Zoo Safari day for Cambridge City Division.
Last weekend, over 290 girls and Leaders from across Girlguiding Cambridge City Division travelled to Woburn Safari Park for an exciting day of animal adventures!
The Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and members of The Senior Section from over twenty different units travelled together to Woburn for their big day out. On arrival, the girls travelled around the safari park grounds by coach and enjoyed spotting rhinos, lions, tigers and giraffes. The coaches even went through the monkey enclosure, where the animals were jumping about on the coach roofs! After all joining together for a lunchtime picnic, the girls explored the rest of the park in groups, with a chance to see many more animals, including sea lions, penguins, lemurs and meerkats and enjoy other attractions such as the train and swan boats.
Emily Fisher, Leader of 26th Cambridge Rainbows said:“Our Rainbows had a brilliant time – they loved exploring the safari park and seeing lots of different animals. This was our Rainbow unit’s first-ever trip and we can’t wait for the next one!”
Girls from 2nd Cherry Hinton Guides also enjoyed the trip. Isabelle, aged 11, said: “I really enjoyed going to the zoo. My favourite animals were the birds and lemurs because you got to get really close to them.”
Twelve year-old Katie added: “The zoo safari trip was really cool and the zoo was full of Guides (and Rainbows and Brownies). The safari was exciting as there were monkeys jumping on the coach roof!”
Division Commissioner, Clare Lindsay, thanked all those involved in making the day such a success. She said: “Trips like this only happen thanks to the adult volunteers willing to help with planning and accompanying girls on the day – thank you the organising team and all the adults who came along to Woburn, who I’m sure had lots of fun themselves too!”
