West Midland Safari & Leisure Park
With several distinct zones—including African savannahs and the UK’s largest animatronic dinosaur attraction—West Midland Safari & Leisure Park is a popular family-friendly destination. Highlights include driving among lions, rhinos, and giraffes during the Safari Drive; riding roller coasters in the Adventure Theme Park; enjoying hands-on animal encounters; and more.
There’s plenty to see and do at West Midland Safari & Leisure Park. Take a self-guided safari drive through an African Savannah and Asian jungle, before learning about reptiles or lemurs at one of the daily talks or watching penguin, hippo, and meerkat feedings.
You can also explore discovery trails on foot, marvel over animatronic dinosaurs, and enjoy the two on-site adventure parks—younger children will love the gentle rides in Boj’s Giggly Park, while older kids can brave the rollercoasters in Adventure Theme Park for an extra fee. Make the most of your visit by staying overnight in one of the safari lodges or book admission tickets in advance to save time on the day.
