Leaving Cardiff

We departed Cardiff youth hostel nice and early this morning after yet another full English breakfast.

Our journey to Longleat was uneventful but our time here definitely is!

Longleat adventures

We have fed sea lions from a boat, spotted a 55 yr old gorilla (110 years old in human years!) and learnt about different animals up close.

What’s that on your hand?!


Some where fluffy and cute, others were not.

AHHHH… He’s behind you…

Our vehicle safari awaits us after lunch but we have strict instructions to miss out the monkeys so the minibuses are not wrecked.

Our ETA at Ballard is 6pm.
