Travel with the Zoo

Experiencing nature inspires us to protect it!

The Houston Zoo’s Travel Program offers exciting and affordable opportunities to explore exotic destinations, observe wild creatures in their natural realms, and experience local cultures. Guided by local wildlife experts and experienced zoo staff, our travelers are immersed in wilderness landscapes and introduced to individuals who have taken on the task of safeguarding our planet’s precious biological diversity.

Our goal is to inspire through experience and education. So, please join us for a tour. It could very well turn out to be the adventure of a lifetime.
