If so we have a special event just for you. A once-in-a-lifetime experience for MasterCard customers, our unique Safari Sleepover is your chance for an intimate experience exploring the zoo after hours. Pitch your tent on historic Astor Court just steps away from the Sea Lion pool, then make your way to a delicious barbecue dinner, complete with musical entertainment.
Come face-to-face with amazing animals with private visits to exhibits and attractions, and much more. With cameras and flashlights in hand, you’ll see what life is like for nocturnal animals and unravel the mysteries of our secretive and sophisticated rodents. Other family-oriented activities include a marshmallow roast and s’mores, as well as a sing-along to cap off your evening.
In the morning, you’ll relax with a hot breakfast, zoo games, and a nature walk. Then spend as much time as you like exploring all the zoo has to offer, from the depths of Madagascar! to the World of Reptiles, our tranquil Butterfly Garden and Bug Carousel, all before the park is open to the public! You’ll have free access to all rides and attractions. By the time the zoo opens, you’ll have collected a treasure trove of memories to call your own.
