Yorkshire Wildlife Park 2016

Back in May we made a return visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park (you can read about our first visit here). Then, as now, we found it to be an excellent day out and well worth the entrance fee. Since our last visit they had added some new animals which were a real highlight – three new polar bears to make four in total, plus some armadillos which we’d never seen before and which I had no idea moved quite so fast!

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.

Longleat Safari Park Part One: Safari

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.
