Welcome to Dorking's Summer Safari Trail!
This Summer Safari trail is a fun and educational experience where our participants can scan a QR code on a poster displayed in business windows to reveal answers to African wildlife-themed questions. The answers will then appear on their phones. Participants will also collect letters to form a simple, themed anagram. By submitting the anagram/answer via the LoyalFree app, participants will have an additional chance to win in our local prize draw.
The trail will run between the 11th and 28th of August.
The Summer Safari trail will feature a number of locations within the high street. Each location will host a poster with an educational question about African wildlife. As participants journey along the trail, they can use their smartphones to scan the QR codes on each poster and unveil the answers to deepen their knowledge of Africa's creatures.
Intrepid explorers will scan a QR code, revealing an answer will automatically be entered into a thrilling prize draw, with an opportunity to win one of these prizes:
- A wonderful hamper of gifts donated by The Born Free Foundation
- A JellyCat Soft Toy from The Lemon Tree
- £300 worth of vouchers to spend at Martha Russell Womenswear
This free trail is a fantastic opportunity to get families out and about this summer while getting children excited about learning and starting conversations about wildlife in other countries.
