Craft cocktail series is back for one more installment on August 12  

WHAT: Zoo-goers ages 21 and up who missed the June and July installments of Zoo Atlanta’s all-new craft cocktail series have just one more opportunity to experience Savanna Nights with the third and final event of the summer on Friday, August 12, 2022.   

 Guests will enjoy tastings of imaginative, wildlife-inspired craft cocktails immersed in the unforgettable backdrop of Zoo Atlanta’s African Savanna, home to African elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, warthogs, meerkats, and southern white rhinos. As Savanna Nights highlights the wildlife of the African Savanna, other zones of the Zoo will not be open; activities will be concentrated on the African Savanna.

Adding to the vibes of the casual evening will be live music from Ben Wade Band; special Keeper Talks for a deeper dive into animal care; and wildlife viewing until dusk on the African Savanna. Food truck bites from Tex’s Tacos, The Fresh Truck, and Gotta Have It Catering will be available for purchase.

Tickets include six complimentary cocktail flight tasting tickets redeemable for one four-ounce tasting of each available cocktail. Beer, wine, and mixed drinks will also be available for purchase.

Tickets are $35 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $40 for non-Members. Get tickets or learn more about featured cocktails, music, and food here on

Savanna Nights is open to ages 21 and up only; guests under 21 will not be admitted.

WHEN: Friday, August 12, 2022, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
