We went to the ZSL London Zoo on a super hot bank holiday Monday yesterday and a lot of the animals seemed to be in hiding!
I was looking forward to seeing the gorillas, elephants, lions, tigers and giraffes, however I only saw the giraffes and gorillas because they have no elephants at ZSL London Zoo and the Tigers and Lions were relaxing in the shade so much so that I never even saw a Lion and I only saw a tiger for a moment before he hid away again.
However the Gorilla’s were amazing. Especially this guy here:
Near to the end before we were about to leave we decided to check out the Gorillas for one last time and we got to see them playing nicely together as a family.
It was my first time visiting ZSL London Zoo and although it was a good day out and a lovely Zoo, I think that I prefer my visit to Chester Zoo a few years ago because they had a lot more animals there.
The kids absolutely loved it though! It was a super hot day and so they needed lots to drink but other than that they were happily playing together as well as admiring and chatting away about all of the animals (my friend and her children came along too) so it was a fun day trip out/play date for all of us!
How much did I pay:
I ordered our tickets online a few days before:
• Adult ticket was £24.30 each
• Child ticket £18.00 each
• There was also the option to buy tickets at the door but those tickets cost slightly more
I think that if there had been a few more lions and tigers and I’d have seen some elephants then the experience would have been even better however it was still a fun day out!
Have you been to ZSL London Zoo before? What did you think of it?
