Until further notice, Urban Safari is not offering Courses/Camps. We thank you for your patience while we get up and running again.

We are  looking for off-site options. Should you have any ideas, please contact us at [email protected].

All our courses and camps are immersive programs, giving children and teens the opportunity to learn more about rescued exotic animals in our one of a kind rescued animal program.

Whether they want to satisfy their innate curiosity or whether they are thinking about a career in animal conservation, they will have fun getting to know the quirky personalities of the animals in our care.

Be curious! There is so much to learn!


Hissing cockroaches are much more lovable than the usual pest cockroach and are a favourite at parties and presentations. In Madagascar, their native home, they are the composters as they eat all the fallen leaves and debris on the forest floor. Hissing is their way to huff and puff to scare off predators or to intimidate a rival cockroach for the attention of the females. Really, they are pushing air through small holes on their backs. Have you ever huffed out air in fear or frustration? Truth is, hissing cockroaches are all hiss and no bite. Most amazing of all, they can also survive almost anything, including losing their heads.
