We have been to Blair Drummond Safari Park countless times over the years, with and without children. Its a great day out for all the family and lots to do. On a full day visit we have never got round the whole park so it shows you will have a full days fun while visiting the park.
Blair Drummond Safari Park
Prices can vary each year but ticket prices are reasonable for the amount of stuff available in the park to do. The park is normally closed Nov to March so make sure you check to see if it is actually open before you go.
From Sea Lions to Monkeys there are lots of animals to see. There is also a Pets Farm with donkeys, rabbits, llamas etc. For any animal lover this is the place to be. It is also pretty much flat which always makes us go to the Safari Park instead of Edinburgh Zoo. The animal enclosures are all decent size and the animals are well looked after.
Food & Drinks
There are lots of picnic areas, and even a dedicated BBQ section of the park. If you didn’t want to bring your own food then there is a cafe, a restaurant, and a few refreshment areas dotted around the park. All reasonably priced.
There is a sea lion show which is on 3 or 4 times a day and also a birds of prey show (very interesting and never the same show when we have been) which is 4 times a day. There is a boat safari that takes you to chimps island (you don’t get off the boat though). You can also find pedal boats, a big play area with a pirate ship, a flying fox over the pedal boats…the list goes on! Its a jam packed day out. Not included in your ticket price is the funfair section and the face painting.
This is definitely a good day out for the family if you are heading to Scotland. Its in a good location and your kids will love it.
