JUNGLE-JUNGLE MEETS CONCRETE JUNGLE
AND YOU’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF BOTH!!!
“Once in a lifetime experience,” is a term often used and rarely lived up to. This package, however, offers exactly that:
Join celebrity Jack Hanna (Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium as well as the star of Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown and Into the Wild), in the Big Apple for a live appearance on Good Morning America! You and your guest will stay at the Affinia 50 hotel in the heart of Mid-Town Manhattan, just steps away from Central Park, Times Square, theaters and museums. Your host for this amazing adventure is Brian Greene, a lead animal handler who has traveled with Jack for more than ten years. This considerate and energetic guide will ensure your experience is unforgettable!
After a day on your own exploring the “concrete jungle,” enjoy a private dinner with Brian and the rest of Jack’s staff! Hear first-hand stories about the animals, the television shows and appearances. Your day’s not over yet! Put on your khakis and bush hat and grab your camera. Ever wonder where Jack keeps the animals before one of his television appearances? They’re in your hotel! Brian will take you for an up-close experience with the animals you will never forget ~ just the keepers, the animals and YOU!
Your itinerary will include attending a live broadcast of Jack on Good Morning America! You and your guest will be picked up at the hotel and delivered to the GMA studio in the heart of Times Square. Enjoy the show from inside the studio ~ no “watching from the sidewalk” for the winner of this trip! After the live show, enjoy pictures with Jack and the animals!
Just like a real safari, you never know what may be waiting behind the next bush and this trip is no different. It’s not uncommon for other networks to find out that Jack is in town and invite him over, and you may be pleasantly surprised by these potential additions. Every trip to New York City with Jack and his staff is different, and your experience is sure to be unique!
Jack’s appearances are approximately every six weeks on GMA, so there is some flexibility in scheduling your trip, however, all trips must be scheduled prior to 5/5/2-13. The hotel suite includes a One-Bedroom Suite. This comfortable living space includes a fully appointed kitchen, sofa bed, dining area and separate bedroom. Package recipient is responsible for travel arrangements to and from NYC. Please be aware that in rare circumstances, Jack’s appearances may be rescheduled or canceled with little notice. We can not be held responsible for your travel arrangements if this should occur.
There is an option with this trip for 4 adults to accompany Jack and his crew to a taping of the David Letterman show. Participants must be 18 years old to attend. Jack Hanna is generally on Letterman every 3-4 months. This takes place after the GMA appearance. The lucky winner may elect to pass on this option, but it is not transferable to any other party. Going to both shows makes scheduling a bit more of a challenge, but definitely worth the effort! It is, after all, a jungle out there! Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind experience!
