Slumber Safari

Sleep Under the Stars at the Racine Zoo!

June 28 – 29, 2019  |  July 26 – 27, 2019  |  August 23 – 24, 2019

Sleepover with the lions, tigers, and bears- if you dare! The Racine Zoo is proud to continue our Slumber Safari during the 2018 Spring/Summer season and it’s guaranteed to be a roaring good time. This exciting adventure has guests enjoying a pizza dinner alongside their feathered friends, a guided tour throughout the Zoo, getting up close and personal with our animal ambassadors in a behind-the-scenes tour, the opportunity to engage in one of a kind of enrichment for our animal friends, and of course ending the night with a campfire favorite-s’mores! After a restful night dreaming under the stars along the shoreline of Lake Michigan, guests will enjoy a continental breakfast while watching the animals enjoy a special breakfast of their own!

Bring your own tent or rent one of ours! Guests also can add the option of a behind-the-scenes tour of the Charles and Jennifer Johnson Land of the Giants - seeing our giraffes and rhinos up close and indulging them with a late night snack!
