Our April day out saw us venture into the 600 acres in Dunstable that is home to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
A really fantastic day out was enjoyed by all as the families embraced their surroundings and made the most of everything that the zoo had to offer. The site offers many different levels of engagement with the animals, from a steam train trip through the fields where the likes of the rhino roam to more up close and personal areas of the venue like the petting farm. Accompanied by talks at various points of the day on the likes of the apes and penguins as but an example, the trip provided great educational engagement alongside fun and awe.
The team at Whipsnade also very much need a mention as they were fantastic with us throughout the day, making the visit easy and hugely enjoyable.
We would also like to take a moment to extend our thanks to the Cambridgeshire Community Funding team for helping make this trip possible.
