Stevensville, ON (May 3, 2018) After a cold, long winter, Safari Niagara is ready to
open for another busy season, filled with excitement for all ages, on Saturday, May 12,
2018. The 2018 season will bring non-stop, exciting entertainment for the whole
family all season long!
New this season, Safari Niagara is happy to introduce De Brazza’s Monkeys and Red
Pandas to our family. The new Red Panda’s, Phoenix and Cassi, are an important part
of the Species Survival Plan (SSP). Although neither are in a breeding position,
sustaining non-breeding captive populations still plays a very important role in the
success of the overall plan. De Brazza’s Monkeys, Seamus, Doc Henderson and Hara,
join Safari Niagara from the Calgary Zoo.
Safari Niagara has eliminated their shows and tours schedule and has brought in
twelve new daily, educational Keeper Talks for the 2018 season. Visitors will learn
more about some of their favourite animals from the keepers who take care of them
on a daily basis. Keeper Talks will provide educational information about what is
required to care for the animals, share some unique animal personalities and provide
you with an intimate look on conservation.
After a successful introduction of Behind the Scenes tours during the 2017 season,
Safari Niagara is happy to announce that they will be bringing Behind the Scenes
Tours back for another year. Guests will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes
with their Giraffe, Rhino and Lion experience as well as become a Jr. Zookeeper
during their Jr. Zookeeper For a Day experience.
Safari Niagara invites you to meet their newest additions, view their Keeper Talks and
participate in their Behind the Scenes Tours when the season opens starting Saturday,
May 12, 2018. Along with new family members they are excited to announce the 2018
event line-up. This month’s upcoming events, offering something for everyone,
