Yesterday we braved Woburn Safari Park in a car without air conditioning. All I can advise you if you ever want to go there in the summer holidays is: spend more and get the VIP experience. Unfortunately, the general public is not capable of reading and adhering to the guidance the park gives. Every five meters you had a sign saying: “Do not leave the car” or “Close your windows” or “Drive in two lanes” or “Do not park on the side of the lane” and what do people do?????
Leave the car, keep windows open, drive in the middle of the road so no one can get by and, of course, park at the side so no one else can see the animals they are taking pictures of. It was a proper monkey business and the park keepers had to come along more than once to tell people off!
The VIP experience includes off road drive with park-issued cars so you can get close up to animals and you do not have to put up with the general public who just doesn’t care about the other visitors around them.
Sorry for this rant. I know this is less than wordless but I really had to get that out of my system :-).
So here are my favorite pictures of the monkey enclosure. There have been animals on the road so people could not just drive on. It was real fun especially the little one getting on our car 🙂
For all those who cannot see the slide show:
