On a fantastically sunny day in early September we headed out to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Our main intention was to see the newly installed polar bear, which we achieved, but we were thoroughly impressed with the Park as a whole. It had an excellent range of animals from lions and tigers, to zebras and meerkats and giraffes and capybaras. Viewing platforms were well positioned and actually being able to walk about amongst some of the animals like the wallabies, lemurs and squirrel monkeys was an unexpected treat. As ever when I blog about animal sanctuaries, I shall just leave a selection of photos here, but you’ll be able to find many more photos at my flickr here.

Since my final full day was so nice that I actually had to use the sunglasses I’d thankfully thought to pack, I decided to walk out to Laugardalur Valley and visit the zoo. It’s open all year round but I suspect that it’s a bit livelier in the summer than when I went.
