Zoo Debrecen Opens New Exclusive Event Venue
Delivering on an announcement made during Night at the Zoo this August, Zoo Debrecen has opened its brand new Africa-themed event venue – Samburu Panorama Patio, paired with an event package, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Samburu Panorama Patio is located in a highlight spot right next to Hungary’s only reticulated giraffe family, so guests will get to meet Emma, Jabari, and Zahara up close and personal like never before.
Available for timeslots of up to three hours during and outside regular opening hours, the venue comes with a package that includes a true culinary journey with ambient music and a thematic behind-the-scenes guided tour in Hungarian or English, with optional extras to top off the experience like golf cart rental, a professional photoshoot or an Instax camera.
Thanks to an igloo built and equipped for comfortable temperatures year-round, a true four-season zoo setting is ensured for celebrations, corporate team-building activities, proposals, and any other private event.
According to the press release, Zoo Debrecen aims to raise awareness of the current plight of reticulated giraffes, residents in Debrecen since 2005, and offer targeted support to international conservation efforts. Reticulated giraffes are one of the rarest giraffe subspecies, now only found in the northeast corner of Africa including parts of Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya, with an over 50% decline in numbers in the past four decades.
One of their last safe havens remains in Kenya’s Samburu National Park – hence the name of the new venue, which is a true milestone in Zoo Debrecen’s efforts to play a more and more active in-situ conservation role in addition to ongoing ex-situ work as any Samburu experience package will include a donation to Giraffe Conservation Foundation, the world’s leading organization in saving giraffes.
