Get up close with some of the planet’s most amazing aquatic creatures at Penguin Island and Ray Bay. Take on the BBC Deadly Adventure at Longleat and test your mental and physical abilities in the Deadly Challenge, or embark upon the Deadly Safari and track down some of the world’s most incredible predators. Explore the Adventure Park; check out the sea lion escorted Jungle Cruise past Gorilla Colony, walk through Monkey Temple and much, much more.
There are several opportunities to feed the animals at Longleat from the sea lions on the Jungle Cruise, the deer in the Safari Park, the giraffes in the African Village and the rainbow lorikeets in Monkey Temple.*
Join in with celebrations at Longleat in 2016
In 2016 Longleat, home to the Marquis of Bath, celebrates the 50th Anniversary of its incredible Safari Park. The subject of the BBC’s Animal Park for many years, Longleat was the very first drive-through safari experience outside Africa. The 6th Marquis introduced lions to his private estate in 1966 – we now have over 1,000 animals which we will be celebrated during, what will be, an incredible year.
Join us over the Easter period when we mark our actual birthday with great fun shows, parades and brilliant activities.
In June 2016, the park will be playing host to Elton John for a concert to celebrate the Park’s anniversary.
Later in the year, sees a Balloon Festival (September) and The Festival of Light, our stunning Chinese Lantern Festival, returns for a third time to top off a year of celebrations fit for a king!
Longleat will also be celebrating the Chinese New Year of the Monkey in 2016 with celebrations kicking off from February Half Term. Visitors will also be able to see the new Monkey statue which will take pride of place in the macaque monkeys’ drive-through enclosure.
