tokidoki's Mermicorno series makes a splash at River Safari this September

20 Aug 2018

tokidoki’s Mermicorno characters will be making a splash at River Safari this September!  

River Safari has joined forces with tokidoki, the internationally recognised and iconic lifestyle brand that has amassed a cult-like following for its larger-than-life characters and will debut 10 life-sized Mermicorno sculptures, including Submarino, Jade and Fortuna, three of the newest members of the Mermicorno family. Embark on the Mermicorno Trail, and win exclusive and limited edition tokidoki x River Safari enamel pins. Grab tokidoki collectibles, such as plushies, key chains, and blindboxes from the River Safari retail store to complete your Mermicorno experience!

Dive into the mythical world of mermaids and unicorns this September and meet life-sized Mermicorno sculptures at River Safari!




Interspersed with the world of Mermicorno are River Safari’s own mermaids – the manatees! Be mesmerised by the beauty and grace of the mermaids of myth, and join the daily River Trail Encounters.

Get privileged behind-the-scenes access with River Safari’s new tours too! Go up close and personal with the manatees in the Manatee Mania tour, feed them their favourite vegetables, participate in their target training and see if you can spot River Safari’s animal icon, Canola the manatee. Alternatively, opt for the Amazing Amazonia tour to feed and learn more about piranhas, electric eels and stingrays, and discard your fears about these often misunderstood unique creatures.

If you are looking for a break, head over to the Mama Panda Kitchen and indulge in some mouth-watering chicken wings specially marinated in a fruity sauce! Stand to win a Manatee Mania behind-the-scenes for two. Upload your most creative #RiverSafari and #tokidoki photos from 1 – 30 September. Terms and conditions apply.
