Wildlife Area
Choose your safari style at Woburn Safari Park. Hop in a car to see bison, zebras, and wild horses in Northern Plains, white rhinos and blue wildebeests in Savannah Grassland, and lions, tigers, and bears in Kingdom of the Carnivores. Navigate on foot to watch meerkats and mongooses in Desert Springs, elephants in Elephant Meadow, and sea lions in Sea Lion Cove. These are just a few of the many species you'll find in the park. Kids ages 5-12 can take in views of the venue from the Treetops Action Trail and then zipline back down to ground level. Check the schedule of keeper talks and demonstrations to see if any of the themes interest you. If you get hungry, head to the Safari Restaurant or 2x2 Restaurant. Put Woburn Safari Park into our Woburn vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We came here today on the spur of the moment after a fire at the place we were going to visit. I'm glad we did. The road safari was excellent, yes there were a lot of cars and it was slow but it gave ...  more »
  • Lovely young staff in the restaurant. Zoo was amazing however the restaurant manager came across as very rude. Kirsten I believe her name to be. Not very friendly, I hope others get treated better.  more »
  • We really enjoyed this park. The car safari was lovely. Although there are not as many animals as other parks, it felt like we saw the animals much more closely than at other parks. Favourite part was...  more »
  • One of the best day out options for a family. We travelled from Farnborough with another family who have a small girl. All of us were super enthused to drive around - seeing the magnificent carnivores, having fun with the monkeys who climb on your car, and watching the sea lions. There's more room for the kids to play - we couldn't because we were there only for half a day. We got the full experience tickets- personal suggestion would be to skip it and just buy food in the cafe for yourself. Plan for a full day out to enjoy it all. It is also a good rainy day activity - but depends on animals if they want to come out:)
  • Saw couple dogs. Was alright. Some monkey stole me sandwich and I got well pissed off yeah. So I gone out my car and chased it but one of his mates came up to me with one of those oi what you want mate faces so I had to proper peg it back to me motor. Top laugh fun for the family. Would have rather went pizza hut
  • We had a great day out here. A timetable of all the shows would have been useful, for some reason we couldn't find that, but otherwise it was great and we drove round a few times.
  • Unfortunately, it wasn't one of our best experiences. There is long drive on country lane to an entrance. At some point we thought that we are lost but in the end we found it. The way they locate animals is very strange as some of animals are before entrance and we didn't see them. We just realise it seeing it on a map. Luckily we came just on time and saw bear heading to it's cave. It was quite sunny day but windy. All animals were half asleep. Even monkeys looked depressed. Would like to see more animals. Safari looked half empty. But the worst thing was a smell! especially where are penguins. It smelled like urine, salt and fish. The water was so dirty. They should seriously clean penguin's and sea lion's water. My baby enjoyed bouncy castle which was free of charge. There were swan boats which we couldn't use, because our son is less then 1m but I loved the idea. I loved playground section. There we found some cute animals. The bad thing is that all ice cream shops were closed. They have a train ride as well. And on top of our so bad experience were very pricy tickets.
  • Outstanding day out (we used Tesco vouchers to get in even cheaper, but still definitely worth full price for). Lots of space for the animals which was great to see. The highlights were the Lemur walkthrough; you walk on a raised walkway through the Lemur enclosure, and they will randomly appear walking along the handrail, or floor, and stroll right by you. A couple of the keepers were in the enclosure as well and were friendly and helpful, giving us pointers on what to see. We also went on a VIP tour to see the lions and tigers in the carnivore area. We got up real close in a 4x4 to see the lionesses all sprawled out in the sun following their dinner. We also saw the, slightly bonkers, father tiger, chasing a butterfly and leaping into a bush. Our driver, Becky, was most helpful, giving us little potted histories of the animals as we saw them. Definitely 5 star.
