Planning for school holidaysHere is the chance to go behind the 'off limits' areas of my favourite zoo,- ie the Werribee Open Range Zoo. The secret places at the zoo comes at no extra cost. In other words, admission for kids is free, and the schools' programs is free. Bookings are not required. Visitors get to access the African Wild Dogs, hippos. cheetah and monkeys. The secret places tour is available for limited time only.- so make a note of those dates. Saturday September 22 until Sunday October 7.
River of IslandsDestination Lake Mulwala on the River Murray. The area is dotted with islands and inlets that open up to a river system brimming with wildlife and river gums. The River of Islands is an eco-friendly houseboat positioned on our favourite river, Google River of Islands and then stand back to prepare for an affair with this six to eight berth experience.
Kruger ! Here we comeSouth Africa is once again becoming one of the most favoured holiday destinations of the world. Did you know that holders of an Australian passport need not apply for a visa prior to travel to South Africa ? Those South Africans make it so easy for we Ozzies. The big attraction has to be the Big Five: buffalo, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos. Go visit www.southafrica.net/fundi
Just imagine !Twelve nights across Russia and into Mongolia. Something most of us have considered and now its all become fact rather than fiction. Join the luxury Golden Eagle Trans Siberian Express,- a highlight of the 33-day escorted tour with Far Horizons. Do not miss this grand opportunity. The best advise I can give is to call 1800 083 141. The starting date for this tour is August 31, 2013.
