Thursday was a full day out at Longleat Safari Park. We visited the African Village before driving round the safari park. We then boarded a boat and cruised up the lake past the Gorilla island followed by a walk round the zoo. Last of all we went to a show of deadly animals. This was run by the BBC Deadly team and we were fortunate to meet with the presenter at the end.
