The origins of West Midland Safari & Leisure Park can be traced back to the 18th century and Spring Grove House, which still stands at the attraction, but the estate first opened as the safari park in 1973.

The park boasts 1,700 animal encounters along with some great family fun rides and attractions, all set in 200 acres of leafy Worcestershire.

There are four miles of self-drive safari, home to Realm of the Lions, as well as the largest group of cheetah in the UK, Indian rhino, critically endangered Sumatran tigers, giraffe, African wild dogs and elephants, and attractions to visit on foot such as Penguin Cove, Hippo Lake – home to one of the largest hippo pods in Europe, all-weather attractions like Twilight Cave, Mark O’Shea’s Reptile World, Creepy Crawlies and Sequarium, and, in the African Village, Meerkat Mayhem and Walking with Lemurs – the largest lemur walk-through in the UK.

Over 20 breeding programmes are in place and worldwide conservation projects have taken the park to Brazil, the Philippines and Namibia. A successful formal education programme includes keeper talks and walking safaris.
