It’s hard to imagine that somewhere behind the tidy countryside below, lies a place where all these animals are to be found.  I was too lazy to walk around a zoo today, so we decided to drive around one instead.  I believe lazy zoos, aka Safari Parks, have been designed for parents.  All our food, drinks, toys and jackets are in the car with us as we drive around.  Nothing to carry in our hands but cameras – and nothing is too far to get to.  We spent the afternoon looking at animals and following a silly map with cartoons on it.

It was funny seeing camels in all that lush green.  Overall, we were happy with what we got to see.  This is England, it’s summer, so it was raining! But as I hear about the lingering dust in Kuwait, I’m not complaining!

I hope you enjoy my favourite photographs taken today at Wipsnade Zoo.  Larger versions are opened by clicking each image.
