Tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday 13th June

Woburn Safari Park has been given the go ahead to reopen the Road Safari (drive-through only) to visitors on Monday 15th June. This announcement follows a guidance update from the government and an inspection from Central Bedfordshire Council.

Woburn Safari Park said it is taking every necessary precaution to safeguard the health and wellbeing of staff, visitors and animals.

Protective measures include limiting ticket purchases to online only and managing the number of available tickets each day. Staff will be following the strictest health and safety standards including wearing appropriate PPE.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday 13th June. Visitors will be able to wild animals in wide open outdoor spaces, while respecting social distancing guidelines.

Ticket prices will be reduced, as only the Road Safari will be open in the first week.

Spot the new arrivals

The Safari Park said that it had a lockdown baby boom. Two adorable bear cubs and an alpaca baby are amongst the new arrivals.

The two North American black bear cubs are the first to be born at the Park since 2016. The new babies have settled into a ground-level den, in an enclosed half-acre pen spending quiet bonding time with mum Phoenix and away from other bears.

The female alpaca baby born to father Pyro and mother Lydia is the fifth born to the herd. Described by keepers as confident, having floppy ears and settling in nicely, she has already been mingling with other young alpacas that were born last year.

The Foot Safari will open when it is safe to do so. For more information on the precautions taken at the park visit woburnsafari.co.uk.
