Ok so this is cheating slightly as this isn’t exactly in London. But it’s close enough! If i’n perfectly honest it’s not the best safari park near London, but it’s the closest.
I had a wonderful time, but thats down to the company 😉 the safari park however was not amazing. There were the main animals, lions, tigers (only 2), elephants, giraffes etc. However the park seemed a little run down.
It was a very hot sunny day so the animals were lazing about quite a bit, and it was pretty annoying when a safari jeep came and blocked our view of the only two tigers in the park.
I LOVED the giraffes the most. Perhaps because they’re my favourite animal but also because we got to be super close to them. They almost peered into the car!
There was a wonderful elephant show, where Damini the Asian elephant performed a range of tricks which I also loved. I did worry about how they were taught (animal cruelty and all that), but I was assured by my friend that they would care for the elephants and treat them well.
Overall, it was a fun day out but not entirely sure I would visit it again 🙂
