Dinosaurs to set up nest in Kitwe - courtesy of Dinos Alive

Posted by David Ngenda on Wed 1 June, 2016

Get a taste of prehistoric life at the Dinos Alive exhibition, which is on its way to Kitwe and will be situated at the Copperbelt Commercial and Agricultural Show Grounds from 21 July until 11 September 2016.

 

The Dinos Alive exhibition is a time machine that will transport you back millions of years, to a time when dinosaurs reigned supreme. You’ll see some familiar faces in the crowd, including the Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex. The life-sized Tyrannosaurus Rex model, the only one of its kind in Africa, is built to scale and is a towering 7-metres tall, making for an unmissable spectacle. If you’re one up on the average dinosaur lover, you’ll also be able to spot more obscure names like the Spinosaurus and Ankylosaurus on show too.

 

The world-class exhibition kicked off at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town in December 2014, and has grown to feature 25 dinosaurs. The expo promises a variety of attractions and activities that the entire family can enjoy, such as an Apatosaurus ride, an excavation sand pit and a drawing table for the kids.

 

“Dinos Alive is a child’s wonderland, but it’s also a great educational opportunity,” says Etienne Schlechter, exhibition organiser and Director of ExpoAfrica. “We’ve got info boards up around the exhibition, explaining the different eras of the dinosaur. It’s important for us that people have fun – and learn something too.”

 

These realistic dinosaurs will make you feel like you have gone back in time thanks to their lifelike movements and textures, and the sounds they make too! So come and join in the family fun at the DinosAlive exhibition! Ticket prices are K65 for adults, K45 for kids and K30 for schools. Tickets can be bought at the door, on Computicket or at the Money Market counters in Shoprite stores. DinosAlive will be open Wednesday to Friday from 10:00 – 19:00.
