Visited here with my 2 teenagers to meet up with a friend & her children. I booked online which gives a discount from the entrance price (Adult £12.60 & Child (3-14) £9.90 each) The online booking is valid up to 30 days.
It was blustery & overcast on the day we visited so my advice would be to pack waterproofs since everything is outdoors.
There is a huge outdoor play area for kids to work off energy & lots of seats/picnic benches for grownups to wait patiently. There is a nice walk past some of the animal enclosures with good information on each exhibit. The boat trip to chimp island is interesting thanks to the skippers chat. There are pedalos available to go on, a flying fox (all free of charge) & back at the main parking area there is a fairground where you have to buy tokens for a ride (reasonably priced). The main wild animal reserve is great to drive through & see animals close up and great you are able to drive through as many times as you wish.
The smaller animal enclosures are lovely to walk around & our only disappointment of the day was the Pets Farm were not allowing you to feed any of the animals. This wasnt mentioned on any literature.
There are several eating areas to choose from (lovely fresh sugared donuts & pulled pork baguette both worthy of a mention!) but it was nice to escape to the restaurant out of the wind for a coffee & slice of traybake.
Finally, pay a visit to the Sea Lion Show. The animals are fantastic & really look like they are enjoying the experience. A great family day out!

We visited here as part of a group of 80 people- kids sports club day out.

it was fantastic.
We drove round the animal enclosures in two coaches- the lions were fantastic- one was a faily young cub and was full of mischief.
We took a picnic and there was barbecues to use as well.
Play areas were also very good.
Loved the sea lion show - cant smile wide enough!!
Animals were great.We had a mini sports day on the football pitch which was great.
Will be back!

Great day out had by my family. Get there early to beat the rush and make the most of all the park. The zip wire thrilled my kids the most but they enjoyed all the other attractions on offer.

Having not been here for a number of years I was very pleasantly surprised at the improvements that have been made to the park. The animals look well cared for and the new elephant enclosure was amazing. There is lots to see and do, boat visit to see the apes, pedalos, flying fox, playground, farm area, slides and a birds of prey demonstration to name just a few. There was a nice cafeteria as well as ample space for picnics and bbqs.

This is a great day out for young and old, you won't be disappointed!

Great day out at Blair Drummond Safari park, so many animals to see! Favourites of our kids included the tigers, big lion, eagle, giraffes and the sea lion show. There is lots of shows and talks at each animal enclosure. A great big park with a full size pirate ship full of activities. There is also a fairground full of rides. We had a great day out ! The safari was excellent getting up close to all the animals!
