2023 Trip to Africa

For the first time in over 13 years, the NEW Zoological Society is organizing a conservation trip to Africa, designed to connect Northeastern Wisconsin residents with wildlife and wild places.  In partnership with Sunset Family Travel and Globus Vacations, the Zoological Society has designed a 10-day deluxe tour through Tanzania, one of the top safari destinations in Africa.  The trip includes a tour through Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the spectacular Serengeti.  Guided excursions each day will connect guests with some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife, including zebra, lion, elephant, hippopotamus, giraffe, wildebeest, and more.  Over the 10 nights, guests will stay at five of Tanzania’s best lodges, enjoying relaxing accommodations immersed in nature.

Complementing the wildlife excursions, guests will be joined by select staff members from the NEW Zoo who will explain the Zoo’s conservation efforts in Africa, all of which are supported by funds generated through several annual conservation programs and zoo events.

Join the Zoo for an informational meeting on Wednesday, October 19 from 6pm to 7pm to meet and talk with representatives from the Zoological Society, Sunset Family Travel, and Globus to learn more about this exciting opportunity.  The meeting will take place in the Zoo’s Education & Conservation Center building and will also be available via a Zoom link (provided to you by contacting newzoosociety@gmail.com). Interested persons are encouraged to attend and should park in the main Zoo parking lot and follow the signs to enter through the back door of the Education Building – NOT through the Zoo’s main entrance building.
