Slumber Safari

Sleep Under the Stars at the Racine Zoo!

 2019 Slumber Safaris are now complete! Email to be notified when 2020 dates are posted!

5PM – 9AM

Sleepover with the lions, tigers, and bears – if you dare! 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 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!
