Teaching is our passion, and it’s key to creating wildlife advocates.

Learning Through Hands-On Experience

Every year, more than 10,000 school children visit Safari West on Class Visits and Discover Africa Field Trips. Class Visits are available for schools that have a budget for field trips, and the Safari West Wildlife Foundation offers financial support through the Discover Africa Field Trip program for school classes that would otherwise be unable to attend.

Children can learn about animals from text books, but a lesson plan that includes real life, hands-on contact with the Safari West animals, completes the picture. Memories of the sights, sounds and smells of live African animals will stay with a youngster forever. Teaching is our passion, and it’s key to creating wildlife advocates.
