Overnight Safari

Bring your scout troop, youth group, class, or private party, and join us for a spectacular night exploring Wild Africa!

We have four unique topics to choose from, or we can create a custom program just for you.


Every overnight includes live animal presentations, fun games and activities, and a night hike! When the night ends, kick back and relax in a tent overlooking the savanna exhibit.


Dinner, a snack, breakfast, and admission to the zoo the following day are also included in the price.


All overnights are for participants ages 6 and up.
