If you read my last post about Centerparcs, then you will know that I headed to Longleat Safari Park with Kirsty, Abi and Bella and a great day it was!
When we got to the zoo, we all piled into my car to go through the Safari. If you’ve never been to Longleat before then before you drive through the Safari, you get the chance to park up and get our of your car to see the giraffes and a few other animals. When I went last year, I didn’t get the chance to feed them but this time we rolled up right on time to feed them breakfast which was amazing. I managed to get a cheeky little video of me feeding one! Giraffes are such beautiful animals!
Next we went to see some goats and then we walked with the lemurs. Check our this little guy posing and having the time of his life.
We then jumped back in the car to go around the Safari, I didn’t that many great photos as I was driving.
We drove past the giraffes and zebras first, then past the stunning flamingoes (which I have a slight obsession with right now), before we entered the monkey enclosure.
I stupidly forgot to take the aerial off of my car which the monkeys had so much fun with!
Next up were the rhinos which were insane and ostriches, camels and two different types of deer.
The best bit was next, all of the big cats! We saw tigers, lions and cheetahs. They are all so beautiful and they all looked so peaceful as we drove post!
The last part of the Safari were the wolves which again were so beautiful, we managed to get a close look at one of them before it lay back down again.
We got back to the zoo area and headed straight to get some lunch as we were starving! We took a wander and walked with the meerkats who were so cute! After we headed over to the cruise boat and took a tour round the lake. This is one of my favourite parts of the zoo. You get to see the sea lions, which are bigger than me!, two hippos lying at the edge of the lake, one of the world oldest gorillas who loves to watch Spongebob Squarepants and a few younger gorillas. You also get the chance to throw fish to sea lions but I passed on this one!
Also at the moment, there are dinosaur models that move every so often with sound effects, they were installed last month to go with the release of the Jurassic World movie. I’m a bit of a nerd and love all of this dinosaur stuff and I desperately want to see the film!
Luckily, walking through the dinosaurs led to Penguin Island and we were able to walk through part of their enclosure but we had to keep our distance as they can bite, which is more difficult than it sounds when they have backed you into a corner!
Unfortunately, after that we had to head home as the others had trains to catch and we all had long journeys ahead of us! It was the perfect end to the weekend and I’m so glad to have spent an extra few hours with these 3!
