Sunset on Savanna

September 1, 2017
5pm -10pm

The ultimate date night begins with exclusive use of the zoo for you and your sweetheart for two hours. Stroll the grounds at your own pace before making your way to the International Depot to travel by tram to Wild Africa! The mood is set as giraffe, zebra and antelope greet you just as the sun slowly sinks behind the savanna. Enjoy live music in the African Village and head down the trail to the African Painted Dogs and Lions while enjoying an elegant strolling dining experience, along with select wines and brews, catered by the Executive Chef of Taste of the Wild! And for a premium, a limited number of guests can extend the experience with an overnight stay with amenities in their own Tented Camp! Awaken in the morning to coffee and breakfast while you watch the animals descend upon the savanna.

*Binder Park Zoo will close at 4pm to prepare for the event.
