What's New on Safari this summer?

Meet some of the newest safari stars at Woburn Safari Park and get closer than ever to some amazing wildlife

Three little bears

Three North American black bear cubs - Alabama, Sekani and Kaska, all born last year, can be seen in the main reserve alongside a family of Canadian timber wolves and seven other black bears. 

The youngsters are very inquisitive and playful; visitors will be able to spot them exploring their new home and causing lots of mischief!

Meet the all the new babies 

It's the start of what looks to be a bumper crop of new babies at the park!  

Sunday 14th May saw the arrival of a male Rothschild's giraffe calf, born in the brand new Giraffe House to experienced mum, Freya. You can read more about the giraffe calf here.

African Forest is alive with the patter of little monkey feet, as we welcome two tiny monkey babies to the troops.  So far keepers have celebrated the arrival of one patas monkey named Rayna (pictured below) and one Barbary macaque (as yet un-named), with more expected over the coming weeks. 

 Rayna the Baby Patas Monkey born April 2017

Three eland antelope calves can be seen in the African Savannah drive-through reserves, as they form their own little 'creche' together.

You can also spot a new arrival in the Addax paddock, as you leave Giraffe Junction. On your left, spot the small white antelope calf, with his stumpy horns just beginning to grow in.  It's the first birth of an Addax in 14 years at the park, and as this classified as 'critically endangered', it's a great achievement for the endangered species breeding programme.

Farmyard Friends

Animal Encounters' newest enclosure will give visitors the chance to meet the lovely group of donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs and ponies living at the Park. Farmyard Friends will get you face to face with these friendly animals - don't forget to bring your camera for that perfect selfie!

In June, the Animal Encounters team will be welcoming another new species to the Park - Red Panda. Stay tuned for more information on this coming soon!
