Experiencey Top Tip
For our favourite this time, there is one final unusual experience to offer, an experience with a difference:
Yes, after a special Meet the animals, a glass of bubbly and a romantic proposal, your beloved is BOUND to say Yes, aren’t they?
Makes a change from the old ‘down on one knee in the restaurant’ job; and certainly beats a bunch of petrol-station flowers and a box of Turkish delight for romance. Your beloved would have to have a heart of stone to say No after you’ve sprung the surprise on what they thought was just an ordinary trip to the zoo!
In fact if you take advantage of this most special of romantic experiences, your ‘Beloved‘ becomes your ‘Intended‘ and you send us the video, we’d love to feature it here for you on this very site!
How’s about that for an Animal Experience to end them all??
