The Denver Zoo is the most-visited cultural destination in Colorado, with almost 2 million annual visitors. From humble beginnings in 1896 as a simple enclosure in Denver’s City Park for the mayor’s orphaned black bear cub, it has since grown into a home to 4,100 residents of more than 600 species of animals. Since then, this Denver attraction has revolutionized how zoos connect with the public in 1918, featuring the first naturalistic enclosure of its kind in North America that allowed guests to see animals at eye-level in a natural habitat without apparent bars or fences. Today the zoo strives for sustainable conservation efforts and science education based in human and animal connections. The Denver Zoo is a nonprofit organization accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and dedicates over $2 million yearly to preservation and rescue programs in Denver and throughout the world.
While its convenient location in City Park grants visitors easy access to the zoo from practically anywhere in Denver, large groups and visitors from out of town should take care when traveling to the zoo. Coordinating ride arrangements and navigating unfamiliar streets can be stressful enough in small numbers, but with larger groups these stressors are amplified.
Streamline all your Denver-based travel plans with a custom bus rental that best suits your transportation needs. If you’re venturing to the zoo from within Denver, we recommend investing in an 18-passenger minibus rental or 25-passenger minibus. Due to their compact size yet spacious interior, this model is perfect for traversing traffic while still granting passengers plenty of elbow room. For large groups traveling long distances from cities like Salt Lake City or Albuquerque, a 56-passenger charter bus will likely be a better fit for your group. These full-sized motorcoaches offer a variety of amenities, from comfort items like reclining seats and extra legroom to entertainment options like WiFi and televisions. Whether you need a small shuttle, a large fleet, or any combination of services, National Charter Bus rentals guarantee your passengers’ comfort, no matter how long your zoo journey lasts.
Denver Zoo’s bus parking locations can vary depending on group type and time of year. More likely than not, your driver will need to enter the eastern parking lot through the designated Bus Entrance. During peak visiting season, from mid-April through May, field trip groups may check in and enter through the School Group Gate connected to this parking lot. Most other groups, however, must hike some distance from this lot to the front gate. To avoid the extra walk, arrange with your driver to drop you off at the main entrance. Your driver can look after personal belongings left on the bus and pick up your group at the front gate when your group is ready to leave. Book with a company like National Charter Bus, and you won’t have to worry about finding the perfect parking spot or navigation to the zoo. Instead, you can focus on the animal adventures ahead of you while we handle the rest.
The Denver Zoo offers plenty of hands-on educational programs, making it the perfect destination for school field trips, summer camp day trips, and other youth group excursions. From following zookeepers and veterinarians in daily work to summer camp-outs alongside the zoo’s resident orangutans, there are learning opportunities around every corner to appeal to any young animal enthusiast. The Denver Zoo asks large tour groups have at least one chaperone for every 10 children or teens throughout their visit, so consider these extra passengers when coordinating transportation for your trip.
While planning your students’ next adventure, secure their safety with private transportation serviced through National Charter Bus. The motorcoaches we charter are constantly renovated with the latest modern safety features, and you can trust that your personal driver is a certified professional with a spotless record. Drivers in our network must pass a series of background checks and training examinations, making them the most qualified candidates to safely transport your precious cargo anywhere in Denver.
