Come face-to-face with the female Asian elephants in the peaceful woodland of the Woburn Estate in your unforgettable Elephant Encounter experience!

Meet the stars of the safari on an off-road guided tour of the animal reserves as you learn about the amazing animals living at the Park, including lions, macaque monkeys, tigers, giraffes, rhinos and more!

Next, you'll be transported into the peaceful Woburn woodland, where you'll get up close to the Asian elephant herd, including adorable juvenile Tarli. Woburn Safari Park is the only place in the UK you can enjoy getting this close to these majestic animals. Walk alongside the elephants and watch them graze and dust-bathe as they would in the wild - with no barriers between you!

Plus, enjoy an incredible photo opportunity with one of the adult female Asian elephants as a lasting memento to your fantastic day out as part of your VIP package.

  • Entrance to Woburn Safari Park from opening time
  • The latest Safari Park Guidebook (subject to availability)
  • A £10 lunch voucher to use in one of two restaurants at the Park (includes a hot or cold meal and a drink)
  • A mini VIP Safari Off Road Adventure



The Elephant Encounter costs £498 for up to two people (£249 per additional person, up to a maximum of four people total per booking).
