Thank you to the Los Angeles Zoo and the Safari Society for an evening of up close experiences with unique animals and an outdoor dinner BBQ.

See more from the 2016 Sunset Safari event in our video below.


What is the Safari Society?  The Zoo says:

Safari society donors are a sophisticated group who share a deep appreciation for wildlife, concern for animal welfare and for the preservation of biodiversity and natural habitats worldwide. Participants are offered docent-guided cart tours, VIP events, donor recognition and much more. This upper-level annual giving program is a mainstay of the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. The Safari Society allows donors at a range of giving levels to help advance the education and conservation programs, provide care to the animal and plant life exhibited here, and enhance the visitor experience.”

What was the best part of the night?

Wyatt said “My favorite part of the Sunset Safari was Taffy the Sugar glider!”

Gillian said “I really like the tarantula in my hand. It tickled and it felt cute.”

Sage said “I can’t stop thinking about that amazing scorpion glowing in the blacklight.  What a sight!  But maybe Elmo was my favorite, he was really a cute armadillo 🙂 ”
