I always thought that when I came to days out in and around London I was pretty clued up to most things due to my inability to stay and home and my want to discover new and different places with the children.
After a short train ride I was greeted at the station by the super friendly wildlife park driver that gave me a very informative trip to the park itself.
I actually couldn’t believe that this zoo had been here for so many years and it was the first time had ever heard of it.
A largest group of bloggers were all slowly gathering together over coffee and a chit chat before we headed out on our guided tour of the Big Cat Teritory.
On the way we passed a number of other animals such as the big camels and zebras to the smaller penguins and super cute meerkats that were a huge hit with everyone!
The zoo is famous for its big cats and I can see why as there are so many to see and not just the usual lions and tigers that you might expect. There were lessen known animals such as an ocelot and a beautiful snow leopard that was certainly my favourite.
It was now time for tea and the fantastic tearoom that had a huge glass frontage just perfect to spot the big cats over a yummy bite to eat.
For me this experience was a fantastic opportunity to really get up close to these beautiful creature but for the more daring there is also the opportunity to book a animal feed where you can get just about as close as possible to a lion or tiger and it really is something I would love to do.
I was really taken with Paradise Wildlife Park and all it has to offer, and with the addition of a newly opened adventure playground this is firmly on the top of my list for a visit over the summer holidays with the little ones.
