Hope all is well with you. The school Easter holidays flew by didn't they? We had some fabulous family days out. We stayed with grandparents in Somerset (we come as a package when we visit, including our two hamsters!)
A real highlight of our stay without a doubt, was the day trip to the world famous Longleat Safari and Adventure Park. Worth every penny -simply a brilliant time!
For my children, the monkey drive through was definitely the icing on the cake. If you have a nice car, which you want to keep intact, you'll be pleased to hear that the drive through with the monkeys is optional! A couple of monkeys clambered over our car and had a great time chewing our car aerial. We have the tooth marks as evidence!
However, we got off lightly (to the slight disappointment of my children) A car ahead of us had its aerial unscrewed and whisked away and another car had some of the trim removed!
We also drove among lions, giraffes, deer, tigers and rhinos – just fabulous to be up so close and personal. We moved on round and saw world famous Ann the elephant (pictured above), who of course has featured heavily in the news recently. She's adorable. My Mum loves elephants so I've printed off a pic for her.
After the drive we took a small train ride and saw Gorilla Island and then back to the main house for all the other attractions… including snake and tarantula handling! I highly, highly recommend a visit… but watch out for the monkeys!!!
Take care and see you soon
