Sleep at the Zoo

Family and Overnight Safari programs are fun-filled educational evenings including a guided tour of what the nighttime zoo has to offer. This is a perfect opportunity to see animal behaviors you may not have seen before.

During your overnight safari you will:

  • Take a twilight tour of the zoo
  • Watch animals receive enrichments
  • Meet animal ambassadors up close
  • Enjoy songs, stories and a snack during an evening program
  • Listen to the sounds of the wild as you fall asleep under the stars
  • Enjoy a grab-and-go breakfast snack
