Due to the fire on January 27, 2023 we are closed to the public until further notice.

As of May 3, 2024, we are still closed to public visits at Urban Safari. We hope to reopen and have you visit in the summer. Keep an eye on our social media feeds (Facebook and Instagram) for updates.

Help us get over the finish line to restoring the reptile room by purchasing tickets in our 50/50 Draw running until June 28th. It’s a win for the animals and could be for you as well!

We continue to offer presentations for birthday parties, schools, summer camps etc. Our outreach programs have always served multiple purposes. Along with educating the public on the amazing animals in our care, the sessions provide much needed stimulation for the animals and many of them look forward to the shows.
