Family Overnight Safari

Our most popular family tradition is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year!

Ever thought about catching some zzzs in the company of zebras? How about snoozing with the snow leopards? Well, dreams come true on the Bronx Zoo’s Family Overnight Safari. After another sold-out series last year, our overnights are back!

As always, you and your family (children 5 and older) will be treated to fun-filled, educational activities throughout the entire event. Along with some new surprises and a late-night snack to keep the energy going, this extraordinary event is sure to create memories your family will treasure – including a commemorative anniversary t-shirt (included in price). Sign up soon – space is limited.

Bring your own tent, sleeping bags, and picnic dinner. Beverages, dessert, late-night snack, and breakfast, will be provided. No need for alarm clocks, our vocal sea lions will provide the wake-up call.

Overnights begin at 4:30 PM on Saturday and end at 10:00 AM on Sunday. Reserve your space in one of our four events now!
