Sorry readers we have been so busy but have some great experiences to share with you!
Well one of us celebrated their birthday the other weekend so the other surprised them to a trip to Edinburgh zoo! One place we both haven’t visited before so we would love to tell you all about our adventures at the zoo.
Ever been to Edinburgh Zoo before? It is definitely worth a visit!
As the zoo is up a hill we decided to rush to the top and work our way down. This was a good idea because everyone started at the bottom by the entrance so we got to see the animals on our own. I would recommend doing this and if you need mobility assistance that’s also available!
The layout of the zoo is at the back there are the Big Cats, in the middle are Birds and Monkeys. To the left are more Monkeys, Giant Pandas and Penguins and at the front by the entrance are a variety from Pelicans to Meerkats. Above is the full map.
At the top of the map (top of the hill) there is a viewing point which shows some amazing views of Edinburgh. If you have a gorgeous clear day like us you can capture some fantastic photographs!
Our favourite animal to see was the Giant Pandas but they do spend most the day inside sleeping, we would in the cold February weather!
This cheeky guy below soon woke up when there was food placed in his room! Edinburgh zoo has a wide variety of Monkeys and it’s the animal we saw the most of.
Every day they run a Penguin parade at 14:15 if the Penguins are willing to participate. Unfortunately they all seemed too lazy and sunbathing to walk the parade the day we went.
Edinburgh zoo does have a wide range of animals but maybe only 1 or 2 of them and we did find many of the areas empty and no animals home. Also, the animal walkthrough which is where you can walk through the home of the breed with them (but always stick to the paths) which many of the animals were inside so we went through the Monkeys, Wallaby’s and the Lemur’s. Out of the 3 only the Wallaby’s were outside. Not sure if this was down to the fact we went in the cold February.
Other than this little bit of disappointment above we did really enjoy the day-trip and would visit again, in the summer next time! The weather was great for us which topped it off.
Thank you for reading and we would love to hear from you guys if you have visited before and hear your reviews and see your photographs!
