Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.

Nor­mal zoo ad­mis­sion prices ap­ply. Go to auck­land­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
