Longleat opened in 1966 as the first drive-through safari park outside Africa, and is home to over 500 animals, including giraffes, monkeys, rhinos, lions, tigers and wolves!
There really is no better place to observe animals roaming wild in their natural habitat. There is also a gigantic maze and a seriously impressive adventure playground. According to many, Longleat provides the best day out in the West! Pupils complete themed and appropriate linguistic challenges.
