Travel Program

Travel with experts from the Zoo and Zoological Society as you explore destinations closer to home and afar. The travel program includes several options:

One-Day Field Trips - Check back for trips in 2018.

These trips are planned in advance and occur three times per year. Popular destinations include other zoos and aquariums, festivals, and shopping. These one-day adventures are available to members and their guests. Transportation is usually by motor coach and travelers are escorted by Zoological Society staff who volunteer their time.

Urban Safaris - Program currently on hold

An urban safari is designed for a long weekend or up to a week. Destinations include major cities. Visits to zoos and aquariums are a part of this trip, as well as cultural attractions in each given city. Trips are led by a Society or Zoo staff person and air travel is usually required for these destinations.

Eco-tours and Safaris - Program currently on hold

These trips to exotic locations are usually longer and full of cultural and wildlife-themed adventures. They are led by experts from the Zoo and Society who can share their expertise with you and provide a whole new perspective on the adventures you encounter. Destinations are international and travel requirements vary by destination. These adventures usually include a pre-trip orientation with the host and a representative from the travel company. A thorough itinerary is provided.
