I have twin brothers, Tim and Tom. They are very similar and a lot of people don't know which twin is twin. They both have blonde hair and blue eyes, and they always wear jeans and T-shirts. They like wearing the same things, and they like doing the same things too. For example, they both like pop music and they're crazy about football and computers. They go to a football match every Saturday. They'd like to play computer games every night, but our mother says they can't because they have a lot of homework. Although they are twins, they aren't the same in every way. For example, Tim works hard at school, but Tom doesn't. He's a bit lazy. Our mother is often away from home because she travels a lot in her job, so we all help in the house. Most of the time it's fine, but sometimes we fight a little! Although they are noisy and sometimes naughty, I think it's fun to have twin brothers.

A safari park is like a large zoo, where the animals live in natural conditions (естественные условия). There are several safari parks in Britain and they are very popular places for visit. One of the most famous is at Windsor, which is close to London airport.

You can visit some parts of the safari park on foot. Here you can see the animals that are not dangerous: giraffes, zebras, camels and antelopes. The animals walk around as if they were (как если бы они были в…) in Africa.

Safari parks also have lions, tigers, leopards and other dangerous animals. They cannot live with the other animals, because they would (они бы…) eat them. They would also eat the visitors, so they have to drive (поэтому им приходится ездить в машине) through the parts where these animals live. You must not (нельзя) open the windows and you must not get out of the car.

Safari parks are much better than zoos, because the animals do not live in small cages.

  2. What is the most famous safari park in Britain?

  3. What animals can you see there?
