Lions and Tigers and Bears – Oh My!

The past couple of weeks have been really difficult for me, so what better way to cheer myself up than a trip to the local safari park?!

I haven’t driven around one since I was a kid and there’s one super close to me in Milton Keynes. I’d decided earlier on in the week that I wanted to have a day out at the weekend, but I didn’t really know what there was to do around here.

Kane and I will have lived in Milton Keynes for one year in March. We have explored the area to an extent – shopped in the centre, been to Xscape, had nights out at Wonder World and Pink Punters in Bletchley, had an afternoon at the pubs in Stony Stratford – but we’d never been to Woburn before.

I’d heard it was lovely from people at work, so yesterday Kane and I went to the safari park in the morning, had a pub lunch on the high street and then went for a little walk. I really enjoyed exploring and it’s always nice to have a change of scenery.

It was very cold though so I made sure that I wrapped up warm when getting dressed for the day:

Floral Tee – Topshop

Denim Shorts – MOTO @ Topshop

Tartan Scarf – Primark

Black Tights – M&S

Grey Socks – Primark

Lace-Up Boots – New Look

Metallic Bag – Fossil

Woburn Safari Park was the highlight of the day – I’m like a big kid when it comes to animals.

There were wildebeests, which just reminded me of the stampede scene in the Lion King:




Bears, casually walking in the middle of the road:

Fierce-looking lions (hello Nala!):



And cheeky little monkeys:

These fellas were squabbling on the bonnet of my car:

And this one wouldn’t bloomin’ get off!

It was rather amusing.

I loved how close you could get to the animals – it makes it even more exciting. I was so snap happy with my camera, until the battery died halfway through (school boy error not fully charging it before I left the flat)!

Any way, it was a great day and I’m glad we went. Next stop – the zoo!
