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 Shiona - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 September 2014
Booked Go Ape for a bit of family fun. My children had an amazing time and as we were walking out of the trail the youngest asked when we could do it again. Definitely recommend for the adventurous family!
Rated 5 Bananas Joe - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 September 2014
Go Ape was fantastic. We very much enjoyed having the freedom to go round the course at our own pace in our own groups.At first we thought we may be taken round as larger groups with an instructor, but the extra freedom and responsibility given to us just added to the whole experience as a personal challenge rather than a group exercise.Although the price was worth the single experience, it would now be quite expensive as we want to return multiple times!
Rated 5 Bananas Shaun - Tree Top Adventure, on 30 August 2014
Very exciting! exhilarating, unforgetable experience Excellent value for money! a new challenge! lots of highs no lows! and left on an absolute high.
Rated 5 Bananas Sarah - Tree Top Adventure, on 30 August 2014
Second visit to GoApe in a week! Tree top adventure is much better value than Segway - lasts 2.5 hours against 25 minutes for less money. The restrictions on age meant we had to send a very reluctant and nervous adult up into the trees which was not necessary when the children are so much more able and confident and can be coached easily by the adults from below or by fellow climbers; and especially if they have completed the course before! Think GoApe should consider altering this requirement - why not bring back the certificate as evidence that you have previously completed the course? Adult completed (with relief) but didn't enjoy - 17y and 15y olds absolutely loved it!
Rated 3 Bananas Helen - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 August 2014
There was no mention on the website that to get to Go Ape we would have to join the traffic that was going around the safari park. We were stuck for 20 minutes as there was no direct route to Go Ape. this is the most stupid system I have ever come across. This made us late and made me extremely stressed, especially when we had parked up there seemed to be zero signage, which left us running around like idiots. I am not impressed. When we eventually arrived at Go Ape there was no friendly welcome, just a member of staff eating. There was no enthusiasm. However things picked up slightly when we had the safety briefing, as this member of staff was better.
