I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I went for a day out to Monkey Forest in Trentham. I had been looking forward to this day all week; monkeys are my favourite animal! Once we excitedly arrived at the park, we were given a brief overview of the safety rules and were told that there were eleven newborn monkeys which got me even more excited! What's great about Monkey Forest is that you can see that all the monkeys are happy, free and live as they would in their natural habitats. I loved watching and observing every one of their characteristics and seeing how they communicate with one another from just a matter of feet away.
After we had walked around the park a few times and took hundreds of photos trying to capture a good shot of one of the baby monkeys, we headed over to the picnic area for a spot of lunch. Even with a light spell of rain, the picnic was perfect and ever so yummy. How cute are the monkey biscuits!!? After our picnic, we went to watch one of the talks which discussed the monkeys' endangerment, hierarchy, and what they like to eat. We also saw the monkeys being fed and one of the baby monkeys happened to be going around stealing all the food, so cute! Before leaving, we walked around the park a couple more times to take lots of photos and spot all the baby monkeys.
Before heading back home, we stopped at Trentham Shopping Village for a little look around the shops and to get ice-cream (strawberry and raspberry ripple with marshmallows- yummy). I had such a lovely, much needed day out and would love to go to Monkey Forest again very soon. I really want to do the breakfast with monkeys experience next time! Have you been to Monkey Forest before? What's your favourite animal?
