Fun at the Jo'burg Zoo with the So Funny Safari

If you are anything like us, I am sure you are looking for things to do with the kids over this holiday period... because lets face it, when they are home all day, you are likely to lose YOUR sanity.

We went on a blow-the-budget holiday in September, so, other than a two day mini-break that we had earlier this week, these holidays we will be around Jozi.  We have been planning to do a few day trips and one of the trips we planned to do this holiday was a trip to the Johannesburg Zoo

The zoo is always a great educational experience and Squish, at nearly two, is obsessed with animals so I think he will love the zoo now! I have just found out that there is even more reason to race over to the Johannesburg Zoo now!!!

From 18 December to 17 January, Boomerang (DSTV channel 302) are inviting families to visit the zoo and jump on the 'So Funny Safari' tractor. Boomerang is all about family entertainment and now they are moving the experience away from the television screen to the great outdoors, while promoting animal conservation.

So what can you expect if you hop on the tractor? I know my kids will be super excited by the tractor ride itself, but there is so much more to look forward to! As well as getting to see the furry creatures that always attract us to the zoo, they will also get to see some of their favourite cartoon characters such as Tom and Jerry, Garfield, Scooby-Doo, Pink Panther and the Tazmanian Devil.

Edu-training adventures will take off daily from the  'So Funny Safari' pick up zones at 10h00, 12h00 and 14h00 respectively. Visitors will head to six different enclosures where some of the zoo's favourite animals will be paired up with a Boomerang furry friend. This will also be a great learning experience as kids will get to learn some interesting facts about the chosen creatures. 

It sounds like fun, doesn't it? I know we will be headed that way soon (I will hopefully post some pics afterwards).
