Touchwood houses some of the best UK and international brands, designer retailers and independent boutique-style stores.
