So off we went last Sunday and it was certainly a very full day! We managed to see most of it, take part in workshops (see the shadow puppet show in my previous post), have lunch and numerous ice creams and play in the children's fun areas, we didn't try any of the playgrounds but that was just lack of time.
Here are some of the highlights for us:
|The Okapi, is it a zebra? A horse? A small giraffe? The boys couldn't decide|
|The boys enjoyed the play areas set up for children throughout|
|The big cats, especially the tigers|
|The penguin beach, excellent! |
One of the best I've seen
|The giant Iguana the boys thought was a statue, then it moved!|
|The butterfly tunnel, it was wonderful, the boys loved the |
butterflies flying all around them, I was a bit nervous at
squashing one though...
|The bouncy castle!|
|The aquarium, especially the fish from the Finding Nemo film|
