West Midland Safari Park reviews
An excellent day out for all of the family. The staff were polite, grounds were clean and tidy and the attractions were better than expected; the highlights were feeding giraffes and the water rides.

Okay so firstly, we stayed in one of the Rhino lodges on a Friday night and then explored the Safari on the Saturday. This might have been a mistake as the safari trail has bottlenecks where you feed the Giraffe. It took us 2.5 hours to drive around because of this and over an hour of that is sitting in traffic in the middle of an almost empty field. I would advise to go on a weekday if you can. Regarding the lodge, lovely and modern, the build quality is brilliant. What you go there to see (the animals) are just amazing and being able to see the rhinos and even sometimes the Giraffe from our balcony’s is surreal. We even heard the lions roaring throughout the evening and early morning. However, I am giving four stars overall because the cleanliness was appalling, we found kids clothes stickers on the curtain, a rug was getting caught on a door so we pulled it back out of the way and found a surgical glove, hair clips, dust and dirt under the rug which obviously hasn’t been moved. There were stains on the bed sheets and to top it off, a bottle of champagne we ordered to be in the room for our celebration was not there when we arrived. They just need a little more refinement and once that happens, this place will be worth the money. As it’s so expensive, you expect everything to be perfect and pick-up on anything not quite right. Additionally, the drinks in the mini bar cost which I think something should be included for £700 a night for two people and the breakfast was a little simple and small. I want to end on a high as even after the complaints above, we still had an amazing time which is why the four starts are there.
Had a VIP visit booked last year & finally managed to do it this week. What an absolutely awesome experience. Rosie Wilkes was a lovely guide and gave us more than the experience we booked. 5*, thank you for an incredible day. Far surpassed what we expected. Feeding carnivores was much more than we expected. Highly recommended with lovely, professional personnel. Definitely an experience we would highly recommend.
