FAQ:

Q: What if I can’t walk for very long?

A:  We try and accommodate all activity levels.  We provided door to truck service to limit the amount of walking.  Camp Aventura is an optional walk around area that can be utilized if decided by your group. There are several benches at this location if you need to take a break.   

Q:  What is Camp Aventura?

A:  Camp Aventura is a walk around animal area that is home to parrots, exotic reptiles, giant anteater, sloth and lots more.  This area is considered the half way mark of the tour and is in the middle of Safari.  This is where the giraffe feeding would take place.  We provide a short animal presentation so you can meet some of the animals up close.  This area does require some walking around.  If your group wants to walk around and you don’t we have plenty of seating to relax and enjoy being out in the middle of safari.  

Q: Do you provide lunch or can we bring our own?

A:  We encourage you to bring your own.  In the past groups have opted to bring their lunches/snacks or go out to lunch after the program is over.  If you are bringing your lunch you will have the opportunity to eat at Camp Aventura.  Please let Safari Programs team know what your group decides.       

Q: Are you wheelchair accessible?

A:  Yes. We have 2 trucks that can accommodate 2 wheelchairs per truck.  Unfortunately, we do not allow motorized scooters or wheelchairs.  We do have wheelchairs that you can transfer to if necessary.  Please inform us of anyone using a wheelchair so we can get the proper trucks ready. 

Q:  What happens in the event of bad weather?

A:  In the event of inclement weather we will work with your group to reschedule to a different date.     

Q: How should we get there?

A: We recommend a bus.  This way everyone is together and we can start the tour as soon as you are done checking in.  If a bus isn’t an option than as few cars as possible and make sure to give the names of the drivers to the Safari Programs Staff before you visit. 

Q:  How bumpy is the ride?

A:  The trucks do go off road to get closer to the animals, but our drivers do their best to make it a smooth ride.  The back row is bumpier than the rest so we recommend not sitting in that row. 

Q:  How many people can fit on each truck?

A:  ADA trucks seat 2 wheelchairs and 15 passengers. All other trucks seat 31 passengers (25 if not including the back row)

Q:  Are service animals allowed?

A:  For the safety of your service animal and the safety of our animals we do not allow service animals aboard the trucks or at Camp Aventura.
