If you know me then you would also know that a day spent at the zoo safari, is the perfect way to spend my birthday.
After a morning full of a yummy breakfast and present opening, my mum, K (my boyfriend) and I headed straight to the safari! Unfortunately my dad couldn’t come due to work, but that was okay because he was going to be back home later for the BBQ 😀
At the zoo my nan and Grandad met us there which was lovely!
We started off going around the drive through part of the zoo. Before we even entered there was zebras, giraffes, and another animal which I wasn’t sure what it was, walking right up to the cars and across the roads in front of us!
It was great to see the animals walking around you and getting on yours cars, but the only sad thing was, it was SOOO hot that the lions and tigers didn’t want to come out of their dens. Luckily I did still kind of get a photo of them…
But the monkeys were great which made up for it!
Once we finished driving around we parked up in the ‘Picnic Car park’, and well you guessed it.. we had a picnic! My absolute FAVEEEE thing to do 100% is picnics 🙂 So my mum was the cutest and made one for my birthday, full of the best sandwiches, snackkksss and more!
Next it was time to explore the ‘foot safari’ ☺️
First we came across a family of seals, seals with attitude too! I’m not sure if what they were doing meant something, or if they just wanted to sunbathe? But it was very interesting to watch. Even the baby seal popped up and I just about managed to get a photo of it, before the little one hid back behind its parents (I assume the bigger seals are it’s parents anyway haha) 😂
Next we saw the penguins! It was very smelly around them and they didn’t seem to want to move around. They stood very still and just starred at all of us… which was a tad disappointing, but I did enjoy getting to see them 😄
Around the corner from the penguins there we’re moreee monkeys, yay! There was these tiny monkeys that have yellow fur all around their feet. They we’re so cute! We was actually in their habitat with them. The monkeys were literally at your feet walking around with you, it was amazing 😆
There was another family of monkeys next door! One baby caught my eye in specific… He/she was so crazy, climbing and jumping up this one branch and hanging of it to fall back down, and repeat again and again! 😂
This was the best photo I could get ☺️ The little monkey wouldn’t stop moving about, and I thought this photo would always remind me of what was going on.
As we was leaving the monkeys home I saw one of my favourite animals in the distance… a goat! So of course I had to go straight over…
The two goats shown above where defo camera ready! They just sat looking around waiting for photos haha.
On the pathway walking around the goats home there was one goat resting of the floor getting plenty of attention… I went over to find that the goat was pregnant! I didn’t want to bug her too much, as it was hot and I bet it is horrible being pregnant in the heat we have been having lately, but I did need to get one photo. This is what I got… 😬😂
After too much time spent with the goats… we headed over to the last animal to see. At first we couldn’t find where the animal was hiding, but all of a sudden he popped his head out of his home and made his way outside to see everyone!
I love red panda’s SO much! Their tails are bushy and their colours are bright 😃 They slightly remind me of my old cat with they fluffiness and how gentle their step is as they walk.
As we was heading back to the car, me and K noticed the that there was little swan boats on the river that you pedal around yourself.. of course we had to have ago!
I had such a wonderful birthday at Woburn Safari! We ended the day with a few friends around for a BBQ and films night 😋
Have you ever been to Woburn before? I defo recommend!
