We missed the giraffes , but the new animals made up for it. they are modernising and improving the zoo , and there was more to see and it was easier and better set out . For me , the rides being gone was a bonus as the kids last time wanted to spend more time there than looking at the animals , not so this year. They did spend a bit of time at the playground , but it gave us a rest .
We got there before opening time and had pre-booked the tickets so went more or less straight in.
Let the pictures do the talking - well , mostly ,lol.
Meerkats + baby meerkats = super cute .
You get to walk around the aviary with the birds flying free and at set times of the day you can buy little pots of "nectar" to feed the birds with . It has to be the highlight of the day . Me and the kids all had a great time and went round twice with the food pots .
At one point , I had two perched on my head.
A fantastic day out which we all enjoyed , hope to go back in a few more years and see what else they have added .
After that , we enjoyed a couple of days at the coast , but no real pictures as that was my time to relax. No cooking , no picnics to prepare and no pots to do . Heaven !
Thanks for dropping by ,
