Edinburgh Zoo

One of the things we definitely wanted to do on a recent trip to Scotland was visit Edinburgh Zoo. Naturally we were hoping to be able to see the pandas – a timed ticket for their enclosure is a must and is included in the main ticket price which is cheaper if booked in advance.  Thankfully we were rewarded in our planning by arriving just in time to see the male panda enjoying some bamboo before lying down for a sleep in the sunshine.

We were also lucky enough to meet this lovely baby tapir on its first day out, having only been born the week before.

Other favourites included the penguins,

the tiger who had a walkway above our heads which we’d not seen before,

this koala having a nap,

and the cute Kirk’s dik-dik.

Because the zoo is exceptionally hilly it also gives a commanding view of the area.
