Fun Things Online Like Games and Sports related Activities.

Breathe in. Breathe out. We are going to get through this. Our values are fun, freedom and community. Normally we are able to provide these amazing experiences in person, but with the Coronavirus and the mandate for quarantine or social distances this is not possible.

Our team has been brainstorming ways to still have fun experiences while in the safety of your own home. We have more ideas coming too (details coming soon)! Stay safe and have fun.

 "Walk" through some of the world's most prestigious cultural institutions, like The Met and The American Museum of Natural History, then go for a "ride" on Disney's new Frozen rollercoaster with the kids. And regardless of your age, we think everyone will enjoy some live footage of pandas playing at the zoo!

 African Wildlife Live Cam 

This camera at Mpala pans about 120 degrees, showing the watering hole (also known as the hippo pool), the fever trees alongside it and slightly upriver to Basking Beach. For more views of the same area, check out Explore's other animal cams like our safari cam or the ones posted at the watering hole or river.

Watch as animals come to drink and swim, and keep an eye on the acadia trees lining the riverbank-they are home to vervet monkeys, olive baboons, and many birds.
