The Woburn Safari Park is located on Bedfordshire Parkland and is 300 acres huge. You can start with a road safari, then walk around and enjoy a ton of leisure activities. You start off at the entrance with a map which shows you which animals are located where. It’s a huge jungle with pathways for the car to move around. You can spot Zebras, Horses, Bisons, Tigers, Lions, Bears, Giraffes, Elephants, Deer, Rhinos, Antelopes, Wolves, Bongos, Macaques, Monkeys and so many more!
Once you’re done with the car safari, you can set out on foot and interact with some of the friendly and some playful four legged buddies. The mongoose, meerkats, lemurs and porcupines will make you feel like a part of the Madagascar movie. We were right in time for their meal time so we could actually watch them being fed and running around playfully.
There is a Sea Lion Cove which is the indoor demonstration pool and is home to Californian Sea Lions. You can check the events schedule and catch a 3d movie about the sea lions. You can even catch an owl show called the Birds of Prey demonstration as per the timetable. And if you like bird watching (literally), you could take a walk into the Rainbow Landing, buy your pot of nectar, keep your camera ready and wait for the birds to land on you for their food. The lories and lorikeets – brightly feathered parrots will be hovering over and on you for the nectar.
My absolute favourite section of the foot safari was strolling through the Australian Walkabout. The Australian Walkabout is home to Greater Rhea and Red Necked Wallabies which belong to the kangaroo family. Imagine walking around with these lovelies hopping around you.
There is a lot more to do here, you can enjoy the shows, dine at the cafe or just spend time walking around the lush park. The key is to start early so you have enough time to spend here.
