As part of my birthday week celebrations (yes I make my birthday last a week), me and Lewis decided to go to West Midlands Safari Park. If we decide to go to a Zoo or Safari Park, we normally go to Whipsnade or Woburn, as we live really close but decided to go on a bit of an adventure this time and head here instead.
The Safari Park itself is absolutely huge, so big that we decided to go round twice because I didn't want to miss anything. The first journey round was packed, it was lunchtime, so the animals were hungry and everyone was stopping to feed them. You can buy animal food when you buy your tickets and feed some of the little treasures on the way round, which was amazing. Not the big cats or carnivores obviously unless you want to lose a limb. I ended up feeding Giraffes and Zebras, which was so lovely and even Lewis said he was surprised that I didn't cry with happiness as usual. *eye roll emoji*
It was so funny watching the Giraffes lean down to take the food, silly as it sounds you don't realise how tall they are!
I was a sucker for this little face and couldn't stop feeding him.
You can buy little pots of nectar for the birds to land and have a treat. I have a thing about things flying around me, so I left this one to Lewis!
Big Cats are my favourites and I was so excited at how close we got!
One of my other favourite areas of the park was the Land of the Dinosaurs. Me and Lewis were taking it all in and definitely a whole lot more excited than anyone else in the park. Sadly, I forgot to wear my Jurassic Park t-shirt which was a bit of a bummer.
The Dinosaurs were so realistic and this section of the park was so fun and quirky, the sound effects were just perfect too.
I also made a friend with a goat before he decided to chew my jacket, I don't think he wanted to be my friend anymore.
I would totally recommend going here if you ever fancy a day out. There is so much to do and there is even a theme park with rides too. The weather wasn't too great, so we didn't explore this too much, but it had a nice seaside feel to it.
We are definitely planning on going again, especially as you get a free return ticket too. ♥
