The penguins proved rather elusive (I think it was bedtime!), and I was left wanting the super-zoom of my camera. I guess it's because I'm not used to taking photos on a phone, but these aren't great unfortunately. But uploading them direct to social media hardly seemed to dent the £10 Pay As You Go credit from Three* which was impressive.
But the cheetah proved a little keener to come to see us!
But on the subject of seeing animals up close, the giraffes were particularly impressive, and obviously very attached to their keeper who was with us. Giraffes have been one of Lara's favourite animals for a long time, and after this encounter she is even more in love!
