and only 15 minutes away from our house!
I really don't like animals being kept captive in zoos but at the safari park they live reasonably free in conditions similar to game reserves so I feel far happier to visit. The whole experience of being so close to so many wild animals was amazing and such a good day out.
Close your eyes now if you are squeamy.......
I'm pleased I don't have to clear up after these huge rhinos.... the mound below was enormous and each message was bigger than a huge turnip!!
Some animals were more inquisitive which was quite an experience for us.
The baboons provided so much entertainment and the little baby ones were so cute.
We did, however, opt for the safer outer perimeter route where they couldn't get at the car. We didn't fancy replacing windscreen wipers or wing mirrors but it was hilarious watching the brave folk who dared to risk it.
Travelling at snail pace meant we needn't belt up and the little 'un could be free to look at whichever side the animals roamed.
Simples! Well he didn't say it so I just had to!
I love the real meercats but just cannot stand the creepy ones in the well known TV adverts.
There are lots of amusements, rides, cafes and animal enclosures at the end of the safari ride and sealion shows throughout the day. All in all a great day out.
