An Adventure in Learning!

Experience a 90-minute educational safari led by one of our highly-trained naturalists. Alongside a highly-trained safari guide, you’ll encounter giraffes, primates, cheetahs, and birds from all over the world! Teachers, students, and chaperones split time between the lower grounds where exploration takes place on foot, and the open enclosures which can only be seen from aboard the Nairobi minibus or the expansive African Queen.

This educational excursion providing a conservation-focused exploration to the world of wildlife biology is sure to spark an interest in students of all ages. The curriculum undergoes constant refinement and revision to ensure it adheres to California State Science Content Standards.

Please note that all Safari West activities are conducted on a weather-permitting basis. If inclement weather precludes our ability to safely conduct any component of the field trip, we will attempt to substitute with educational activities led by our Research, Education and Conservation (REC) department staff in our indoor meeting space.

Safari West Field Trip excursions are available for school groups of 20 people or more and can accommodate groups up to 100 individuals.
