Woburn Safari Park

A day out is even better when it's free and we recently won a family pass to the Zoo from Tilda! We selected our date, the tickets were booked and yesterday we made our way to Woburn Safari Park for our family trip.

Despite rain on the forecast, when we arrived at opening it was dry and reasonably bright. We drove inside and decided to go through the Safari area first before the rain hit, knowing that the animals head to the shelters when it's damp out.

The Mini Mes were fascinated and really excited to be so close to the animals. I'd been before with Jamster but this was a whole new experience for Minxy. She kept saying how awesome it was and that it was 'the best day ever' so she definitely loved it!

Some pictures from the safari....







And everyone's favourite...


We parked next to the foot safari and enjoyed a picnic lunch before going to explore. The rain was now pouring down but we still enjoyed seeing some more animals, especially the cute and friendly marmosets and playful penguins!


Before heading home we popped into the gift shop, where there was LOADS to choose from at reasonable prices, and we repeated the road safari. Both of the Mini Mes settled on a soft toy and the Mr had fun trying on some shades!

  2. Some serious big animals there. I remember Woburn as a child. Glad to hear it still holds its magic. I hope the Mini Mes will remember their day as I did. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
