When the possibility of a safari holiday abroad is out of your family’s reach financially it is worth considering visiting some of the amazing safari parks that are available in the UK. Although you may feel that you are missing out on a once in a lifetime experience, visiting safari parks with a family is a safer and much cheaper option and you can often take advantage of special events when you can get closer to some of the animals and feed them under the supervision of a zoo keeper.
If you decide that this is an option that you would like to consider first locate the safari parks that are located in the UK and plan which you are going to visit and whether you will need to book accommodation for your stay. Some parks offer luxury accommodation on site giving you the feeling that you really are on safari.
The variety of animals that you can see in a UK safari park is vast and ranges from the big five, lions, elephants, leopards, rhino and buffalo to small animals such as meerkats and lemurs. It is also possible to see a wealth of exotic birds and reptiles on your visit.
One of the advantages of spending time at a safari park is that the majority offer play areas and rides for children so once your family have looked at all the animals the rest of your visit can be spent trying out the other amusements.
