Earth Explorers

March 20, 2014 - September 1, 2014

National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers is organized around some of Earth’s spectacular eco-zones —the polar regions, oceans, rain forests, mountains and caves, and the African savanna — bringing the unparalleled adventures of National Geographic to life. Follow in the footsteps of explorers who routinely go to the ends of the Earth, all in the name of science. From coming face to face with a polar bear, to diving in a submersible, climbing to the top of a rain forest tree canopy, to soaring over the savanna in a hot air balloon, Earth Explorers allows guests of all ages to experience awe-inspiring parts of the world.
