Thank you for such a lovely day with our 3 grandchildren. The 3rd time we've visited. We don't normally visit zoo's but Linton is the exception. Having come away from other zoos feeling very sad and never wanting to repeat the experience, what a pleasure to come to Linton. The animals look so healthy and happy, and in such beautiful natural surroundings. The breeding programme throughout the zoo is very impressive. Wow! Home bred lions being sent to Uganda. Now, you can't better that, and it's a well known fact that unhappy animals do not reproduce. Perfect place to take little people, where they can be educated about so many endangered animals. Nice picnic areas with tables scattered around, where you can sit in comfort with your picnic, either in a shady corner, watching the animals or your little ones as they play in the childrens play area. Today the lions were having a really relaxing sleep in the shade of the tree, after spending the last 8 days mating !! Hopefully some more babies in the autumn.
