Santa’s Safari

December 8, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Santa's Safari at the Louisville Zoo - Storytime

Separate TICKET required for all attending (including infants)

Thanks for joining us in 2018! 

We look forward to sharing the holiday spirit with you in 2019!


2018 Overview

Santa is making a special stop by the Louisville Zoo and he’s bringing some of his North Pole friends along too. Enjoy a visit and photo with Santa plus meet Mrs. Claus and Frosty the Snowman. Be part of Santa’s workshop where elves help families create a wonderful holiday craft.  And of course, no visit would be complete without Mrs. Claus serving her famously delicious holiday treats and beverages (and hot chocolate or coffee for the grown-ups). Enjoy holiday sing-alongs and a complimentary photo with Santa for each child to take home.  Then grab your special Santa Safari passport and begin your journey through the Zoo’s heated buildings to experience one-on-one interaction with Zoo educators. Don’t forget to bring your cameras!
