Top Safari Parks UK
No doubt your little ones are spellbound by Disney’s The Lion Guard series. With the stunning Pride Lands and fun characters giving them a love for nature, it won’t be long before they want to experience the real deal. Whilst a trip to the Pride Lands may be unlikely, you can take the kids to one of the many amazing safari parks here in the UK.
At UKMums.TV, we think that a trip to a safari park is also one of the most fun trips you can make as a family. Children will absolutely love spotting real life versions of their favourite Lion Guard characters and parents will be amazed too! There’s nothing like seeing nature up close, especially when the animals are so fascinating and exotic.
