We visited on Monday with family what a day we had, we see many of the animals feeding and enjoying the lovely sunshine!! The tiger cubs were lovely to see the their parents.
The butterflies were amazing.
We stopped at the river kitchen cafe for a coffee break.

We had family visiting for the weekend, we decided on ZSL Whipsnade, some in the party weren’t keen because of the word ZOO which brought back memories of pacing animals and smLl enclosures, however thankfully we were pleasantly surprised ...we loved seeing the large enclosures with what seems to be happy animals..it’s Llangefni area and lots to see so give yourself plenty of time. The Cafe is very reasonable for coffee and snacks. Overall we had a lovely experience.
