Educational Visits


At the heart of Woburn Safari Park are twin missions of education and conservation.

Through education we help others understand the science behind the species at the Park and inspire the next generation of animal conservationists.

Our educational visits, workshop days and more, offer opportunities for passionate learning through the unique chance to get up close to many endangered species.

We have also achieved national recognition for the exceptional quality of our educational visits, having been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge, endorsed by the UK Department for Education.
