Offered for both groups and families, NightCrawler Overnight programs are a great way to explore and discover the Zoo in a whole new light – moonlight! Each program features a guided Zoo tour and biofact exploration with a knowledgeable Zoo Educator, the opportunity to observe animals’ nocturnal behaviors using technology like night vision scopes, engaging group activities, a ride on the Endangered Species Carousel, a catered breakfast, and more!

  • Group NightCrawlers are ideal for all groups, especially school and Scout groups. Scouts, reach out to learn how you can connect your badges and petals to our program.
  • Family NightCrawlers focus on creating fun “wild memories” for parents and their children to discover together.


  • Rain or shine. This program happens rain or shine, and much of the program is outside. Please plan for the weather and dress accordingly.
  • The Zoo is made for walking! Most of this experience is spent walking around the Zoo, and there are multiple irregular surfaces and steep inclines. Plan to spend up to 5 hours on your feet touring the Zoo.
  • Come with a full belly. While we will take a break for a snack in the middle of the evening, please eat dinner before you arrive. And remember to bring your water bottle with you.
  • Embrace the dark. It’s called a NightCrawler for a reason. Explore the Zoo by the light of the moon and our Educators’ red-light flashlights. Guests may only use flashlights at bedtime.
  • Rustic camping meets the Zoo. All sleeping locations are in climate-controlled buildings with a restroom either in the building or nearby.
  • Stay awhile. At the completion of your program the following morning, you are welcome to stay and enjoy the Zoo at your leisure.
  • Have FUN! This unique experience is unlike anything that you can do in Atlanta. We look forward to hosting you for an upcoming program!
