The wolves are one of my favourites and I think I’m not the only one who finds them absolutely fascinating. The Natur und Umweltpark Güstrow regularly offers night-tours where you can hear them howling at the full moon while an expert tells you all about them. I know from friends and family that these guided tours are not only great fun, but also really interesting and educational at the same time and I can’t wait for Amy to be old enough to join us on one of them.
Amy loves animals and being outdoors so much and I was surprised that she didn’t get tired or wanted us to carry her, but I guess things just were too exciting for her. She raced from one enclosure to the other, waved each animal goodbye and had an absolute blast.
Even Ben got really excited at one point: He discovered his first toadstool in free nature. Pretty crazy seeing that he’s 33 years of age, but he’s just such a city boy that he’s never come across one of them before our trip to Germany. I actually thought he was having me at one point, but I do think he was really being serious.All in all, we had another fabulous day at the NUP and I just can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s a great place for families with young children and due its size it never gets crowded, which makes a refreshing change from traditional zoos.
If you want to check out what else the NUP has to offer, here’s the English version of their website. Tickets cost around £7 for adults and £3.50 for children from the age of 3-16. Webcams for some of the other animals can be found here.
