What Makes it Super
The safari park is a great day out because you can drive through as many times as you wish, meaning that if you miss something the first time, you can always drive back through. If you’d prefer not to drive, you can book a guided minibus tour and be driven around the park – please ask for details upon arrival – early booking is recommended as it is very popular. In the amusement park area of the park there is the Tiny Tots Theme Park - an area that has been created especially for young adventurers. (Theme parks are open during the summer season only & rides are charged extra).

We visited the safari park for the 2nd time yesterday we absolutely loved it such a brilliant day out, so much to do there. I think I might have enjoyed more than my kids lol, the new dinosaur walk was brilliant my kids loved that, the food there weren't that great but there are places to eat out side the safari park a lot cheaper too. Can't wait to go back there!! Collapse
Wonderful close ups of interesting animals

We booked our tickets using Tesco vouchers which meant the entry fee was minimal (though this does exclude you from the return visit offer). We arrived about when they opened and, in two cars, queued for a while (not the fastest ticketing system). We bought 2 boxes of animal feed as there were four of us (all adults) but in hindsight we only needed one as we had one left over. We wanted a coffee and toilet break before the safari drive so parked alongside the food court. The only place saving drinks was a snack bar type place with basic machine coffee which was a bit disappointing. The toilets were quite a walk (one of our group has to walk with a stick so we left one car parked and drove over to the toilet block, which was perfectly adequate, though only half open (fine at this quite time of year). We returned to our car for our Safari drive. Reviews here said it should take about an hour but can be slower when busy so to expect maybe two. It really wasn't that busy but the sun was shining and we were here to enjoy ourselves. We started out with a variety of antelope-type animals who have no shame in approaching the car for food, some more polite than others, but it was great to be able to feed these exotic animals. With two lanes of traffic you could generally take your time to get the right picture, or feed something but you occasionally get a more impatient visitor wanting you out of the way. Despite recommendations (instructions) not to open the car windows more than half way, we were unsurprised to see young children hanging out of car windows and throwing food all over the tarmac making the obstructions taking advantage of the dropped food a little hardere to negotiate. Again, despite clear instructions on the food boxes NOT to feed camels or zebra again parents seemed to not be worried about their little ones hanging out of the cars and often getting shouted at by the roving keepers to obey the rules and not to feed them. Camels and Zebra are opportunist and if you choose to break the rules they are more than happy to help you (you don't need all your fingers, right?). In certain areas there are "air lock" type drive in areas where you pull up the gates behind you slide shut, then yours open. This is to ensure the more dangerous animals don't escape. This worked well apart from one occasion when a car driver seemed to not understand the system and pulled up behind a car inside the box effectively blocking the back gate from closing. It took gesticulating from other drivers, cars inside the box squeezing together to make room for him (he couldn't grasp reversing) and a keeper on loudspeaker to finally get him within the 'safe' zone so they could close, then open, the gate - must have taken 10 minutes. Some people are clearly oblivious to the world around them. It makes it safer for everyone if everyone (adults anyway) are aware of the potential dangers to driving through areas of non-domestic animals. Some animals, like white tigers, leopards and African painted dogs are behind fences but we were amazed to drive through the area containing lions who were free to wander around the cars (albeit with the windows up!) You can choose an "off-road" path or regular tarmac here - both accessible by ordinary cars as far as we could tell and some of the lions were closer to the off-road path but we stayed on tarmac - and got some really good photos. As we re-entered the main open enclosure where feeding was permitted, we were amazed to see a rhino headed down the centre of the road towards us. He passed our car within inches which was an amazing sight to see. We also loved watching the young elephant running around and waited a while and were rewarded with seeing the new baby rhino - though he stayed in their open shed. The safari was very enjoyable - with our least-interested person driving, the rest of us taking some great photos. We were lucky to have a lovely sunny morning in February! When we finally finished the tour we noticed it had taken us almost three and a half hours! Really. We took a lot of photos and fed animals and just watched but we had a fabulous time. We headed back to the food court and were able to park fairly closely. We walked through the park to the Explorers Restaurant. It was busy even at 2.30pm but we found a table and got in line for some food - just garlic bread and chips which were good (and warm) - the other food also looked really good. Again the drinks were machine variety but there were a few coffee choices. It was reasonably priced for what we had. We then headed into the park - checking the schedule of events (we'd missed most of them by 3pm and park closed at 4pm). We walked over to see the hippos all asleep on the muddy shore. As we watched they all got up and one by one headed into their night enclosure so that was pretty cool to watch. The funfair was closed in February but some of the rides looked teddy bear friendly. At this point it started to rain so we decided to call it a day missing the other walkable areas - we did have a quick stop to watch the penguins before hitting the giftshop. There was the usual magnets, pens, etc (no badges that we could find) and the most vast array of stuffed toys you can imagine - the commonly found ones like lions but also more unusual animals, all found in the park. They had 3 or 4 sizes in each to suit all budgets. We had a great day out but the weather was on our side. Collapse
Tons of animals and lots to do.

Went with family on a days outing. Bought some animal feed which proved a great deal of fun with the deer. The food and drinks were good and not too expensive. Had a great healthy chicken and mango salad for £6.50. Coffee was good. There are some rare species on view and all look clean, well fed and cared for. Had to laugh at the meerkats standing upright under heat lamps and the leaf-cutter ants carrying huge loads. Would recommend. Collapse

Went with my partner and absolutely loved every minute of it! It was incredible to get so close to the animals and be able to feed some. We have family in Wolverhampton and when we next visit them we will definitely be back!

We arrived at about 10:30 and no queues at payment booths. We went straight for the safari trail and with our deer food in hand we fed the deer straight away. The signs are clear, and was easy to get around when others stopped to see animals. The lions and tigers were lazing around but saw them easily. The enclosures are large, and all animals looked well cared for. We spent over an hour going through the safari then went to the walk around park. Very clean and well kept! The bat cave and penguins were great, as was the sea lion show. I loved the dinosaurs- really good! We didn't pay for the rides as was enough to see and do without them. We then went through safari again and all animals were walking around, the lions weaved their way through the stopped cars, a big highlight for us, as was mum and baby rhino walking across road 3 feet from our car! A really good day out, would love to visit again. Collapse
