Tommy Stringfellow, President and CEO of the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden, spoke the above words as he talked about his safari in Kenya in 2019. He added, “It’s hard to explain how you feel when you meet the very last two female northern white rhinos in the world other than how beautiful the mother and her calf are, yet how angry we were that it had gotten to this point. A memory and movement that I will cherish forever.”
Upcoming Zoo Safaris
Kenya Safari – June 25 to July 7, 2022
Registration is open: – Space is Limited
His memories of this precious encounter led Tommy to choose Kenya as the first destination for the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden’s travel program, a conservation travel partnership between the Zoo and Safari Professionals. And you can join Tommy when he returns to Kenya in 2022 to revisit the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the home of these two magnificent rhinos – and over 140 black rhinos. You will also explore two of Kenya’s most unique wildlife destinations: the Samburu National Game Reserve in northern Kenya and the Maasai Mara – the extension of the world-famous Serengeti that reaches into Kenya. And, as a bonus, there is an optional pre-safari visit to Amboseli National Park, which is renowned for its extraordinary elephant families.
Our Next Riverbanks Zoo Safari
Only twelve travelers will have the opportunity to travel with Tommy as he returns to Kenya. If an African safari is on your bucket list, this may be the perfect opportunity to realize your dream of Africa. And of course, a portion of net proceeds goes to fund valuable Riverbanks Zoo conservation projects.
Join us on our next Kenya Safari, June 25 – July 7, 2022
(Optional Amboseli extension June 22 – June 25)
