Travel Program

Travel Program

Travel with experts from the Zoo and Zoological Society as you explore destinations closer to home and afar. The travel program includes several options:

One-Day Field Trips

These trips are planned in advance and occur three times per year. Popular destinations include other zoos and aquariums, festivals, and shopping. These one-day adventures are available to members and their guests. Transportation is usually by motor coach and travelers are escorted by Zoological Society staff who volunteer their time.

  • Members-only Field Trip to the Brookfield Zoo - Canceled

Check back for information regarding 2021 field trips.

Eco-tours and Safaris

These trips to exotic locations are usually longer and full of cultural and wildlife-themed adventures. They are led by experts from the Zoo and Society who can share their expertise with you and provide a whole new perspective on the adventures you encounter. Destinations are international and travel requirements vary by destination. These adventures usually include a pre-trip orientation with the host and a representative from the travel company. A thorough itinerary is provided.

Please check back for information on upcoming safaris and eco-tours. We will not be conducting a safari in 2020 due to the summer opening of the new hippos exhibit at the Zoo.
