I let the girls go off by themselves, so I was able to wander at my own pace and in my own direction! The elephants have to be my favourite animal, but these Colobus moneys were so much fun (although they look fairly miserable)

There were two baby baboons that kept the crowd amused most of the day, and I love the giraffes and the big cats … and DD1 showed me the meerkats that I’d somehow missed along the way …

There were other babies, too, including the rare black rhino – why is it we are so attracted to small creatures?
