Spend the night at Zoo Atlanta and embark on a nocturnal adventure you won’t soon forget during a NightCrawler Overnight!
Offered for both groups and families, NightCrawler Overnight programs feature a night Zoo tour led by a Zoo Atlanta educator, a behind-the-scenes visit to our Animal Nutrition Kitchen, and opportunities to learn more about wildlife and wild places!
Family NightCrawlers focus on creating fun “wild memories” for parents and their children to discover together.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING A NIGHTCRAWLER OVERNIGHT?
- 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 many of the areas that we visit are not wheelchair accessible. Plan to spend up to 5 hours on your feet touring the Zoo and behind-the-scenes areas.
- 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 flashlight. 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!
