Anyone who follows Patchwork Cactus in Instagram knows that last weekend we were lucky enough to do a Zoofari at Taronga Westen Plains Zoo (Dubbo Zoo to anyone born before the 90's) and It was a total bucket list experience.
My parents joined us for the trip which was awesome - we all stayed overnight in the luxury Savannah View Lodges inside the actual zoo. Think private tours, an African inspired buffet dinner and breakfast, fluffy robes, the world's biggest bath - all in a tent that is actually nicer than any house I have ever lived in. Yeah, it was insane. Your veranda is about 4 meters from the Savannah where Giraffes, Zebra, Eland and the occasional kangaroo roam. The keepers kindly hang the feed from 'trees' right near you so the giraffes stay close. They sweetly left us binoculars in the tent, which were not needed at all. Like not even nearly.
