Nestled deep in the heart of Woburn Safari Park – home to magnificent wild animals including lions, giraffes, tigers, elephants, and more – The Safari Lodge at Woburn Safari Park provides an exceptional location for weddings, receptions and alternative celebrations for animal lovers and couples wanting a truly unique experience to share with your guests.

Overlooking both the Park’s Swan Lake and the Desert Springs enclosures, The Safari Lodge provides an out-of-the-ordinary backdrop for your wedding.

With a large south-facing veranda to the rear and panoramic windows, it provides a bright and spacious room that can be used in a variety of ways, and offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony space.

Your guests may even be able to spot some of the nearby animals – including meerkats and otters - as they look out across the Park.


We know that weddings can go past in a blur, which is why the location is so important.

The fleeting moments that you capture give you the chance to relive the memories of your special day for a lifetime, and our friendly team will happily guide you and your photographer / videographer around the best places to make the most of every photo and every frame.


For an adventurous addition to an already unforgettable day you could also add an exclusive VIP safari tour or book an animal encounter with some of the most loved residents in the Park, or if you’re looking for something a little more laidback and leisurely you could book the pedalo boats or a private train ride for your guests, or hire the bouncy castle to keep little ones entertained!

Whatever your preference and budget our experienced Events Manager will be happy to advise on these extra touches that will help you create your perfect day!
