A safari in Denmark: Knuthenborg Safaripark

When you think safari, Denmark certainly isn’t the first place that comes to mind. Little did I know, the Knuthenborg Safaripark is just a 1.5 hour drive away from Copenhagen – where we could get up-close with animals like zebras, donkeys, even camels (protected by our car windows of course hahaha).

Our first day in sweden.

We’d just landed in Copenhagen, and rented a car to drive our way to Sweden, where we were going to spend the first 4 days of our trip. Always really intrigued and excited when I’m in a new country for the first time, and even more so when it’s at the start of the holiday!
