Safari Zoo, Dalton-in-Furness

(3.7/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Billed as one of the best conservation zoos in England, the wild inhabitants of Safari Zoo reside on 6.9 hectares (17 acres) of land designed to help them feel right at home. The highlight is the African section, which is split into different enclosures. A pair of pygmy hippopotamuses and a slue of mandrills occupy one. In another, you'll see white rhinoceroses, baboons, and giraffes. Hundreds of other species populate other enclosures spread throughout the park. Pay a visit to Maki Restaurant for a bite to eat, and grab a seat on the restaurant's deck for a view of the rhinos, giraffes, and baboons.
