Who says the kids get to have all the fun? Join us for our adults-only Safari Camp programs at the Virginia Zoo! Meet animal ambassadors, venture behind the scenes, and  learn from our experts about conservation efforts at the Zoo and around the world. See camp listings for details on daily activities. We’ll see you at camp!
Adult Safari Camp is for participants aged 18+.

Adult Safari Camps run from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm daily. Check in starts at 9:15 am. Fee includes a Safari Camp t-shirt and Zoo admission following the program. The program includes a 30-minute lunch break. Participants may bring their own lunches or purchase food at our African Village Café or Beastro. All participants are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle. Closed-toe shoes are required for entering behind the scenes areas.

Adult Safari Camps are active programs. Daily activities incorporate walking through Zoo trails and standing for extended periods of time. Some activities may include bending or lifting. If you have concerns about whether Adult Safari Camp is a good fit for you, contact the Safari Camp Coordinator.
