West Midland Safari Park reviews
It’s quite nice to come when the weather isn’t so good as the animals are more lively!! There were no queues today making it easy to spend time viewing all the animals.

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.
Arrived 10am and went through the drive through straight away. Took around two hours and we purchased food for the animals. I would recommend you do, as we got to feed a giraffe, deer, antelopes and some birds. Such a good experience being up close to the animals. Be prepared as there aren't any toilets/places to stop going around. After the drive we went to the park and my daughter went on two rides. She was more interested in the park area and we spent some time there. Great day out with the family.
