Special 'Sunset Safari' in the heart of Hampshire
As part of their fundraising activities for 2006, a walking safari around Marwell Zoological Park has been arranged by the Mid Hampshire District Group of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 19th July.
The visit is open to anyone who has an interest in animal welfare and would like to see the magnificent animals during a quiet period after all the day-visitors have left. John Budden, Mid Hampshire District Group Treasurer commented:
"The early evening is very peaceful at Marwell, and having the park more or less to ourselves adds to the charm of the visit."
There will also be the opportunity to see the two newly created attractions - the "Heart of Africa" theme and the high-level viewing platform in the Giraffe enclosure. The tours will last for about two hours and will be led by experienced guides in a relaxed and informal manner. This will include a break in Marwell Hall, for refreshments, and an opportunity to talk with the guides.
If you are interested in this unusual visit, please contact John Budden - Tel: 02392 343731, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or Pam Mason at the CPRE office - 01962 843655, e-mail: email@example.com. Tickets will be £12.50, which includes a small donation to CPRE.
