Borneo trip for zoo visitor
Youngsters visiting the Auckland Zoo these school holidays will have the chance to explore the world as part of the Intrepid Explorers adventure.
Zoo visitors can go to ‘‘Passport Control’’ on arrival to collect a passport and pencil then head off to traverse Africa, explore the New Zealand rainforest or go walkabout in Australia, South-East Asia and South America.
Participants will learn about the animals as they go and answer questions inside their passport by reading the signs along the way.
Those who collect all five passport stamps as they travel past the tigers, wallabies, hippos, kiwi and pygmy marmosets can return their completed passport to ‘‘Passport Control’’ to collect the final stamp and go in a prize draw.
The winner will receive an 11-day Intrepid family trip to Borneo, plus return flights for two adults and two children.
Explore the natural wonders of tropical Sabah, learn how orphaned orangutans are rehabilitated back into the wild, swim among colourful fish and spot wildlife in Borneo’s steamy jungles. Along the way, make friends with local villagers, try delicious cuisine and enjoy plenty of time to kick back and relax.
Intrepid Explorers is at the zoo until May 4.
