  • The best ZOO we have ever been to! We have such an amazing time visiting Woburn Safari Park. There is a part where you can drive through and see all of the animals and there is also a picnic area...

  • There were very animals but plenty of cars!! Have been a few times before and it has gone downhill. It’s a very expensive day out. Won’t go again.

  • Just spent the day here and have mixed feelings. The drive around safari is brilliant, the animals have plenty of space to roam and relax although some areas could do with a few more animals as we had to do a couple of trips around to see them all. The rest of the park feels slightly baron and neglected compared to other parks. There's a lot to do but it lacks attention. Today was a hot day in July and yet only one food outlet was open for refreshments. Much of the park was closed as well which I would understand if it was January but not in peak season. We also had a pushchair and according to the map there are many parts which are inaccessible. I'd love to know why those with pushchairs and wheelchairs have to miss out? We did go around one "inaccessible area" and it was hilly. The map makes it seem like you can't go there at all which isn't really the case. Either way better access is needed. Our group all felt the park has good parts but when you're paying nearly £30 a ticket you expect a bit more attention to detail and you expect the whole park to be open and accessible. The price of a ticket should reflect this if not.
  • Access for wheelchair users and people with buggy's is sherry to say the least. Uneven footpaths, lots of small steps on the footpaths. Also, the Australian walk, advertised at 1km , is actually about 100m because the tour is closed off - but you don't find out until you get to the end and have to turn around. This means negotiating the step slopes with a hairpin bend in the middle twice. What's wrong with putting a sign up? Lots of signs " keep your Windows closed" " do not feed the animals" , but lots of people ignoring it. Keep waiting for some little child, that mum is filming as it feeds the monkey's, to have is arm ripped off. Don't want it to happen, but it will one day. Also people in the tiger enclosure wound Windows down to take photos. Scary for those watching. There was also a youngster of around 5-7 driving round the lion enclosure. Food is good, not too expensive, ample car parking. Just needs bringing into the 21 at century for access. And better monitoring of the 'won't happen to me' brigade.Then it will be perfect.
