Additional Booking Notes
Safari Jeff carries all his own equipment he does not need anything. Custom caters to your needs from small - large events.
This event can be custom catered to your needs example: His regular larger events consist of him and his multi media displays on an exploration with live reptiles and videos of his team talking to him from a rainforest. This event lasts just under 30min then he brings out each creature one at a time for a closer encounter to the audience walking through the crowd. That can last another 30-45 min. Upon completion crowds tend to stick around asking questions about his adventures, asking for autographs and selfies etc.
Influences & Inspiration
Safari Jeff has had many influences in his early ventures into zoology as stated in his bio.
If this is a private small event whatever footprint you offer him to perform in he will do so. As for larger events of over 100 people in order for them to see him better we will need a stage (size depends on space allocated and size of crowd).
