Visit Edinburgh Zoo for a great day out!

As the summer is nearly upon us, trips suitable for the sunny weather ahead are playing on the minds of many people. Edinburgh is a magnificent city with many attractions. Family days out are easy to plan in the Scottish capital because there is so much to do! Edinburgh zoo is a favourite with kids and adults alike, giving visitors the opportunity to see the world’s most interesting animals.
Edinburgh Zoo is home to over 1,000 animals including giant pandas. Therefore, whatever part of the world you are interested in, there is opportunity to explore and learn about animals from that area. If you are interested in seeing the Giant Pandas featured in the Edinburgh Zoo experience, you will have to book tickets to reserve a place on the tour. These are free, but need to be booked in advance. Edinburgh Zoo is also the only zoo in the UK where you will be able to see koala bears. This is an opportunity any animal lover will grab with both hands. The Hilltop Safari is another great attraction of Edinburgh Zoo, this is an easy way to get around the zoo and is even complemented by the driver’s commentary as you travel up the hill. The Hilltop Safari is free and runs from 10 am until 3.15 pm. Although this fantastic feature is free of charge, the zoo is of course willing to accept donations for Edinburgh Zoo’s conservation fund. The safari cart holds 20 passengers, so there’s room for all your family and friends. You may even be lucky enough to see one of the extraordinary events or functions the zoo puts on; on Saturday 2nd June 2012 a photograph tour will take place where you will get the chance to see a zoo photographer get snaps of the animals in action.
