    1 hour

    Grab a pair of night vision binoculars, and hop into the back of an open-air safari truck to experience the Safari Park’s multispecies habitats like never before. This unique guided safari will take you along the African tour path to view rhinos, flamingos, giraffes, and more—underneath a blanket of stars. Using night vision binoculars (provided) you can test your animal identification skills, and maybe even spot some local wildlife on your nighttime safari. You will also learn about some of the conservation programs that are helping animals in Africa and Southern California.

    This Safari takes place in the dark, and does not take you inside savanna habitats.
