The virtual safari footage can be seen between 6 and 9 am CAT (sunrise dependent), and 3:30 and 6:30 pm CAT (sunset dependent), which translates to between 9 pm and 12 am, and 6:30 am to 9:30 am.

With so many video calling apps available, there’s no reason to hold off on your Friday night beer club.

If you or your friends don’t have any beer left in the fridge, don’t fret, order some from Elysian Brewing. The Seattle-based brewery is offering delivery and donating $5 from each order to the Seattle Hospitality Emergency Fund, which helps those all over Seattle who’ve been impacted by forced business closures and job loss.

Enjoy Disney rides and attractions

Disney has posted multiple videos to the Disney Parks YouTube channel to provide fans with a behind-the-scenes experience as they wait for the parks to reopen.

From announcing the new arrivals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to virtual tours of Walt Disney Imagineering to a front-row seat on some of the most coveted rides, the channel has something for any avid Disney lover.
