Since 1966, Longleat has been home to a menagerie of exotic and exciting animals; in both the Safari Drive-Through and the Animal Discovery Area. Experience the majesty of Longleat’s animals moving freely across hundreds of acres of land; including zebra, giraffe, tigers, rhino, flamingo, and of course Longleat’s famous lions. Vehicles of all sizes are welcome through the Safari and, should you choose, the notorious Monkey Drive-Thru can be avoided using the purpose-built monkey bypass.
Visitors can explore and interact with animals in the Jungle Kingdom and Animal Adventure. Here you can find the UK’s first meerkat walkthrough, free-roaming penguins on Penguin Island and feeding opportunities in the rainbow lorikeets’ aviary. There is also a chance for visitors to enjoy hands-on encounters with snakes, tarantulas and other creepy crawlies!
