    We visited South Lakes Safari Zoo near Dalton over the Easter weekend, it was busy with visitors and the weather was just lovely which brought all the animals out to enjoy the sunshine. The kids really enjoyed seeing the variety of animals, listening to the informative talks the zoo keepers gave throughout the day and feeding the giraffe’s and the lemurs was the highlight of their day. We ended our visit in the outdoor play area then in the shop. We were very impressed, much has been improved with the look and welfare of the zoo and its animals. Well done!
