Here are a few things some of our younger visitors said about their Safari adventure:
“ Our visit to the safari park was my best holiday ever. Best of all was when we got to go into the park with Frederic as he knew all the animals and how to get into their enclosures. I stroked a baby rhino. It felt very funny. Bambi the baby deer was my favorite. She was so friendly and came up to be stroked all the time. Frederic knew all the animals and we were the only ones in the park and got to see them really, really close, even the lions because he fed them bits of meat. When I grow up I want to be a vet or work in a safari park like Frederic “
Isabelle, 5

“My granddad says we can come again.  He liked the lions and tigers best but we liked feeding the animals.”
