On Sunday, my Fiance and I took a trip to the West Midlands Safari Park. Even though there was a few bursts of rain, we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We left the house at 9AM and were there for just after 10AM, there was a few other cars in front of us so we didn’t have to wait too long to get through the ticket booths. I love how the park is split into two, one half where its a safari with animals that you can get up close with and the other half where you can wander round and see more animals.
Firstly, you drive through the safari and get to see so many amazing animals! What made me laugh the most is that because it had rained, some animals decided to lick the droplets off my Fiance’s car, to which he was left with great big slobber marks on his windows!
Once we had gone through the safari we then went into the main park and wandered through the twilight zone which still makes me nervous. I was clinging the Mike the whole time. but luckily the bats appeared to be sleeping as we could just about see them hanging upside down on the branches. Once we got out of there, via the creepy crawlies and the aquarium, we made it just in time to see the talk outside where a lady had a super cute fluffy chinchilla.
After saying hello to that little cutie, we wandered around the parakeet enclosure which I had never seen before so were eager to have a look round. It was quite unnerving having birds flying around but it was nice to get up close to them and see all their vibrant colours.
We still had a bit of time after seeing these folks before the Sea Lion talk so we had a walk through the Land of the Living Dinosaurs which is a new attraction and my word it was amazing! They had definitely gone to a lot of effort to make this new attraction spectacular. It is full of anamatronic dinosaurs and they look so realistic. With the added sound effects, you feel like you have stepped back in time!
Part of this looked to be under construction while we were there so I am not sure if they are planning to expand this soon but I will most definitely be back again! There was so many animals there to see it was amazing and is 100% worth a trip there!
