Going to the Zoo again

We love the zoo but haven't been there in 2 years. During the last Youth Day holiday, we went back to revisit our favorite animals.

The proboscis monkey always makes me smile

Otters are so adorable

"Sangia" she shouted
the French term for wild boar

The beautiful & oh so rare White Tiger

We took the Boat Safari but word of advice, skip it
There was nothing to see or do during the 20 min journey
The highlight was this piece of reptile skin they passed around

We used to skip the petting zoo cos we get to see these when we were back in France
but I thought we'd drop by to see the goats, rabbits & ponies

I didn't realise we could buy $10 ticket that will entitle you to all 3 rides
(carriage, pony & carousel) & ended up buying $6 each
Another tip cos the kids would want to do all 3

Riding lessons in the horizon you think ?

The ever popular Elephants at Work & Play

I love Zebras

& Giraffes

but our all time favorite is
The Fragile Forest

You get to be up close & personal with the animals
You never know what you are going to see round the corner

Note for next trip :

I need to plan better to time our visit with animal feedings. The Zoo website has a suggested itinerary.
