Zoos in Milton Keynes
This has to be the best I've been to. Quite expensive but well worth the money. You can drive around as many times as just want. We saw bears picking raspberries, lions so many, elephants playing in water and sand. Be warned if you try and feed the monkeys in their enclosure and you will be excorted off the premises. We saw it happen. Well done woburn. The outdoor areas are massive with lots to do at no extra cost. A fantastic day out!

We love Woburn Safari Park! As well as a fantastic safari (you almost always see absolutely loads of animals - the hilarious giraffes are our favourites!) there's plenty to do on foot. Our two children (aged 4 and nearly 2) happily play on the adventure playground for ages. Then there's a little train ride (where you can see some of the safari animals again) - 15 minutes of 'choo choo' calls from all the parents on the train! The Swan boats are basically pedaloes which you can take out on the small lake - great fun! There are penguins and seals to watch and other animals to explore and perhaps touch in the Animal Encounters area.If it rains, there are two soft play areas. One has bouncy castles and is suited to under 5s. the other is a huge and fairly challenging soft play frame with a bumpy slide and two 'death' slides. These are great for the older children.The restaurant at Woburn serves decent food but is a tad pricy so best to take a packed lunch if you can. The gift shop is a joy - there are lots of reasonably priced things (we bought lovely animal maks for Â£1 each for the kids) as well as some nice gifts for presents.

Woburn safari is a great day out. There have a huge range of animals on the safari bit, which you can go round more than once. There also have a walk about zoo, where you can walk amongst the wallabies, see farm animals, see sea lions and also feed some birds â€“ which is a very interesting experience indeed. There is a restaurant, however this is slightly over priced and I would recommend taking your own food. The entrance fee is reasonable and if you go in the spring or autumn, there are usually offers and discount available. A great place to visit and a lovely experience.

In the heart of Bedfordshire, is Woburn Safari Park.If you are ever in the area, and have a car I would advise you to venture in to the park and meet the animals.The park is open most of the year, but it may be advisable to check on their website on www.woburnsafari.co.uk for exclusions, and latest ticket prices. You will enter the park via the Safari Park Drive, which is a pre determined road through the animal enclosures. Most of the animals are free roaming throughout the Safari drive; the first section of the drive is where you will encounter the more placid animals like Zebra, Giraffe, and Rhinoceros.Follow the road round and you will enter a set of gates and into the Wolves and Bear enclosure, then onto the Tiger enclosure, Lions Enclosure, back into the Main section then onto the Monkey Enclosure. Throughout your trip the animals can be seen quite visibly from your vehicle, and the animals will sometimes come and investigate you and your car, enabling you to get some very good photographs. After the Safari Park Drive you can park up your car in the designated areas and go and walk around the rest of the park, you can investigate the Lima's which roam free around you in their enclosure. Be mesmerised by the mischievous squirrel monkey's when in the Monkey Business enclosure, many will come sit on your shoulder and try to thieve things from your hands and pockets. So beware. Take a walk through the Australian Walkabout section and meet the wallabies, Or for smaller animals got to Rainbow Landings, and be amazed at the colours of the free flying lorikeets who will land on your hand to drink a cup of nectar. There are also Reptiles, Sea Lions, Marmosets, Penguins, Red River Hogs, Donkeys, Birds of Prey, and Elephants. Some of these animals will be performing displays throughout the seasons, so you can see the amazing things they can do.There are also many different play areas for children of all ages, Indoor and Outdoor sections, with Bouncy Castles, Rope Swings, Adventure Equipment, and also Swan Boats which float you out to the middle of the lake.On site is a Restaurant which sells food (although I would say it to be overpriced.) They serve Hot and cold food and also serve smaller portions for the little ones. Nearby is a Gift Shop Which sells many items from sweets to clothing, stuffed animals to ornaments. It is well worth stopping in and purchasing a little memento of your trip.There are many information points, and other educational material positioned around the Foot Safari area for the children to discover and many of the display area's are around the gift shop area, which I feel is a good idea as it keeps the children entertained.A small Train can also take you around some of the attractions in the park, which can be fun for the smaller children to do. Between the Foot Safari area and the Safari Drive area are the Elephants, they also perform to show their strength and the dexterity of their bodies, It is fun to watch and the keepers are always around if you have any questions relating to the elephants or infact any of the animals, there are many keepers around the park, and they are more than willing to discuss the animals around their section that they look after.When you have exhausted yourselves, walking around the many enclosures of the Foot Safari, jump back into your car, and drive around the main Safari Park again. The amount of times you can drive around the Safari circuit is unlimited throughout the day.A good day out for all the family..
