Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park
Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park is situated approximately 4 miles from Stirling on the A84 heading towards Doune. Set in 120 acres of beautiful woodland, the Safari Park has many attractions and features to appeal to visitors of all ages.
In the drive through reserves you can get up close to camels, zebras, rhinos, ankole cattle, deer and not forgetting every ones favourite – the lions. The macaque drive thru reserve is now open but this is optional, however, they can also be seen from their house situated next to Pets’ Farm. Take a boat trip around Chimp Island, marvel at the skills of the sea lions as they perform at the daily shows which are also educational, entertaining and exciting. Visit the Bird of Prey Centre and then watch the awesome falconry displays when the falconers fly different birds at each show.
Wander through Lemur Land, Bug Land and Pets’ Farm and check out the elephant habitat with public viewing gallery. This is the only place in Scotland that you will find elephants or giraffes.
Don’t miss the Keeper Talks at the animal enclosures when you can find out much more about our animals and have the opportunity to ask questions – very popular!
There is a huge adventure playground with a fort, pirate ship and a sand pit, swings, slides and a net rope to climb- a chance for the kids to burn off excess energy and Mum & Dad to catch their breath or relax with a coffee or an ice cream. There is also a giant astraglide, pedal boats and a Flying Fox. All the above is included in the ticket price. Funfair rides and face painting incur a small, extra charge.
You can eat in the main restaurant or at one of the smaller outlets, use one of our BBQ’s or bring a picnic – there are numerous picnic tables and benches dotted all around the Safari Park. To round off your day don’t forget to visit the gift shop.
The Safari Park is “wheelchair friendly” with access to the viewing ramps for the lions, tigers, rhinos and elephant house. Unfortunately, the boat trip is unable to take wheelchairs.
Our Changing Places Toilet is a specialised facility which includes a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench and a tracking hoist system. It provides the equipment and space for people with profound learning disabilities and severely limited mobility to use the toilet safely and comfortably.
For visitors who arrive by public transport or on foot, the Safari Bus will take them around the drive through reserves at no extra charge.
Dogs/pets are not allowed into the Safari Park but kennels are provided free of charge.
