Take a look at our pick of the must-visit safari parks this summer, you won’t be disappointed. Especially as you can experience the thrill of driving alongside beautiful and endangered species!

West Midlands Safari Park

This 150-acre safari provides entertainment for hours. Get right up close to a wide range of animals; cheetahs, elephants, zebras, the world’s rarest breed of deer…to name but a few! Open your window and you can even feed camels and giraffes from the comfort of your car, now that’s something special.

The overall experience is truly amazing and it’s not only fun for the children, a day spent at West Midland Safari Park is an unforgettable experience for the whole family.

You may have to queue to get in, but that says a lot, doesn’t it? It’ll most definitely be worth the wait. And anyway, here’s a game for you whilst you’re waiting: try and find a funny number plate!

Longleat Safari Park

Longleat was the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa, and for that reason alone, we love it. Why? Well, if it wasn’t for Longleat Safari Park, other safari parks in the UK may not even exist! Now that would be a panda-monium; that’s right, there are pandas at this park, cute little red ones.

You may want to keep your windows closed whilst you drive through the monkeys’ habitat however, as they’ll clamber all over the car to come and say hello! As much as it would be nice to take a monkey home with you, we don’t think Longleat Safari Park would approve…

Be sure to take a trip here this summer and you’ll no doubt be in for a hugely enjoyable day out.

Woburn Safari Park

Drive through the large animal exhibits at Woburn Safari Park and encounter species of all kinds. Black bears, tigers and white bears are just a few of the incredible animals you will come across on your drive through the 360 acre safari park.

However, we’ll let you in on this: the safari park has a tree top adventure, so if you do fancy stretching those legs (and getting some real monkey action, venture out of your car and take part in action-packed obstacles at Go Ape. Trainers are a must.
