Author's Review

The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is a small attraction with a BIG heart! I have to admit, that when I wrote my first edition of this book, this attraction really wasn’t on my radar, that’s how much of a hidden gem it is! But this time round, it didn’t evade my eagle eye! (Excuse the Pun) With Snow Leopards and the Meerkats stealing the show most of the time, it has to be said that the tropical hall really did steal my attention, especially the colony of leaf cutter ants which stole my attention for almost half and hour! You can spend as little or as long as you like here, but I would honestly allow a really good couple of hours to make sure you’ve seen everything and with a great little cafe, you could probably also add an hour on top of that to throw lunch into the equation.
