The new Lemur Loop at Marwell Zoo

Lemur Loop Marwell

Last night we were invited to the opening of the new Lemur Loop at Marwell Zoo.

One of our favourite recent additions to the zoo is the African Wilderness, their largest exhibit to date, which is home to the White Rhino, Zebra, Scimitar-Horned Oryx and Ostrich, which all… Continue Reading “The new Lemur Loop at Marwell Zoo”

All the fun of the fair at Folly Farm

An Autumn Day Out at Marwell Zoo

An Autumn Day Out at Marwell Zoo

My kids love the zoo and one of our favourites is Marwell Wildlife in Hampshire, just a 45 minutes from home. We haven’t visited for about 18 months so I promised the kids we would visit to see what had changed since we were there last……… it turns out an awful lots has changed, and for the better. The entrance is still the same with the penguins cheerily greeting you as you arrive alongside a small sea themed park to… Continue Reading “An Autumn Day Out at Marwell Zoo”
