Go wild and treat yourself to a trip to the zoo. There is more than one type of place to see animals. Zoos are becoming more out of fashion due to welfare and public opinion. Wildlife parks give animals larger enclosures in which to roam and have a more natural habitat. The only challenge is that you might not get to see the animals if they are hiding behind the shrubbery.
For a really wild experience, you can’t beat a safari holiday.
