Critterman Safari Guides

Animal Edutainment Critterman Safari Guides became the first
wildlife education outreach organization to be accredited in Texas
by the Zoological Association of America in 2014.


Our presenters have become known to our audiences as Safari Guides.
Through our Animal Ambassadors, we have made it our mission to
connect people to the natural world. Our teaching style is
“Touch the Heart, to Teach the Mind!


We have had the good fortune to work with:
 Jack Hanna of Animal Adventures
Jeff Corwin of The Corwin Experience
Steve Irwin of The Crocodile Hunter
Jim Fowler & Peter Gros of Wild Kingdom
Chris & Martin Kratt of Kratt’s Creatures, Zoboomafoo, & Be The Creature.
