What can you expect at Safari Camp?
A fun filled evening and overnight adventure. It takes place on Friday or Saturday nights. Expect to be outside in the Zoo the whole time, not just the tour, but your dinner, evening snack, breakfast and even the sleeping arrangements. You bring your own tents, camping gear, and set up your tent in a beautiful fenced in 1 acre area within the Zoo. The area is situated near some of the animal exhibits like our Monkeys and Tiger cubs, so you will have fun watching the animals from the safe and secure camping area. We do not provide food so please bring your picnic dinner and breakfast. All registered participants are free to explore the Zoo on your own after Safari Camp ends (about 11 am the next day).
What will we do?
Safari Camp is an overnight adventure that offers a more personal and intimate experience at Tiger World. Each camp out includes some fun filled activities including;
We will be going on a Twilight Tour after dinner and we will be learning about some of the nocturnal behaviors of the animals guided by one of our Animal Trainers.
We will sit around the campfire and share some stories and treats.
Encounter and Educational Lecture with some of our animals including a Tortoise, a Snake and if available one of our cubs.
Do not expect to touch a tiger.
Be awakened by the Roars of the Lions and different sounds of the Zoo, which is all part of the experience.
After we get up you will be guided on a Carnivore Feeding Safari Tour where you will get to see the feeding behaviors of the animals.
