Blair Drummond safari park has a great range of animal experience days, and it’s one of the only places in Scotland where you can buy an elephant or rhino experience. It has plenty of other large animals too, so you can get close to tigers, giraffes and sea lions too.
The zoo if often overshadowed by the nearby(ish) Edinburgh zoo, but despite being a bit smaller, you can still get loads of experience days and the reviews we’ve heard are generally amazing.
How does it work?
You can’t book a date online, instead you’ll need to buy a voucher and then phone or email to book a slot. If you’ve got a certain day in mind it might be worth checking up that it’s available before you buy. You can call Margaret, the animal experience expert at Drummond on 01786 843101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Hi Margaret if you’re reading this!)
