Review & Vlog : Longleat Safari Park

20th September 2016

Longleat are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, as part of their celebrations they invited us to go along as a family* for some roar-some adventures. Come on safari with us and go through the monkey enclosure, on an ocean cruise, through the lion den and much more!

The park is split into several sections, there are walk through attractions, train ride attractions, a river cruise and of course, the drive through safari. We started our day with food followed by the walk through attractions, ending with the drive through safari.

We managed to get up close and personal with a lot of animals, we even fed some! (tip, take pound coins with you as you can purchase animal feed for £1 in quite a few of the enclosures).

There were huge queues for the River Cruise for the majority of the day that we were there, please do not let this tempt you to skip it, the sea lions pretty much follow you all around the river and are so funny, especially when it comes to feeding time.

If you are brave you even have the option of holding certain animals, Spencer held two tarantulas but decided against the snakes. I on the other hand didn’t hold anything, not a chance!

We had a fantastic day and would definitely re-visit. Mine and Aria’s highlight was most definitely the monkey enclosure, if you don’t watch much of the vlog I urge you to watch that part, it was so funny, those monkeys really are little terrors!

Animals aside the gardens and play area are fantastic, there are so many beautiful places for picnics and, if you’re anything like me, photo ops.
