Get ready for a virtual adventure through the African savannah! Start with an educational video journey with stunning footage of your favorite creatures or switch to immersive 360 VR mode and get closer than ever before.

Afterward, you’ll transform your room into the Africa savannah by bringing holograms of lunging lions, ziggy zebras, enormous elephants, and seven other animals to life using your iPad or mobile phone. Get super close, analyze their anatomy, ‘touch’ them, and don’t forget to take awesome pictures!

Now that you’re on your feet, the next step is to get a birds-eye view of Africa! Go on a google earth scavenger hunt where you’ll explore water holes, famous national parks, and other landmarks, powered by live streams. But it doesn’t stop there! Tune your engines with digital workbooks that will have you speaking basic Swahili, expanding your safari vocabulary, and sharpening your short-term memory.

Understand like a global citizen as we break down Africa into bite-sized first principles covering geography, country profiles, local culture, languages, economics, and history for you to truly understand and empathize with a foreign world.

Throughout your entire journey, you’ll enjoy stunning photography provided by Christian Del Rosario, a professional UN wildlife photographer, and end with a short video from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to learn how you can help save baby elephants and rhinos.

Explorers are motivated to complete quests to collect badges and can earn gold to redeem a ZooCard, other souvenirs or save for their next virtual field trip.

Join us on a one-of-a-kind virtual field trip today! Perfect for grades K-3 and COVID-19 homeschoolers, included with a Zoptiks membership.

    There are quite a few mistakes in this product. My students just found another one in the crossword puzzle, number 2 down is incorrect. There are also quite a few typos in the comprehension piece.

    This is such a wonderful resource and I cannot wait to share the virtual field trips with all of my students. As soon as we return from spring break, I will share with the students. I have already started reviewing them and I am just so excited to be able to see the students faces once we are back both in-person and virtual. Thank you, for creating such an amazing resource that has me as the teacher excited to want to do the field trips on my own and as a teacher too.

    Perhaps it is meant only for K and 1, but it only gave very few usable passages for my second grader. I was very disappointed because of the cost of the bundle. It would have been beneficial to have additional previews before purchase.

    This product let me complete one of my favorite lessons digitally. The students were engaged and excited to learn. Next time I think I might have the students split into small groups and each complete a page then discuss what they learned as a group.

    This is an extremely fun and engaging activity. I did it over several days with my fourth graders. They were able to do the activities independently. If you purchase for younger students, you will need to guide them. The videos are extremely engaging and informational!

  24. Andy L. (verified owner)

    We have students in person with a camera rolling all day for students that are home. This meets the needs of every situation we have. Some parts, you can share your screen and do it together. Other parts, you can have the student go off on their own. Love it. Fantastic value.

    During distance education this provided a great motivating way for me to continue our Fun Friday virtually. The students always worked hard to complete all their assignments and get them turned in because they wanted to earn their \\\”ticket\\\” for the field trip.

    Third graders were able to do this on their own, with some assistance. Second graders needed a lot of assistance. But it was a great resource and the kids loved it.

    Some of the slides were too hard for my second graders, but it was easy to just delete slides I didn’t need and assign the ones that were relevant.

    Love the variety in the trips. Some content is a bit challenging for my second graders, however, I am able to edit and make any needed modifications to the prepared trips so that they are still as educational and enjoyable as independent activities. Thank you for all of your hard work on this resource. I love that there are premade Seesaw options!
