Woodcote Retirement Village Visit to Orana Park

A fun day was had recently at Orana Park by a group of residents who took great delight in being able to feed the Giraffes. Joyce found she was the centre of attention when Natalie the Giraffe wanted to 'whisper in her ear'! Betty enjoyed her close encounter when the 'gentle Natalie' wrapped her very large tongue around the tasty morsel of leaves that Betty held in her hand.

The weather was fine and clear and all aboard the Woodcote van were able to sit back and relax as they were driven around the Park to view the great variety of animals in their enclosures. They could leisurely step off the van and move closer to the animals if they so desired. Anne was thrilled when she found herself very close to where the Lions are fed. She said she had never been that close to such a large wild 'cat' before! 

Others enjoyed laughing at the antics of the various species of monkeys and lunch was lots of fun when being spied upon by the cheeky Meercats.
