  • Longleat Safari Park

    Weather held off long enough for us to enjoy a great day out at Longleat. Car survived the monkey enclosure and snapped some phots I was happy with although I am becoming increasingly spooked by the clearly malevolent intelligence in the eyes of the monkey in the first shot!

    Just up the road, we may have to start visiting more frequently.

    I like the last one, looks like you just came upon it walking in the woods
    The parrot shot is made by the second one in the background adding the color

    Cheers

        Lovely set of pictures considering the overcast day. I particularly like the rhino standoff, who won?

        When we went there a couple of years ago the monkey enclosure was closed, I think they had a stock pile of wiper blades they needed to shift. Glad to hear your car survived.

          We ended up stuck in the lion enclosure for a while after the neighbouring pride got a bit restless. The cars were almost nose to tail so unable to get a better background unfortunately.

          The white rhinos were both chased off by a dominant dromedary which was quite funny until it looked as though the rhinos were being herded toward the cars!

          Definitely be going back soon.

            Some nice shots here and great potential for future visits.
