Although it’s now pretty much turned to winter here in England (yes it’s still August) we did manage to squeeze in a few day trips and enjoy the sun while it lasted. A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I went to Longleat Safari and Adventure Park and to be honest I didn't expect it to be half as good as it was. Obviously the sun helped but the whole place was just stunning and peaceful.
I love animals so you can imagine my excitement every time I saw something that moved. I will warn you now there are a lot of animal pictures here but it’s nothing compared to the amount that I actually took!
Look how cute the lemurs are! I was kind of expecting them to be dancing around like in Madagascar but we rocked up at nap time, I just wanted to cuddle them all!
Next up were the monkeys, talk about cheeky. If there was something on your car that they could grab they would.
Yep this little guy is holding the valve where water comes out for your back windscreen!
As you can see they were not shy, they were practically in the car waiting to eat.
This elephant looked so sad, it was so hot he was throwing mud over himself to keep cool.
The big cats always look so majestic.
But I definitely wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of them, check out those teeth.
We got slightly nervous when about 15 of these guys walked passed the car. an inch closer and their horn would have been through the window!
Standard ice cream break.
This is a red panda, I'd never even heard of these before but they are so cute! Kind of a mix between a bear and a fox.
I was quite proud of this butterfly shot.
next up was a boat ride to feed the sea lions
and we finished with a walk with the penguins.
Phew. It was such a fantastic day and I cannot recommend this place enough. Have you been to Longleat?
