Get directions

By car

Woburn Safari Park is approximately one hour's drive from London, Oxford, Cambridge and Birmingham. Go Ape is situated within the Safari Park in the Leisure Area adjacent to the Australian Walkabout and Monkey Business.
Once entering the Park please follow directions for Go Ape and the Safari Lodge where visitor parking is available free of charge. Please allow a little extra time in your journey to make your way to Go Ape through the Safari Park, especially at weekends and bank holidays.

Make sure you allow enough time to get through the Safari Park and arrive with us on time at the Go Ape cabin - it's a bit of a way and please note dogs are not allowed in the park.

Lockers are available but don't forget to bring a few pennies.

By train

A vehicle is needed once arriving at the Safari Park to reach the Go Ape course so public transport is not recommended.

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla’s mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!)

Rated 5 Bananas Maxine - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 August 2014
Really great course - good to have different activity levels for when taking children with you. My partner and I enjoyed it thoroughly and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Rated 5 Bananas Gemma - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 August 2014
The kids loved the tarzan swings where there was a big drop!
Rated 4 Bananas Gieta - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 August 2014
Overall very exhilarating & thrilling experience. You soon overcome any fear of heights you might have. Definitely recommended to anyone who would love an overwhelming experience.
Rated 5 Bananas michelle - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 August 2014
  It was not clear that the entrance to go ape was through the safari park entrance so we queued up to be told that entrance was not permitted until 40 mins before the time of booking. The queue behind us were not happy about having to manouvere their cars to let us out again. We then had to wait in the car park. However having said that, I had to ammend our booking over the phone which was answered quickly and Connor the person who answered was fantastic and answered all of my queries. Steve at the site was very patient and addressed any queries about fears of heights and safety and was very attentive until we had got the hang of things. Giving us tips and advice when necessary. The whole experience was great, giving us time together as a family, which is a rarity. I have already recommended the experience to others.
Rated 5 Bananas Robert - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 August 2014
It was great. I was behind a family of 6 so the wait times were long. On the second Section I was approached by a worker and led to a further Section where I was the only one there which was excellent. I could go quickly, slowly and even take pictures. The Zips were the best. My first one on landing I ended up facing backwards and when I touched ground I plowed a trench 10 feet long on my back. It was hilarious. I got the hang of ending up facing front ways eventually. An excellent experience.
