This page has been unchanged since it was created in 2006!

there are many links on this page that no longer work, LIVE VIDEO was working fine in 2006, but it has since gone under, GOOGLE VIDEO was in fact a major rival to You Tube in 2006, offering much longer video plays but has since PULLED THE PLUG shedding videos to YOUTUBE without providing the necessary back links!!

anyway, do please VIEW "GO WILD AT WINDSOR" via YOUTUBE

it is a brilliant (commercial) film of Windsor Safari in it's heydey for sure

Terry Nutkins and Chris Packham were hired to DJ this special "documentary" on Windsor Safari Park that lasts a mere 23 minutes, wouldn't it have been marvellous to see it go to a full hour! Never mind, they cover a lot of ground in that 23 minutes DON'T MISS IT!!

The Dolphin shows were always keenly sought by the public. Best to sit further back as the front rows always got wet.

West Midlands Safari Park has provided 40 years of wonderful animal magic!
By Esh Capelo 19 Apr 2013 20:20

The Worcestershire attraction reached its milestone birthday this week with a look back over the highlights of the past four decades and a tantalising glimpse of its future plans.

Film goddess Sophia Loren opened the Bewdley park in 1973 when its animal and reptile army numbered fewer than 450 – and included a guard dog, a turkey and a pony.

Now it has nearly 2,000 animals including the UK’s only pride of white lions and is heavily involved in animal conservation.

Delighting 1.3 million visitors a year, the park has had many highlights and seen its fair share of headline-grabbing drama, too.

The country’s first baby male white rhinoceros was born there and it has become home to the UK’s biggest number of cheetahs, white tigers and hippopotamuses.

A year after opening, 130 baboons escaped and had a night on the town in Kidderminster.

On another occasion the park was threatened by a huge bush fire, while park reptile specialist Mark O’Shea survived a bite from a deadly King Cobra.

Bob Lawrence, WMSP director, said: “In the greater scheme of things 40 years is a bat of an eyelid, which makes the tremendous strides we’ve made even more remarkable and I’m proud to have been a part of it.

“But life begins at 40 as they say – so watch this space!”

Now plans are in the pipeline to transform the safari park further with exciting, far-reaching proposals.

These include building a 250-room hotel, an indoor water park, a new rail halt and a monorail link which will connect the southern boundary of the park with Severn Valley Railway.

The aim is to give the park the glamour of a global four-star holiday resort and attract thousands more visitors.

Timeline - 40 years of animal magic

April 17 1973: The park was opened by Sophia Loren. Spring Grove House – previously the family home of the Webb family – was incorporated into the park and used as a cafeteria. Soon after, the first rides and entertainment were introduced.

1974 : 130 baboons escaped and spent the night in the local town – eventually they were all returned to the park.

1976 : During the worst drought in history, a huge bush fire enveloped neighbouring land and was halted at the park premises with the aid of helicopters and the Army.

1977 : It became the first safari park to gain membership of the Zoological Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

1978 : A Lombard RAC Rally stage was held in the animal reserves. A resident Sea Lion Show arrived from the South of France.

1980 : The first hot air balloon meet was held at the park. That became an annual event for 17 years.

1985 : The first major rollercoaster ride was opened – The Cobra.

1987 : The Reptile House was opened in the then Pets Corner area.

1988 : “Wally”, a tiny wallaby joey, was hand-reared by park staff. An old hat was used to replicate his mother’s pouch.

1989 : After a very unusual request from a Rowley Regis couple for a wallaby to attend their wedding, Wally obliged, wearing a bow tie for the event.

1990 : A monkey, nicknamed The Artful Dodger escaped from the Monkey Jungle. He was at large for 17 days, before being captured in Bridgnorth. A special Monkey Hotline was set up for locals to report sightings.

1993 : 150 animals were relocated to West Midland Safari Park when Windsor Safari Park closed. Ongava Game Reserve – an associate park – opened in Namibia.

1994 : Rhino are released from their enclosure to roam free in the African Reserve amongst the cars.

1995 : White rhino arrived from South Africa to establish a breeding group.

1998 : Elephants were reintroduced at the park – orphans that arrived from South Africa.

1999 : Tiger World was incorporated into the safari – white tigers could be seen in the country’s first ever drive-through quarantine facility.

2001 : After almost 30 years of trying, the first baby rhino was born on March 1, following an 18-month pregnancy that was diagnosed with the help of the Zoological Society of London.

2002 : A new Sea Lion Theatre was built.

2004 : The UK’s first ever pride of rare African white lions went on show, representing the biggest ever single animal investment the park has ever made.

2008 : A major Cheetah drive-by was incorporated into the animal reserves.

2013 : Realm of the Lions – a new themed drive-through African lion exhibit – was opened in the animal reserves to mark the 40th anniversary
