Slumber Safari: Animals of the Serengeti
August 13 @ 5:00 pm - August 14 @ 9:00 am
Are you looking for a fun, outdoor family event? Look no further than the Racine Zoo’s Slumber Safari! The night begins with entering the Zoo just as it’s closing, setting up your tents while hearing the tiger’s nightly roars or the primates’ end-of-day calling. Once you’re all set, it’s time to visit an animal for a behind-the-scenes encounter. Then, join your fellow campers at separate picnic tables to enjoy a pizza dinner, or bring your own food! Each camper will also complete a craft that matches that slumber safari’s theme.
After dinner, the fun continues with a visit from some of the ambassador animals. If that wasn’t enough animal time (and it never is!), your family will then be treated to a late night, themed tour of the Zoo. See how the animals behave differently when guests are gone and the sun is setting, before wrapping up the night with s’mores around the campfire near the pavilion overlooking Lake Michigan. After a night under the stars in your tent, wrap up with individually wrapped continental breakfast items, and enjoy complimentary admission to the Zoo the next day.
On August 13, discover the animals that call the Serengeti home, including an up-close encounter with Masai giraffes, the tallest giraffes in the world! Meet some of the smaller animals of Africa in an ambassador encounter, and complete a themed craft during your Zoo adventure! Must sign up by Monday, August 8 at 5pm. $70 per person. Tent rental available.
