Virtual field trips such as this safari, allow the students to experience different opportunities without having to actually BE there. Students need not travel far or wide to be exposed to new adventures and gain new understanding of topics they might once have only read about. It's engaging and fun for students to see things first hand and in 'REAL' time.
