Strolling Safari Details
How does the Strolling Safari work?
A Strolling zookeeper will circulate among your guests with tame, touchable, live animals—giving your guests a memorable opportunity to meet these unique creatures up-close. Our animal expert will offer casual presentations on where the animals come from, what they eat, interesting behaviors, how they defend themselves, etc. Guests may ask questions, touch the animal or pose for a photo opportunity. We rotate our animals every 15 minutes to avoid stress and to give your guests an opportunity to meet other tame species.
Is it safe to touch the animals?
We teach your guests a safe way to touch the animals and we maintain control of the animals at all times—so everyone is perfectly safe. An FDA-approved hand sanitizer is provided for your guests to use after meeting the animals. We reserve the right to eliminate the touch portion or to not show the animals if your guests are disruptive or if they fail to follow the safety rules.
What kind of set-up do you need?
We conduct the program indoors—no mess involved. We no longer offer outdoor presentations. We just need a climate-controlled holding area where we may securely store the animals in carriers when not in use. We require that this area be lockable and not accessible by anyone other than Zooniversity® staff. We do request that you assign us an area as far away as possible from announcers, loudspeakers and other animal exhibitors. We would also greatly appreciate a reserved parking space close to the unloading area and near the presentation space.
How does the time scheduling work?
We will arrive at your location 15 minutes before start time to set-up for the program. Be sure to book us at the time you want us to START the exhibit. Please understand that we must stay on schedule, as we have other client commitments.
What is your payment process?
Deposits are not required from recognized businesses and organizations. Unless otherwise prearranged, payment in full is due upon arrival on the day of the event, prior to set-up, payable by cash, business check or money order.Personal checks will not be accepted from business clients. Payment by credit card is available with an additional a 3.5% convenience fee. Gratuities for the presenter are not required, but are gratefully accepted if you feel your presenter did an outstanding job or exceeded your expectations.
