Situated on the grounds of an Elizabethan mansion, Longleat features a collection of over 500 animals, sheltered on 3,642 hectares (9,000 acres) of Wiltshire countryside. Opened in 1966, this site was the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. Unlike most other wildlife sanctuaries, at this location the animals roam freely, while the visitors stay within the comfort and safety of their cars. Drive through the park’s various reserves to observe wallabies, giraffes, camels, vultures, wildebeests, rhinos, elephants, pelicans, gorillas, tigers, lions, and Canadian wolves. The estate offers various special events and attractions, such as short cruises around the park’s lake, which houses a large family of sea lions. Check online for discounts and special offers.

Love, love, love this attraction!! Highly recommended! This was amazing! It was so much better than I expected. Leave a good 2hrs for the safari alone. Loads of animals, we got some amazing pictures, we bought the guide book which I would recommend doing if you are driving around yourselves. The park is huge and loads of shops and places to eat. We went before Christmas where they had the light shows and the light arches, cold but worth it! They even had snow for the kids. Leave a whole day to visit here, you will really need it. Great for adults and kids alike! X
Not many animals as expected. Still safari good. Peaceful place to drive through. Kids enjoyed. Maze is really good. We got lost in it for sometime 😃. There is a castle play area which is good. Splash pool is available. We went on hot air balloon event which is awesome. Some fireworks in the air. And music band is really good. My kid danced well for that music. A good place.
