Fancy getting up close and personal to lions, snakes and camels? Chapultepec Zoo in Mexico City is a great day out for the whole family.
Rather than small enclosures and miserable-looking animals, it’s more like a mini safari park. Hippos laze around by the lake, giraffes huddle together seeking shade and tigers stretch out in the sun.
