The kids love the zoo and I love it too.
Auckland Zoo is huge! With toddlers the place seems ginormous and never ending. After a few trips I have made a note to spend more time in these areas just cause it is super cool.
Elephants! Who doesn’t love elephants? I love looking at elephants and their big fat butt with their super skinny tail. I also love that the elephant area is right beside the cafe where we can have some ice cream while ogling at these giants.
It’s a great place to get up close with the seals who frequently swim pass the viewing area and show off. When you walk to the top you can see some penguins and seals lounging under the sun.
There is just something about Meerkats. They don’t have to do anything and I find them funny. Hilarious even, most probably due to Lion King.
Check out their new “African Savannah” with a meerkat tunnel (we gotta go check this out!)
The Red Pandas are sooooo cuuuteeeeeeeeee and they just recently had cubs! This is reason enough to just sit there for hours with the kids (if the kids stay in one place for 10 minutes that is considered hours in their world).
The two times we have been to the zoo we have not been able to catch a sight of these magnificent animals.When spring comes we will most definitely need to do another visit and make sure we pick the right day and time to catch the Tigers.
*With this post it caps off my completion of Aprils #AtoZChallenge. It has been a fruitful effort as I got to meet new people and find some amazing blogs here. My theme for this challenge was to introduce readers to the people I love, the things we find joy in, issues that I find important and some random musings that I often participate in when I have some free time to just chill and exist.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them and I had a lot of fun reading yours and completing this challenge.
