The Wild Animal Sanctuary Field Trip Announced

The CppCon 2023 Field Trip will be a Wild Animal Sanctuary adventure.

Join Us on an Inspiring Journey to a Wild Animal Sanctuary!

We are thrilled to extend a warm invitation to all fellow conference attendees to join us on an extraordinary adventure beyond the conference venue. As part of our commitment to fostering a well-rounded experience, we have organized a visit to a remarkable wild animal sanctuary that promises to be both educational and awe-inspiring.

North of the conference hotel, the Wild Animal Sanctuary offers an incredible 1,214 acres (4.9 km^2) of natural habitats for rescued animals to enjoy. ​One of the largest carnivore sanctuaries in the world, designed and built like no other in existence. Everything about the facility is designed to ensure the animals’ welfare remains top priority, even with the numerous modern comforts provided to guests.

The raised walkway gives an unmatched vantage to see great animals at ease, engaging in their large environments. During our visit, we will have the opportunity to witness firsthand the incredible conservation efforts that go into protecting and rehabilitating these remarkable animals. 




We sincerely hope that you will seize this opportunity to explore the wonders of the wild alongside your fellow conference attendees. Let us come together, learn from nature’s marvels, and create memories that will leave a lasting impact. Transportation and Lunch will be provided in a location to facilitate meeting your fellow conference attendees.

We look forward to sharing this remarkable experience with you!


Spend a fun-filled Sunday October 1st with fellow attendees to take a walk on the wild side.

If you are arriving for CppCon 2023 by Sunday morning, this is your opportunity to get to know some of your fellow attendees while experiencing an amazing wildlife experience.
