A while ago Cameron asked if we could go to a zoo, trying to keep costs down I went onto the Tesco clubcard website and found we had enough points for a free family visit to East midlands safari park, which also offered a free second visit later in the year. Bargain :) Knowing how long the vouchers sometimes take to come I ordered them then and there and put them away for when needed. As my Mum had booked this week off work, and my Dad hasn't found a job yet we decided to go. All things considered it was a good day but I wouldn't go again unless it was quieter.
The first half of the park you drive around with the animals roaming wild around you. The website said to allow 45 minutes for this drive through, yeah took over an hour and a half. By the end of it I'd have drove over one of the flipping animals to get out of there. There was SO much queuing, with windows up so the lions etc couldnt get at us which was fair enough but it was so hot the poor kids were melting and most of the time there was nothing to look at except fences. Cameron turned his ds on and played a few levels at one point.
There were good points though, the animals you were allowed to feed were a highlight. Cameron loved the giraffe.
