The park holds over 165 species of exotic animals, among other attractions such as a small theme park. The park contains the largest groups of white lions, cheetahs, hippopotami, and meerkats in the UK, as well as the largest lemur walk-through exhibit. It was also the first park in the UK to have the African big five game animals.
The park is a member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA). The dhole and cheetah enclosures in the drive-through safari are part of a larger heathland Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which the park is restoring.
In Worcestershire, you’ll find yourself in the African Plains, Wild Asia, Elephant Valley, or the Carnivores section, but regardless of where you are, exotic and interesting animals will roam all around you – in Elephant Valley, there is currently a new baby elephant named Satton, who is gaining 8-9 kg everyday!
Throughout the year, there are a number of events offered here in the West Midland Safari Park, some festive themed, some based around music, but you are guaranteed to find one that catches your interests.
There are more than just events, though – there is also an adventure theme park (open for over half the year) and an Ice Age themed area.
On a daily basis, there is the Discovery Trail, where you can check out some penguins, reptiles, arachnids, bats, sea creatures, and also sea lions at the Sea Lion Theatre!
Explore the African Village, where you can encounter lemurs and meerkats, as well as feed the Somali sheep, pygmy goats or Cameroon sheep.
