The summer is here and the kids are probably already driving you up the wall! If you are looking for a way to keep them entertained why not consider taking them on a trip a safari park?
The summer is here and the good weather is out, but are you stuck for ideas on how to keep the kids entertained without breaking the bank? Here in the UK we have a number of zoos and safari parks that provide great entertainment for the kids. Read on to find out more about the zoos and safari parks that are worth visiting.
Knowsley Safari Park – Prescot, Merseyside

Longleat Safari Park – Longleat, Wiltshire

Woburn Safari Park – Woburn Park, Bedfordshire
With an animal encounter area, walk-through squirrel monkey exhibit and lake boats, Woburn Safari Park is a popular safari park that attracts visitors from across the UK. In addition to the attractions previously mentioned, the safari park also has a railway train, tree tops action trail, an indoor adventure ark and a gift shop. Animals on display include rhinos, tigers, zebras, giraffes, lions, wolves, black bears, camels, rhesus monkeys, ostriches and bison.
…cheap car insurance! Many of the safari parks in the UK offer you the chance to view animals in a car or coach whilst they are in their enclosures, a great alternative to viewing the animals through cages. Just make sure your policy is up to date – you don’t want any over-curious monkeys spoiling your day out by causing damage that you’re not insured for!

Federal Debt settlement program is an organization that offers debt relief and also educates debtors to manage their debts better. FDRS was formerly known as DBA Carefree Debt Inc. It closed down its shutters and started functioning again this time with a new name.
The company helps you to get rid of debts if you owe more than USD$10,000. The company offers free consultation for consumers. However, not everyone will qualify for their debt settlement program. You need to qualify for the debt termination programs offered by the company.
The company name is often misleading
The word Federal is often misleading and there are many consumers who consider it as a government agency. However, this isn’t true.
With the help of this debt relief company, you can get rid of your unsecured debts. Not all unsecured debts are included.
Why do some consumers complain about the company?
There are many consumers who criticize the manner in which Federal Debt Relief System functions. Given below are few instances when consumers have complained –
- The company claims that they work in tandem with attorneys to solve debt problems of debtors. But reports suggest that when a debtor wanted more information about how the attorneys help in the process of debt relief, the company failed to give any explanation.
- FDRS lays more stress on promoting their products and services rather than helping consumers with their debt problems.
- There are reports that the company avoids any kind of documentation and prefer verbal agreements instead
- There are complaints about Federal Debt Relief System charging fees before delivering their services
- If you have signed up for the company’s debt relief program and for some reason or the other you drop out of the program, you don’t receive any help as a “back-up program”.
- A debtor who had enrolled in the debt termination program was shocked when he was asked for the Social Security Number and other bank details.
Some of the instances mentioned above have played an instrumental role in placing the company in wrong books. However, there are other debt help companies that indulge in unethical activities but don’t come to the forefront. So, if you are planning to get rid of debts with professional assistance, check the company’s Reliability report and go through past records of the company.

When you are struggling to pay off your unpaid bills, you should hire a bill consolidation company. A bill consolidation company gives you a bill consolidation loan. With the help of a bill consolidation loan, you can easily pay off your several other bills. Basically, a bill consolidation loan consolidates your unpaid bills into one loan.
