Safari parks are a great way to watch and learn about animals in an environment similar to their natural habitat, and there are some great ones in the UK. Woburn Safari Park in Bedfordshire is a fantastic day out for animal lovers and family and friends. You are able to drive through the park, as you are with most safari parks, and enjoy close encounters with some of the world’s most spectacular and endangered animals, with the park boasting over 80 species. Woburn also has something extra to offer, if you need it, with an Abbey, Golf Course and Gardens. It is the ideal destination for a glorious summer day out. For a day packed with animal encounters and wonderful wildlife, why not visit Woburn. If you are thinking of heading to Bedfordshire to visit Woburn or just fancy a break we have B&B's, hotels, lodges & cottages here at Bluebells & Seashells. Woburn has a summer packed full of activities, so along with everything that they have to offer day to day they have even more happening in their diary in the coming months.

Longleat Safari & Adventure Park, one of the UK's most famous safari parks is also another great family day out destination, again located in a beautiful part of the country so an ideal place to visit if you are based in one of our many B&B's, cottages, guest house or hotels in Wiltshire Safari parks are a great alternative to visiting Zoo's, you are not only more likely to see much larger animals, frequently from Sub-Saharan Africa such as Giraffe, Lions, Rhinoceros, Elephants, Zebras and Antelope, but also safari parks are generally much larger than zoo's so are often considered much kinder to the animals in question. As with Woburn and Longleat safari parks often have other attractions attached to them, so there is so much more to offer which means that there will inevitably be something for everyone.

With Bluebells & Seashells which ever safari park you decide to visit we are sure to have the right accommodation in the area to turn your day trip into a weekend to remember.
