I hope you all had a lovely weekend,
I wanted to share with you a few photos from a wonderful evening on Saturday at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo for their Sunset Safari event.
If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my story and all the fun things I got up to. Sunset Safari is a one night only event, giving you the chance to enjoy the Zoo at dusk, see the animals in a different light and enjoy the lovely atmosphere. It’s such a unique event for any animal lover and a great way to spend some quality time with friends and family.
The highlights of the night included some live music and entertainment – stilt walkers, acrobats and fire and glow acts. You could also have a ride on the Safari Truck and Steam Train and enjoy a tour of the Zoo.
It was so nice watching the elephants on their daily walk around the park and seeing them grazing on the long grass, was lovely being so close to them. The giraffes were also very active and you can get really close to them in the viewing platform. The zoo is so different at night, the atmosphere is a lot more chilled and relaxing.
There was plenty of food, drink and ice creams for sale, you could even take your own picnic. Being such a foodie I really enjoyed getting a pizza from the base camp Pizzeria, it was absolutely delicious.
The entire event was brilliant and it was great to see so many people supporting it this year. It was a beautiful summer’s evening the atmosphere was warm and friendly. If you have never been to this event before it’s a must for next year. It’s also so nice to know the money raised is going to the conservation of animals which is amazing!
