REVIEW : We Had A Roaring Time at West Midlands Safari Park
Why we loved West Midlands Sarafi Park
West Midlands Safari Park is a great day out for any age. There is a huge range of things to see and do, there is no opportunity to get bored here, plus it is great in any weather (within reason of course).
To spend a full day here! The four-mile self-drive Safari itself took us between 90 minutes and two hours to drive around and this was on a quiet day. After that you will need at the very least another couple of hours to really see everything and that’s not including the theme park and food stops. It really is jam packed and full of excitement. I would recommend snacks for the car and a few toys for the younger ones (just keep them away from the animals).
Value for money:
At £24 per adult, £19 per child and concessions £22 it isn’t the cheapest day out; however, it is certainly not the most expensive family attraction I have visited. The theme park is an optional extra and costs £14.50 per adult, £12.50 per child and £13.50 for concessions. There is also an option for a four-ride ticket which is £6. The large ‘Boj’s Giggly park’ play area is free and was just enough for my 16-month year old, she didn’t want to leave and burned off all her energy for the ride home.
I would say that it is most definitely good value for money based upon the amount there is to see and do and the full day out that it provides.
Setting the scene:
Nestled in a small village between Worcester and Birmingham, this huge attraction really is a wonder. Zoo, Safari, Farm and theme park all rolled into one, you can really see why this attraction is award winning. Drive straight up to the ticket office, there is no need to get out of the car before embarking on the safari, then park up and marvel at the huge range of attractions. This fabulous day out is just perfect for the whole family.
What to look out for:
The self-drive safari is home to some of the worlds most beautiful and critically endangered animals. It is split into African and Asian areas. From gentle Giraffes, stunning Zebras and mesmerising white rhino to magnificent Sumatran Tigers, Majestic elephants and roaring white lions, almost all of the animals are free-roaming and can literally walk straight past your car.
The discovery trail hosts a number of exhibits from a daily Sea Lion show and a penguin cove. You can even hand feed Lorikeets and much more.
Not forgetting our endangered friends, the ‘Land of the Living Dinosaurs’, a £2.5 million project that holds the title of the UK’s largest animatronic dinosaur attraction.
You can also explore ‘Ice Age’, an immersive, multi-sensory experience and the ‘African Village’. Here you can walk with Lemurs, view cheeky Meerkats and feed mischievous Somali Sheep, Pygmy Goats and Cameroon Sheep.
Food and Drink:
After the safari itself, there is a huge range of eateries from burger stalls, ice cream stands and a pizzeria or you can enjoy a sit-down lunch at one of their two wonderfully themed main restaurants – Dino Diner or Burger Co.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
