Why go on a Zoofari with the Calgary Zoo?

May 09, 2014

There are almost limitless travel options around the world today. Let the Calgary Zoo take care of things and make it easy for you to go to exotic destinations, experience the very best wildlife adventures and get the very best out of your journey.

Here are five reasons to join a Calgary Zoo Zoofari trip:

1. Support the zoo – a portion of the cost of each Zoofari trip is contributed to the Calgary Zoo Conservation Fund to support wildlife conservation at the zoo and around the world.

2. Don’t worry, be happy – let someone else take care of all the details for you. Destinations, lodging, guides, locations and more are all researched, vetted and arranged for you. You just have to pack (and we'll even show you how to do that), leave the rat race behind and go!

3. Experienced zoo hosts – a professional biologist, naturalist or educator from the Calgary Zoo hosts each Zoofari.  These hosts are well-travelled and will enrich your safari experience with their knowledge, friendly personalities and willingness to share inside stories from the Calgary Zoo.

4. Social aspect – travel with like-minded people.  Make new friends over shared meals and enjoy great conversations with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

5. Immerse yourself in nature – travel to the world's wildlife hot-spots, and knock one or two must-dos off your bucket list!
