Feed the fluffy cygnets, giggle at the gorillas or take a loveable donkey out for a picnic.
There’s plenty of animal-themed activities to keep the kids occupied this summer in Dorset.
Visit the famous Abbotsbury Swans and their newly hatched arrivals, the only place in the world where you can see them nesting up close and help to hand feed them daily.
Enjoy the crazy antics of the residents at Dorset’s Monkey World and Ape Rescue Centre. It’s always a great family day out with the added fun of exciting adventure playgrounds for the little ones to burn off some energy.
For something totally unique this summer holiday, why not take a friendly donkey for a walk in Dorset’s breath taking countryside! Pack up a picnic and away you go (just don't forget to pop in a carrot for your new four-legged friend.)
