VIP early entry – 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Main Event – 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. 

Atlanta’s wildest wine cellar comes uncorked for another year at Sippin’ Safari! You won’t want to miss this signature end-of-summer event, featuring wine sampling, tasty bites from local restaurants, live music on stages throughout the Zoo, evening wildlife viewing and more for Zoo-goers ages 21 and up.

Sippin’ Safari has sold out in the past; advance ticket purchases are encouraged! Tickets include wine sampling, food and live music.

General admission tickets include admission to Zoo Atlanta, wine/beer samples, bites from local Atlanta restaurants (while supplies last), access to live music and games.

VIP Experience!

In addition to the general admission offerings, VIP guests will enjoy early entry into Sippin’ Safari at 5 p.m., exclusive VIP wines and beers, and private restrooms in the air-conditioned VIP Lounge.

Know before you go:

  • Sippin’ Safari is open to guests ages 21 and up; guests under 21 will not be admitted.
  • Zoo Atlanta animals need their beauty sleep as well! Be sure to arrive before dusk, when most animals will head in for bedtime, and select bars will close.
  • This event is rain or shine.
