Whether you're a first-time traveler or a seasoned globe-trotter, the Saint Louis Zoo offers travel experiences that will take your breath away. Our expeditions will take you to places where you may experience first-hand much of the wildlife our Zoo is working to preserve and protect. You will learn about conservation efforts in these regions, and you will be escorted by a Zoo curator who will add his or her broad knowledge to your adventure.
Kenya Classic Safari
November 3-15, 2013
Join the Saint Louis Zoo's Curator of Herpetology and Aquatics Jeff Ettling on this Kenya Safari to see the Zoo's conservation projects first hand. In Nairobi, we'll meet with Action for Cheetahs in Kenya director Mary Wykstra who will personally brief us on the Zoo's contributions to saving cheetahs. In Samburu, Ettling will introduce you to the Zoo's efforts to save the incredibly rare and endangered Grevy's Zebra. The Zoo supports the Grevy's Zebra Trust whose staff will be on hand to discuss the conservation efforts to save this unique species.
During your safari throughout the wilds of Kenya, you will be introduced to the secrets of Africa, from its beautiful landscapes and sunsets, to animals and people whose lives have changed litt le over the centuries. Watch the gripping action of predator and prey. Relax at your camp as elephant, zebra, hippo and crocodile move in a delicate dance in the river. Learn the ways of the nomadic Maasai people who herd their cattle among the mighty beasts of the savannah. Luxurious accommodations, the famous parks and reserves of Samburu, Lake Nakuru and the Maasai Mara, mark you as another explorer whose footsteps someone else will follow.
