Hi, I'm Nelson "The Animal Guy". I'm a federally licensed conservationistmaster falconer, wildlife exhibitor, and animal trainer. 
For over 25 years, my animal friends and I have appeared at countless events across the country providing wildlife encounters to people of all ages. 
Based in Michigan, I created Wildlife Safari in the early '90’s with my mission being to develop exciting hands-on, natural science programs that perfectly combine education and entertainment.
Over the years I've worked really hard to promote the concept of safe, fun, and positive interactions with living creatures. 
Together with my team of wildlife assistants, we are happy to work with you in creating the perfect wildlife experience for your function.

Just do it!

What an amazing show Nelson puts on! Entertaining for both kids and adults. There is a lot of emphasis on conservation and ethics. The animals seem to be well cared for, healthy and safe to get up close and personal with. If you’re on the fence about hiring Nelson’s wildlife safari, just do it!🐍🦅🦔
