In the jungle, the mighty jungle the Lion sleeps tonight. I saw the Lion (and many other Wild animals) at the Longleat Safari Park. I’ve never understood why we call wild animals beastly. For me, they are mighty and beautiful.
If you’re an outdoorsy person and nature lover like me then you should put Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, UK high up in your list. Opened in 1966, it is the first drive-through Safari Park outside Africa. Situated in the grounds of the stately Longleat House, the Park is home to over 500 animals. Spread over 9,000 acres of Wiltshire countryside the Safari Park gives you a great chance to get close (but not too close) with jungle king, queens and an army of other wild animals. The animals roam free whilst you are the caged one (your cars). With its undulating green, velvety roads and a sense of serenity everywhere; the place can calm even the busiest nerves. Longleat Safari Park has something for everyone from the main Park to the historical Longleat House to the unmissable Hedge Maze.
As our car passed through its various winding roads and I saw many wild animals; the realisation hit me that there can be no greater inspiration than wilderness itself.
