Longleat Safari Park

Longleat Safari & Adventure Park in Wiltshire has been one of the UK’s best-loved attractions for over 60 years. It features an extensive Safari Park, is home to BBC Animal Park and CBBC Roar and also has over 15 fabulous attractions, including the new multi million pound Jungle Kingdom and Longleat House, one of the most stunning stately homes in Britain.

My parents managed to get tickets for 8 of us (my Mum, Dad, my two sisters, their partners and my husband and I) to visit the park by using their Tesco Clubcard points.

After everything that has happened lately, it was really nice to escape for the day and take a look at some amazing animals! Here are a few snaps from our day!

I enjoyed the whole day but my favourite part was the Butterfly House. I love butterflies, you walked into a hot greenhouse area and the butterflies were just flying around you. I even had some land on me! At one point I had three on me! You can also see two butterflies mating in one of the photos, amazing!

The other highlight of the day was that we managed to get on one of the last trips around the safari area and as you can see in the last two photos, the lions were sitting on a bank in the sun looking absolutely gorgeous!

I would definitely recommend a visit to Longleat if you're in the area. You can go through some of the enclosures in your car and we were really close to Rhinos, Lions and Tigers!

 Have you ever been to Longleat?

  4. I love the photos, they are so pretty! I went to Longleat about 3 years ago and loved it, I remember seeing a rhino get their head stuck in one of the gates haha. A really good zoo is Bristol Zoo, it doesn't have all of the "safari" animals but its got lots of smaller animals/insects!

  5. Fab pictures! The butterflies are so beautiful, I have to agree Butterfly houses are always one of my favourite parts of trips like this!

    I'm not sure if you've noticed but my blog button seems to be playing up, so I've done a new HTML.
    I'd love if you could replace my old button code with the new one that's on my blog sidebar, then hopefully it'll show up properly on your sidebar!

    Thanks Holly :) xx
