Yesterday we spent the whole day at Longleat Safari Park with this beauty Zoe & her not so bad other half Alfie. It was actually Zoe's suggestion as she had already been and thoroughly recommended it. Although the weather started out quite wet & windy and by the end of the day we looked pretty bedraggled, we had an amazing time!
One of the coolest things we got to do was feed & pet the penguins who were so cute, even though some of them tried to bite! Emilia was not phased by them at all...she is pretty brave and they make a lot of noise when they're hungry!! We also fed some birds nectar which was a little bit scarier as they land all over you and at one point I think I had two nesting in my hair. Thank god nobody pooed, that's all I'll say!!
Another incredible part of the day was seeing these big cats up close & personal! We took a safari where you can drive right up to the animals and we heard sometimes they interact with the car/truck. Unfortunately when we went, all the monkeys were asleep and cuddling (so cute!) so we didn't get many interactions. But the tigers looked so beautiful!
Before going home we hung out for a bit in the playground where Eduardo & Emilia burned some energy prior to the long drive home! Eduardo was in his element, especially when he realised he was one of the only children left in the centre so he practically had the whole place to himself! Have you ever been to Longleat and if so what was your favourite bit? If not, which would be your favourite animal to see?! I think mine were the wolves...even though we didn't get very close to them they all remind me of our dogs and I want to cuddle them!!
