We visited Chester Zoo on our way home from Wales as none of us had been there before. We were very impressed. Opened in 1931 it’s one of the UK’s largest zoos and therefore does take a long time to go around and see everything, which is usually our general aim when we visit anything animal related. We saw some old favourites but also animals and birds we’d not seen before. One of my favourites was the jaguar, who just came into view as I was walking around the corner.

Africa Alive! is a wildlife park in Suffolk; purchased in 1991 it is part of the Zoological Society of East Anglia, along with its sister organisation Banham Zoo. They have around 1,000 species from Africa over 100 acres of parkland and we ended up spending the entire day there, finding much to explore from animals we were familiar with to those we were decidedly not.
On my birthday in May (yes, I’m that behind again!) I’d decided that I’d like to make a return trip to Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire. It had been at least a decade since I was there last and in that time the Park has undergone a lot of improvements, including the acquisition of some cheetahs, which are one of my favourite animals.
