Explore the Wild with Audubon Nature Institute

Kenya’s “Kingdom of Lions” and the Giraffe of Samburu National Reserve

Join Audubon Nature Institute on the adventure of a lifetime to experience nature at its wildest in Kenya. From June 6 to June 16, 2020, explore the wild and see firsthand the important role that conservation programs have in Kenyan communities.

Visit exotic destinations, observe wildlife in their native habitats, and experience local cultures. Local wildlife naturalists and an Audubon Nature Institute expert will guide travelers on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A portion of travel dollars will directly support Audubon’s worldwide conservation efforts saving lion and giraffe populations.

Attendees will travel to Kenya — including Nairobi, Samburu Reserve, Mount Kenya, Lake Nakuru National Park, and the Maasai Mara — on this safari adventure.

Audubon Nature Institute is committed to protecting and preserving wildlife around the globe for future generations. For each guest traveling with Audubon, $50 will be donated to the Reticulated Giraffe Project.

“The threats that giraffe are facing have caused their wild populations to drop by 40% in recent years,” said Audubon Zoo General Curator Joel Hamilton. “An African safari would not be the same without seeing giraffe. The chance to visit Samburu and Maasai Mara to see the results of giraffe conservation efforts first-hand is an opportunity of a lifetime.”

There will be a travel night, complimentary and open to the public, at Audubon Zoo in Nims Meeting Room during the upcoming Associations of Zoos and Aquariums and International Marine Animal Trainer’s Association Annual Conference on September 12, 2019 to answer questions about the program. Please RSVP to give@auduboninstitute.org or (504) 861-5107.
