Our Drive Thru Safari is back! We’ve created a unique cars-only zoo experience. Begin your safari by winding your way through our lower parking lots as you meet some of our Education Ambassadors. These are animals that aren’t on exhibit and are typically only seen offsite in our Zoo-On-Wheels programs. Your safari route winds by the Elmwood Park Zoo arch where you’ll meet Noah the bald eagle. Your journey concludes in the top lot where you’ll be greeted by our three giraffes, Mokolo, Gerald and Dhoruba. Throughout your trip you’ll have access to audio recordings by our safari guide; he’ll be sharing info about all of the animals you are seeing. If you have any questions about our animals, a text line will put you in touch with one of our knowledgeable keepers!

FAQ

No, you will be driving through the zoo’s parking lot, which will be set up with many different stations to see all of our animal education ambassadors, from eagles to goats and sheep, but you’ll also get to stop and see our giant giraffes and zebra, too!

The drive through is just through our lot and to reduce on exhaust emissions, we ask each car to continue moving through the experience, while taking your time to enjoy the sights and listen to our educational content. Overall, it will take about 15-20 minutes!

As many as you like, following all state and federal driving laws!

We are asking all cars to continue to move as they drive through, so exiting your car at any time is strictly prohibited! You are however welcome to take as many pictures as you like from the comfort of your car!

The zoo is closed to the public, so there are no restrooms available for use on site. Please plan accordingly.
