A great day out for the kids is a trip to the Safari Park, set in an African-style savannah landscape and home to giraffe, camel, zebra and rhino, as well as some entertaining monkeys. Not to be missed are the daily lionp-taming shows, and the swimming pool and slide that offer a welcome respite after a day of game viewing.
