Monarto Zoo | a day at the zoo

Before the mid-semester break, the Buds and I woke up early on a Saturday and took the two hour bus trip out of the city to South Australia’s open-air zoo, Monarto (apparently the largest open-air zoo in the world!).

After fortifying ourselves with an early picnic lunch, we jumped on the first bus to take a look around the zoo. The easiest way to look at all the animals on exhibit is by hopping on and off the tour buses, they take you all the way around the zoo and into the animal enclosures. The bus also stops at viewing platforms, so you can get off and see the animals from a more stable position. There are a few walking trails, but we didn’t get to those this time round.

We did managed to catch a couple of keeper talks though, which were really good, mainly for the opportunity to see some of the animals closer up.
My favourites were the giraffes.
