Giraffes and rhinos

Unlike most zoo environments, one of the amazing things about the Wild Animal Park is being able to see several animals living together in a large open space. In this photo to the left under the tree there are two rhinos taking a rest. A train ride takes a tour around the whole park or you can take a long hike and get a closer look at the animals. They also offer camp-style sleepovers throughout the year. Can you imagine hearing a roar in the middle of the night right outside your tent?

That train ride is really worth doing. I admire the guides whose job it is to point out beasties -- their patter can't be just a routine, learnt speech akin to, say, a guide on a tourist boat on the Seine. They can never predict exactly what animals will be visible.
