He added: "Woburn Safari Park is taking every necessary precaution to safeguard the health and wellbeing of staff, visitors and animals. Protective measures include limiting ticket purchases to online only, managing the number of tickets available each day, and in turn ensuring a safe, workable number of cars in the Road Safari. Staff have been fully briefed and will be following the strictest health and safety standards including wearing appropriate PPE.

Visitors can enjoy seeing wild animals in wide open outdoor spaces, while respecting social distancing guidelines including having minimal contact

with people outside of their household.

Ticket prices will be reduced, as only the Road Safari will be open in the first week.

The Road Safari is a 90 minute drive-through adventure within 300 acres of parkland with amazing wildlife, taking people up close to some of the most beautiful and endangered animals on the planet including elephants, lions, tigers, rhinos, bears, giraffes, monkeys.

Visitors can spot the new arrivals born during lockdown. These include two adorable bear cubs and an alpaca baby.

Tickets can be purchased here from 9am on Saturday.
