We have just visited Chester Zoo for the second time in the last year and I am sure it just gets better and better. Despite visiting just eight months ago, you can guarantee each trip will be different. One of my favourite things about this zoo is the animal enclosures, all of which are very generous in size and well designed to make them appear like the animal's natural habitat. The animals all appear content. The tigers were playing in the water when we visited, and we saw one pounce in to play with the other, which was great to see. The giant otters were also very playful - last time we visited we didn't see them so this was a treat. The elephants are always popular, as are the primates. We visited on a week day during term time, hoping to miss all the children, but unfortunately we didn't think of the end of year school trips! The zoo is so large though that there are still plenty of quieter places to escape to. I will also mention the gardens which are definitely worth a visit. We will definitely visit again (hopefully soon) and hopefully it will be third time lucky for seeing the spectacled bears which have so far eluded us. There was development work taking place while we were there and the new Islands development due to open in spring 2015 looks great - can't wait to visit that.
