Entry and Safari Park

We had booked our tickets online to take advantage of the discount and simply had to give a code at the barrier to receive a car load of goodies including our "passports" which allowed us to enter.We started at with the Safari Park which was busy but allowed a steady drive to view the wide variety of animals.


Beware the tiger !

We saw a tortoise, Wallabies, Ostriches, Pygmy Goats, Giraffe's, Zebra, Llamas, Camels, Flamingos, Rhinos, deer (which you can feed), Pelicans, a great tiger (see pic), 2 prides of lions, and wolves.

We were also brave enough to drive through the monkeys but there were so many cars they left ours alone this time!

Afterwards we parked near the house and walked to the many other attractions. First we had lunch. There was lots of choice but it was a little expensive.

The maze was great and and the railway too. Adventure castle was a bit crowded but the kids enjoyed the big slide once they had done it the first time. Pets corner too was good and we all held a tarantula spider - even me! Katy, our youngest is in the picture - she's the one with the fewer legs!
