After arriving back from Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa I felt a bit disappointed that I didn’t do the African Safari. After all, it is the home to all the big animals in the world, it is where the real touching vibe is most present. But I will go back in the future to make up for this.
I watched the Lion King to give me the sensations of my time in Africa. It’s absolutely amazing and I loved every moment of it. I got very emotional as I connected with what the magic of Africa – it literally is a different world.
A few weeks after being back I got taken to Woburn Safari on the outskirts of Luton. Not thinking much of it I went there with an open-mind not expecting anything too spectacular. How wrong I was.
I had one of the best days of my life! There was every animal there in their own open space – from giraffes to huge elephants, lions, zebras, all different birds and farm animals, sea-life penguins to sea lions, it was incredible.
We started off by doing the drive round safari part first and we ended up doing it twice it was that great. I was blown away, I felt like I was in Africa. We had to stop to let the giraffes cross the road, we got close to huge lions protecting it’s Hurd, there were dears running towards Woburn Abbey, monkeys absolutely everywhere and I was a completely made woman. Monkeys are by far my favourite animal, and they’re so funny! They jumped on our car and I had the chance to feed them, so I was more than satisfied.
After the drive around we walked and saw the other parts of the safari. We watched a sea-lion show which was fantastic and then a bird show which had beautiful parrots, owls, eagles and other interesting species.
To say that I was made up would be an understatement. I had an incredible, animal-filled day, which certainly made up for my missed-out safari in Africa.
I would recommend this safari park to anyone if you want a taste of African safari. You will feel what I feel, and probably be on a high for a very long time…
