Family Animal Encounter

From land to sea, countless animal adventures await your next family animal encounter! If you have nature-loving kids at home, why not consider taking a wildlife vacation for your next family trip? Between kid-friendly animal farms, family petting zoos, and amazing aquariums, wonderful wildlife encounters are available to visitors worldwide! Safaris are the most popular way to cover terrain during your exotic animal experience, whether it be domestically or internationally. Luckily, those in the United States have access to spots like Virginia Safari Park and the San Diego Zoo; both offer kids and adults alike a jam-packed getaway into the wild! For a more exotic wildlife vacation, however, jet off to countries like Tanzania for its Crater Highlands and Kenya for its integrated Giraffe Manor! Or, settle within the rugged jungles of Borneo, each experience offering a unique view on local wildlife and culture.

If the little ones prefer to explore by sea, then snorkeling is also a great way to navigate the depths of ocean life! Head to the Caribbean, the Galapagos Islands, or Bora Bora, to have an entire world right below your feet! No matter where you choose to take your next family animal encounter, we guarantee you’ll have as much fun as your children! Animal Encounters with families
