When you adopt an animal at Woburn Safari Park, you are adopting the entire group of animals resident at the park, rather than an individual named animal. This is because Woburn Safari Park is part of an international endangered species breeding programme where individual animals may be required to move to another zoo or safari park. 



No, when you adopt the animals at Woburn Safari Park you join a group of other fantastic supporters who have also chosen to adopt the animals living at the Park.



Your adoption will begin on the 25th December 2020 as we know these make the perfect Christmas gift. The adoption is then valid until 31st December 2021. 



All of Animal Adoptions are a one off payment of £44.99 and once you complete the payment online, you'll receive a confirmation email with your receipt. 

The email will also contain your transaction reference and a link so you can provide the address of where to send the Animal Adoption Gift pack. 

Your payment covers the cost of the admission ticket, goodie bag, cuddly toy, printed certificate, postage and packing. The remainder goes towards the upkeep of the animals living at the park. 


All of the animals living at the park are given access to their respective paddocks and drive-through reserves throughout the day, subject to health and safety considerations. The animals living in the Road Safari at Woburn are given the freedom to live as freely as they would in the wild, roaming and grazing in large grassland and woodland reserves. 

On rare occasions an enclosure may need to be closed for essential maintenance, so unfortunately for these reasons we cannot guarantee that you will be able to see your adopted animal when you visit.

In poor weather, all animals at the Park have access to shelters that they can use at any time throughout the day (visible on the Road Safari route).
