Longleat Safari & Adventure Park has been one of the UK’s best-loved attractions for over 60 years. It features an extensive Safari Park, is home to BBC Animal Park and CBBC Roar and also has over 15 fabulous attractions, including the new multi million pound Jungle Kingdom and Longleat House, one of the most stunning stately homes in Britain.

The UK’s no. 1 Safari Park first opened its gates to the public in April 1966; the first of its kind outside Africa. It was the beginning of a revolution in zoological collections that has spread all over the globe.

For the very first time, animals were able to move freely across hundreds of acres of land and interact naturally with each other.

Today it is difficult to imagine the furore aroused when Longleat’s plans for an initial 100-acre lion reserve were made public. There were dire warnings of big cats running amok in the Wiltshire countryside, local clergymen were up in arms, and there were even questions asked in the Houses of Parliament.

In spite of these fears, the ground-breaking concept of the drive through safari park proved a hugely popular draw for visitors. Over forty years on, Longleat Safari Park remains one of the country’s leading wildlife attractions.

Over the years Longleat has grown to incorporate a whole range of fun-packed family attractions, including Jungle Kingdom; a newly opened multi-million pound attraction where visitors can get right up close to the animals. Other highlights include the Adventure Castle – an amazing kid’s adventure playground and castle, the Longleat Hedge Maze – one of the world’s longest labyrinths, new for this year – deer feeding at Deer Valleyand still to come in 2011, Hunters of the Sky – a spectacular bird of prey shows run by the Hawk Conservancy Trust and much much more.

Woburn Safari review 25 June 2009

Woburn Safari Park is split into two sections, firstly you have the 'drive-through' animals, then you can park up and move onto the 'foot safari'. You can go straight through to the foot safari first and come back on the re-entry road to the drive through and you can go around both as many times as you like. There is plenty of free parking, and some grass areas for picnics and enjoying the sun however there is no extensive gardens or planting like many zoos have, nor are there any 'photo points', sculptures or anything like that. Both sections are easy enough to find your way around, there are not many signposts but these are not needed really.

Drive through Wolf and Black Bear enclosure - I think this must be the only one of its kind in the UK, and it is brilliant to be able to see Wolves and Bears together as they would naturally be in the wild. One tip - Remember to look up in the trees to spot all of the bears! Both species also hide in self dug dens in the ground which is great for them, but might mean you need another trip around to spot them all.

Drive through Monkey Woods - 3 Species are in here which is great and they don't seem to destroy the car like many drive through Monkey enclosures. It is always fun to see baby monkeys playing on your car!

Rainbow Landing - Free flying Lorikeets and Lorys in an inside aviary which is looking very dated but is pleasant enough, especially when the waterfall is on. It costs about £1 to buy 2 pots of nectar to feed the birds and be prepared, because if they are hungry they will mob you when you walk in!

Lemur Walkthrough - Is not the largest or most heavily planted Lemur walkthrough we have seen however it is lovely, with a couple of huge trees and lots of Bamboo for the Lemurs to play in which they seemed to love. They have 3 species of Lemur, 2 of which are rarley seen in Zoos (most zoos seem to favour Ring-tailed Lemurs). They have Black and White Ruffed Lemurs which lift their arms up for you to tickle their armpits sometimes! Also Red Bellied Lemurs, of which one is a new born baby, and Red Fronted Lemurs which are smaller than the Ruffed. There is a talk on at various times throughout the day when most of the Lemurs come quite close for the keepers to feed.

Squirrel Monkey Walkthrough - A lovely sized enclosure for these small Primates, but do not take food, drink or babies dummies in here as the monkeys might well take them off you! The keepers have their work cut out keeping the monkeys from climbing on visitors but generally the monkeys are good natured if you respect the rules on the gate. The feeding time is great to see, when all the monkeys come down from the trees to see how many mealworms they can stuff in their mouths. Strictly no touching of the monkeys is allowed.

Australian Walkthrough - Very spacious enclosure for Wallabies and Rheas, very strange as Rheas are not even from Australia! At feeding time there is an opportunity to stroke the Wallabies and hand them a bit of food - great for small children.

Penguins - Small and dated Penguin pool however it allows a good view of the Penguins and there is a window so you can see them swim underwater. The feeding times are worth seeing, 2 children are chosen from the audience to help the keepers feed the Penguins and the talk is very informative.

Birds of Prey Display - Don't forget to go to this display as its worth seeing some beautiful birds free flying.
