This award-winning tree-top challenge set in the beautiful safari park in Woburn offers a wide range of adventurous activities for adults and older children, including High Rope Challenges, Zip Trekking, Forest Segway, and Zip Lining, among others.

Nestled in the beautiful Bedfordshire parklands, this 300-acre safari park is one of the best places to plan a family day out.
