During the April school holidays, Zoos SA is calling all intrepid travellers to take part in an around the world zoo experience. Children will be given special zoo passports and are invited to travel the world through its animal inhabitants, visiting a series of ‘border control’ checkpoints set up throughout the zoos.
At each checkpoint, the zoo’s little explorers will collect stamps for their passports and learn more about where our animals come from and how the zoo is helping preserve their wild cousins. Through their journey they’ll also enjoy additional keeper presentations, arts and craft activities as well as the chance to win some wild prizes.
For those bitten by the travel bug, fear not, unique passports have been created for each zoo. This gives families the opportunity to continue their expedition and learning adventure at both Adelaide and Monarto Zoos.
Here’s a special travel tip for eager explorers – purchase a Two Zoos Pass to receive 50% off the entry price of your visit to the second zoo.
Adelaide Zoo’s activity hub will be abuzz with free children’s activities from 11am – 1pm daily (excluding Saturdays). A self-service puzzle station and activity corner at Monarto’s Visitor Centre will be available daily.
Fun, travel themed arts and craft activities will be offered on weekdays whilst the zoo’s dedicated volunteer group will be teaching kids about the treats and toys they prepare for our zoo animals.
