SECTION 4

Now, I’ll just give you a few directions before you leave, especially for those of you who are feeling a bit hungry When you leave the main building, you come to an area where the path divides If you take the right-hand path, you’ll see the lake on your right, and exactly opposite the lake on your left is the gift shop . Apart from selling gifts, it sells snacks, sandwiches and light drinks.

If you walk on past the lake, on your right you’ll also see the penguins. Go past the penguins and you’ll come to the restaurant, also on your right . Don’t go too far, or you’ll come to the aquarium. The aquarium is on your right at the crossroad, and just over the crossroad, also on your right, is the lion enclosure .
If you’re thinking of having a picnic, the best place to go is the picnic area, and for this you need to turn left at the crossroad and walk along a few metres. At the end of the path, you’ll find the picnic area on your left .
Now, if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them and, once again, I really hope you enjoy your visit. Thank you.
