Woburn Safari Park is taking every necessary precaution to safeguard the health and wellbeing of staff, visitors and animals, and can assure visitors of the following precautions will be in place when we re-open:

  • Every car (containing paying customers, exclusions apply, subject to terms and availability) will be given a 100ml hand sanitiser to use during their visit, this kills 99.99% of all bacteria, germs AND viruses. 

  • Entry to the park with be through our Ridgmont Gate entrance (Sat Nav MK43 0TU), a patrol driver will be at the gate to ensure only Woburn Safari Park guests are allowed entry. 

  • Visitors are only able to enter the park, travelling in your own vehicle, as you are able to self-isolate within your car or in the wide open spaces of the Foot Safari, thus maintaining social distancing, as per Government guidelines.

  • The lead driver or visitor in each car will be asked to read a notice and confirm they have no symptoms of Covid-19 before they enter the park. 

  • Tickets are only available to purchase online to reduce all unnecessary contact with our cashiers.

  • Tickets are strictly limited to maintain safe volumes of cars in the Road Safari and the number of people in the Foot Safari, or using toilet facilities.

  • Foot Safari and Leisure Area walkways have been changed to a one-way system or marked for social distancing as appropriate.
  • Toilet access is for customers only and are located in the main courtyard and in the Safari Restaurant in the leisure area, and are clearly signposted.
  • If you wish to proceed directly to the toilets on arrival at the park - please proceed directly straight on through the Road Safari, until you reach a mini roundabout, turn right until you reach a concrete car park and head into the central courtyard, toilets are on your right.
  • Toilets will be cleaned continuously throughout the day with anti-bacterial and virucidal cleaning products, for the highest levels of safety and hygiene, by the cleaning operatives at the park. This may lead to longer queue times, we appreciate your patience at this time!

  • Staff have been fully briefed and are following the strictest health and safety standards and have all been supplied with the appropriate PPE.


By doing all of the above, we hope that you will have confidence to visit the Park, in the knowledge that we are doing all we can to create a safe and enjoyable place to visit.

Face Covering Policy

The use of face coverings becomes mandatory for customers in shops and takeaway restaurants from 24th July, so we now state that all visitors MUST wear a face covering inside Junglies Gift Shop as well as inside all catering and food outlets

Exemptions apply for young children and also in the following cases. A person does not need to wear a face covering if they have a legitimate reason, including:

  • young children under the age of 11
  • not being able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability
  • if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will causes severe distress
  • if they are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
  • to avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to themselves or others
  • to avoid injury, or to escape a risk of harm, and they do not have a face covering with them
  • to eat or drink, but only if they need to
  • to take medication
  • if a police officer or other official requests the person remove their face covering

There are also scenarios when you are permitted to remove a face covering when asked:

  • If asked to do so by shop staff for the purpose of age identification
  • If speaking with people who rely on lip reading, facial expressions and clear sound, when asked either verbally or in writing, to remove a covering to help with communication.
