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.

Feedback from Woburn Safari Park

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 Sam - Tree Top Adventure, on 15 April 2014
So much fun but I do think they could have spring back ends on the zip wires as it's incredibly difficult to stop and you end up in a pile of wet bark, which gets inside your clothes, hood etc. That made the experience a little less pleasant for me and I began to get sick of it. Other than that, it was great fun!
Rated 5 Bananas Jo - Tree Top Adventure, on 11 April 2014
Absolutely brilliant! Was a bit apprehensive at the start but thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go again!
Rated 5 Bananas Lucy - Tree Top Adventure, on 10 April 2014
Loved the zipwires and tarzan swings especially. Really liked how you could take your time going around the course and you were still able to be really sociable whilst doing it. I thought the difficulty was good too. At times I felt challenged but it wasn't too much - I was never too scared so that I wasn't enjoying myself. I felt safe at all times as well seeing as our safety brief was very good and there was always an instructor around whilst you were on the course.

The zip wires
Rated 5 Bananas Kimberley - Tree Top Adventure, on 9 April 2014
Amazing location, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful to be allowed to do the course at your own pace and have the security of knowing a member of staff is around in the forest to help you if you needed it. Course layout was great (signage could be better for non-participants) and being given the option of an easier route for the less brave was good although it meant my son could feel very brave in doing the more challenging route. Excellent number of zip wires as this is my family's favourite bit. Also we added the tickets for the Safari Park to enjoy a full day out and the discounted tickets made it excellent value for money.
