Welcome! To Pet Safari

After almost 34 years of trading our retail shop at Stephen H. Smiths Garden Centre in Otley, West Yorkshire was destroyed by fire on July 18th/19th 2017.

We are no longer trading from this address.

Moving forward we have decided, after much deliberation, soul searching, angst and copious amounts of tears that re-building a 4000 square foot Pet & Aquatic Centre from scratch is too daunting to contemplate and we shall not, therefore, be re-opening as a retail destination.


Pet Safari will, however, continue in a new incarnation utilising the knowledge and skills we have accumulated in those 34 years.


Firstly we are continuing with and expanding our branded and bespoke aquarium supply and installation service. We are also able to offer a limited number of ongoing maintenance packages in tandem with this service.


Secondly and allied to the above we are offering pond design and construction* & other pond related services. For both aquarium & pond we provide "Aquarium Doctor" & "Pond Doctor" advisory & consultation services.


Thirdly we are currently working on a total re-vamp of our online shop "petsafarionline.co.uk"

Please note that this site cannot currently be viewed but we hope to be going live with a great range of Pet Pond & Aquarium products by December (2018).


Thank You to all our customers, industry colleagues and Stephen Smith Staff who contacted us with messages of help & support following the fire, that support in no small part helped us all at Pet Safari survive the turmoil and emotion in the days and months following the fire.


If anyone needs advice or help with their pet pals or needs products please, in the first instance contact Mike on

07908 750143 or email pondpro@live.co.uk , as always we are happy to help.
