Have you ever found yourself wondering what the zoo is like at night? For the first time ever, overnights at the Bronx Zoo aren't just for kids. We've created a brand new experience that may bring out your inner child, but is definitely adult-approved. Join us for dinner, drinks, trivia, and some up-close encounters with animals. Test your nerve on an after-dark safari ride and let loose to the DJ.

And trust us, there's no better way to start your morning than watching penguins eat their breakfast, or finding your Zen with yoga while it's still quiet. We'll provide the tent, food, adult beverages, and of course the animals. Bring your friends, and get ready for a wild night.

The experience includes:

  • Admission to the Bronx Zoo
  • One set-up tent on Astor Court (either 2 or 4 person tents in which you can choose your tentmates during registration; sleeping bag rental is additional fee)
  • Delicious dinner food stations, late-night snacks, hot breakfast and adult beverages (wine and beer)
  • DJ & Lounge
  • Up-close animal encounters
  • Access to select exhibits & Boo at the Zoo experiences
  • After-dark shuttle rides and night walk
  • Keeper chats
  • Instagram scavenger hunt
  • Souvenir mug and photo
