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
These trips are planned in advance and occur about three to four 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.
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
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.
