A day at the ZSL London Zoo

After my second year exams, I went to London for a week and spent a few days being a tourist. As an animal lover I really wanted to go to the ZSL London Zoo.

The main reason I wanted to go there, was to see the baby tigers.

So woke up early, all excited like a 6 year old, to see all the animals. And due to let’s say lack of navigation skills, I ended up arriving at the zoo later than expected.

We started off by entering Africa. And what was the first animal I had the pleasure to meet? Well… a pygmy hippo (basically just a hippo, except smaller ;) ). 10382631_254636514743241_7009698956841822876_n

Then we got to see the giraffes being fed, which was so cool.

So we continued our day, seeing more animals. Familiar ones like gorillas and lions and also ones never seen or heard before.

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the birds at the zoo as well.

But my highlight of the day was going into the Butterfly paradise. It was so beautiful. Lots of butterflies flying around. It was a colourful and a very magical experience.

I did get to see a 7 day old baby sloth!!!

My overall day at the ZSL London Zoo was better than I expected and I would so love to go there again. :D ♡
