Watching Wildlife with Kids

Viewing wildlife in its natural habitat is a great way to nurture a child's love for nature and create a knowledge of wild animals that goes beyond videos, books and trips to the zoo. While taking children to attractions such as Kilimanjaro Safari - a 20-minute 'ride' at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Florida complete with real gazelles, white rhino, crocodiles and hippos - is a start, their image is likely to be incomplete. Yet you need not travel halfway round the world to watch animals roam, observing wildlife in nearby park can be just as rewarding. What's more, a wildlife watching experience need not break the bank.
