A great full day’s entertainment. Safari Park captivating, with added fun of the Limas & feeding Giraffes & Deer. So much to see & do, from Hands on experiences to live Dancing. What a family treat.
Awesome! Despite a thunderstorm and torrential down pours my family had an incredible day. We drove through the safari first thing in the morning, sadly the animals weren’t overly active, however the monkeys were the stars of the show, causing endless lovable mischief. Then after spending the afternoon in the square and enjoying a fun river cruise with some very loud but adorable sealions we returned back on safari just after 5pm. The rain was horrendous causing the monkeys to use my car as shelter supplying my children with delightful entertainment. Following on from there the tigers, lions and wolves were brilliant, lots of activity and playfulness going on. Well worth hanging around until end of the day when they are more active and the visitors to safari are few!!! Will definitely be returning. Thank you longleat
Our visit was fantastic. The price for the 2 day ticket is beyond worth it for the experience. We spent an afternoon walking around the house, garden, took a boat trip and visited the Jungle Kindgom, the Lorikeet Aviary, Monkey Temple, Koala Creek, and rode the railway. We left at closing and returned the second day to complete the safari drive, feeding the giraffes, walking through the lemurs, and just marvelling at the lions, tigers, deer and all the other animals on the drive. We finished our second day by revisiting most of the Jungle Kingdom and Monkey Temple, a second boat trip on the lake, along with the Adventure Castle and Hedge Maze (which were both very fun for the young child in our party, along with us big kids!) The staff were wonderfully friendly and passionate about the animals they were working with. Very much looking forward to coming back very soon!

This troop of over-excited monkeys thought that their birthdays had all come at once when a car, complete with suitcases, was left in their enclosure.
