Combo Encounter for Chris and Vanessa
It was really good to spend time with our two guests, Chris Lucas and Vanessa Smith earlier this week when they joined us for a “Combo Encounter” (feeding and spending close-up time with both the Penguins and Meerkats). Originally from Zimbabwe, Chris and Vanessa are both wildlife enthusiasts who had spotted our “Wildlife Encounters” on the internet. They seemed to enjoy every moment and were amazed at the wonderful experiences they’d had on the Isle of Wight. Vanessa asked me why I thought the Island wasn’t marketed into mainland UK more strongly … she reckons it knocks spots off going to Spain or Portugal, an Island with something for everyone – so many choices and great wildlife opportunities! We hope Vanessa may help to spread the word, and we look forward to welcoming them both back again when they’re next on the Island!
