Over the gloriously sunny Early May Bank Holiday weekend I paid a trip to Stonebridge City Farm to see the lambs, but they also had some young calves and a seriously inquisitive cockerel.

Cotswold Wildlife Park

We only found out the Cotswold Wildlife Park was near where we were staying the day before we went, and we were very glad we did. The website advised to plan to take at least four hours to go around the 160 acres of parkland and we actually spent well over five hours there and even then we didn’t see everything.

Africa Alive!

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.

Iceland Part Thirteen: Reykjavik Family Park and Zoo

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.
