The World's Greatest Attractions... Live In Your Living Room!
It's easy to develop the dreaded 'cabin fever' when confined to the house for days on end; one can only watch so much Netflix! So to help you use this time more productively we've listed a number of virtual tours that allow you to 'walk' through some of the world's most prestigious cultural institutions, or even go for a 'ride' on Disney's new Frozen rollercoaster!
But for us nothing quite beats LIVE animals, which is why we love the Youtube feed from Wild Earth. Each day the ranger goes out looking for animals in South Africa's Sabi Sabi and takes you with them on the vehicle; they even answer your questions as they go - fascinating! The Sunrise Safari starts at 15:00 Sydney time, and the Sunset Safari at 00:30.
