ZSL London Zoo
Founded in 1828, London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo and is today involved in progressive conservation programs to protect African elephants, black rhinos and many other species. At the zoo you’ll find a whole plethora of animals – over 750 species – and one very special family of silverback gorillas, led by Kumbuka and his mate Mjukuu.

We were one of the first to arrive and so we walked in as soon as it opened. It was a little cold but we saw soooo many animals! Including the Butterfly section which is just beautiful every time I visit. We were never bored! So many different animals to see! They have an animal for everyone. Whether you like axalotls or zebras, lions or giraffes. I think going that bit earlier was a good idea because we got to see certain animals on our own before more people arrived. We ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely/not expensive either. All in all SUCH a fab day :) will definitly be going back! Despite being worried I’d HATE it after reading bad reviews I loved it so much and so did my partner :)
