REVIEW : We Had A Roaring Time at West Midlands Safari Park

By Vanessa Woollatt – 19th November 2019

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.
