daytripper: Wingham Wildlife Park

Wingham Wildlife Park is a zoo I was lucky enough to go and visit with my work the other week. It is located in Canterbury, Kent and is open most days of the year.

The penguins were my favourite. Their enclosure was so lovely, you walked around a bridge way which surrounded their home & their swimming pool. I could not believe how close you could get to them, unlike many other zoos!

Spot the tortoises and capybara's!

The enclosures were all quite close together which was really lovely as we weren't traipsing around for hours trying to find everything. At lunch time we went for a talk, where they showed us all the animals, and I held a tarantula, mainly because the kids half my age were holding them, so I had to right?!

There were a lot of walk throughs such as the lemur walk through, and also peacocks and chickens were wandering around the zoo freely which was unique!  photo 2014-06-12023903_zpsf169eccb.jpg

Even though I went for free, Adult Tickets are £14, and I am already planning another trip back there this summer with the family, and this time I'll hopefully see my favourite animal, the red pandas! 
Which zoo is your favourite?

  1. Penguins! Lemurs! I do love a good zoo. I'm pretty fond of Bristol Zoo--you can walk amongst the lemurs, and get really close to the pygmy hippos and gorillas--plus there's a tunnel underneath the penguins so that you can watch them flying through the water!
