Ever wondered what the zoo is like after hours? The Cincinnati Zoo overnights put you and your group in the middle of the zoo at night where you will get to take a night hike, participate in fun, educational activities, get a peek at some of the zoo’s behind-the-scenes areas, and meet some of our animal ambassadors up close and personal!
Guests begin the evening with drinks and dinner and then take a zoo tour, including special encounters with some of our African Zoo animals. The adventure continues with special, behind-the-scenes peeks, learning what it takes to keep our animals happy and healthy. The night will wind down around the bonfire before settling in for the night in a comfortable cot bunk bed in an African safari tent. Wake up the next morning to a catered breakfast, complete with a waffle bar. Wrap up this unique experience with an up-close encounter with our giraffes. Tents sleep up to 10 and there will be others outside of your group sleeping in the tent.
Join the Zoo’s overnight program, Overnight Adventures, for special evenings designed for parents and children, age 5 and up. During the program, you will hike the Zoo, go behind the scenes, experience live animal encounters, and engage in other exciting activities. Awake to lion and gibbon calls, have breakfast, and then enjoy a special animal experience.
