Rotem Volk | The Hidden Safari – Theatrical-miniature tour for kids ages 4-7
Did you know there is a secret safari right under your nose?
Rotem the Safari guide will wait for you at the meeting point. Every participant will receive a pair of binoculars and together we will discover all the little “animals” hiding in the most surprising places. Our journey will lead us through an elephant march, a hungry tribe of Giraffes and even a thrilling battle between a tiger and a zebra.
