Ticket Update

From the 3rd December, Woburn Safari Park will be operating the Road Safari only.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a covid-secure day out from the comfort of their own car as they journey through the drive through safari to see animals including lions, tigers, rhinos, zebra, ostrich and more!

You'll be able to repeat circuits as many times as you like, as each trip around is a different experience.
