Bring your group for a wild sleepover at Zoo Miami!  Go on an adventurous night experience through the zoo at night seeing what animals are awake and prowling the night.  Our sleepovers are a great experience as they are both fun and educational whether it’s a birthday party, scout event, school trip, or any other group event.

Included in your overnight experience is:

  • Pizza dinner
  • Night hike – See what animals are awake at night!
  • Animal encounter – Experience an up close encounter with a couple animal ambassadors
  • Creating an animal enrichment – What is enrichment?  It is an activity that provides physical and mental stimulation to an animal, bringing out its natural behaviors (ex: creating a fake cardboard zebra that goes to our African lions!).  Create an enrichment for an animal ambassador and we will send you footage of them using it!
  • Breakfast

The cost of an overnight experience is $60/person with a 20-person minimum.  The maximum capacity is 50 people.  Accommodations are within our air-conditioned classrooms with a 10% non-refundable deposit required to reserve a date for your experience.  If you would like to receive next day admission to the zoo it is an additional $7/person.
