Paradise Wildlife Park



We were delighted to visit Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire over the weekend, we are fortunate to have previously visited when the boys were young so had very fond memories that we wanted to re-live.


 

Paradise Wildlife Park is home to an array of  animals, it also has a cool World Of Dinosaurs exhibit along with a cool children's play area for the younger children, On arrival we were given a map which gave al the details and animal inclosures along with the talks and feed time, it also has a list and location of all the amenities in the park.


We were really excited to visit the World Of Dinosaurs which homes some really cool life-size, animatronic roaring Dinosaurs they were really cool to watch we even took a few selfies on our way around, perfect for any Dinosaur fan young or old. 

 

We then headed into the Animal Park we had the most amazing afternoon exploring all of the animal inclosure from Lemurs, Penguins, gibbons and Tigers, my son really liked the small farm inclosure. We absolutely loved watching the Lions and got a marvellous view of them from the high walkway platform.


Paradise Wildlife Park is the perfect family day out, we had the most amazing day, I quite liked that we didn't have a huge trek to each enclosure, Paradise Park is the perfect size with plenty of picnic space, its also great if you have very young children as it has some amazing play areas. There is also a mini train ride around some of the park. It was great to re-visit Paradise Wildlife Park, I certainly wasn't disappointed and loved every minute of our day out, it brought back some great memories and gave us new ones, I would defiantly return again.

AMAZON ADVENTURE


Amazon Adventure brings an epic and inspirational true story of an unknown British explorer, set in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, In the BFI IMAX Odeon Theatre in London. Open to the public from 1st April, with special cast screening on 7th April, at London’s BFI IMAX attended by lead actor Calum Finlay, director Mike Slee and writer Wendy MacKeigan

The film follows the extraordinary journey of naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates - the most influential British scientist you’ve probably never heard of – who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his then-controversial theory of natural selection, the greatest scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest, accompanied for the first few years by his friend Alfred Wallace. AMAZON ADVENTURE is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into the fascinating world of animal mimicry, the astonishing phenomenon where one animal adopts the look of another, gaining an advantage to survive.

Filmed on location in London, Manchester, Charles Darwin’s Down House and the remote Brazilian rainforest, AMAZON ADVENTURE uses the IMAX format to immerse viewers into a wild world of breath-taking beauty and captivating animal behaviour. But things are not always as they seem in the jungle and audiences will be mesmerized by an array of nature’s masters of mimicry.


From the makers of the immensely popular and multiple award-winning film Flight of the Butterflies 3D, the film is directed by Britain’s own Mike Slee and executive produced by Jonathan Barker and Sean B. Carroll, starring Calum Finlay as Henry Bates, written by Wendy MacKeigan and Carl Knutson and shot by UK cinematographers Gerry Vasbenter and Richard Kirby, with an original score by Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto. Although filming in the Amazon was very challenging, the team constantly reminded themselves of what it must have been like for Bates, without any of the transportation and communication technologies available today.

AMAZON ADVENTURE, a spectacular IMAX/Giant Screen film from award-winning SK Films brings audiences on a visually stunning odyssey through the wilds of the Amazon rainforest in an incredible story of scientific discovery.
