the UK's No. 1 safari just got even better

Opened in 1966, Longleat was the first ever Safari Park outside Africa. Your drive-through safari adventure will take you unbelievably close to creatures you’ve only dreamed about.  So mind the zebras crossing, give the rhinos right of way, watch out for the wolves and beware of the meddling monkeys.

Spectacular Views at the African Village

Look out across the East African Reserve where our magnificent Giraffe and Zebra graze, wander amongst the playful lemurs via a spectacular overhead bridge, tackle the baobab tree and rope bridge. Visit the Watering Hole cafe for refreshments before wandering through the African Traders shops. Plus, come face-to-face with a giraffe during May to September with our Giraffe feeding experiences.
