ACADEMIC RESEARCH: Educational Trips to Woburn Safari Park

Woburn Safari Park is a great place for children of all ages to learn about animals and conservation. Our education programme is available for all ages from nursery up to post graduate level and students have many opportunities to learn across the Park.

The benefits of booking a school trip to Woburn Safari Park:


School and college groups can enjoy a significantly discounted admission rate and enjoy unparalleled close encounters with some of the most magnificent and endangered animals in the world, including lion cubs and an elephant juvenile!


School children and students can enjoy a 30 minute interactive session in our Visitor Enrichment Centre. These sessions combine technology with artefacts and, for some lucky children, the chance to meet a live animal.


All of our sessions are linked to the national curriculum and give children the chance to learn more about animals and conservation in a lively, hands on way. Key Stage One and Two can discover more about endangered species, habitats, feeding, senses and moving or grouping animals. Key Stage Three can find out more about endangered species and the law, habitats and adaptations and classification whilst Key Stage Four can enjoy learning about the role of a zoo or how Woburn helps conservation.


We also extend the learning outside of the classroom. Schools can book an educator to join them on their coach journey around the drive through. As they make their way through animal enclosures, their guide will give them an interactive tour including information our animal adaptations, conservation and how we care for our animals, along with lots of fun facts. This is a great way for schools to get more education into their day and link again with the national curriculum. 

Some schools prefer to take their teaching session in the Foot Safari where they can explore on foot with smaller mammals, birds, sea lions and elephants. Schools have the option of booking an enclosure talk. They choose the enclosure and our educators meet them there to talk about animals found in it.
