Animals After Dark

There are two ways to discover the nightlife at the Memphis Zoo!


Zoo Snooze

When the Zoo gates close at the end of the day, your overnight adventure is just beginning. Your guided night of exploration typically begins at 7:00 p.m. and ends the next morning at 9:00 a.m.  Are you up for the experience? You and your group members will get to…

  • Meet animals up-close
  • Go on a guided moonlight safari (weather permitting)
  • Participate in fun games and activities
  • Enjoy the Zoo the next day after the program ends

All participants sleep in indoor, climate-controlled areas (unless otherwise noted) with restroom facilities, but no showers. A late-night snack and a light continental breakfast are served.  

With a variety of program choices for groups of all types, you’re sure to find a Zoo Snooze program right for you. 

  • 7 p.m. to 9 a.m.
  • Ages 5 years old and up
  • $50 per participant
  • Minimum of 15 participants
  • $200 non-refundable deposit required at the time of booking

Can't spend the whole night at the Zoo?  Then how about an evening tour?  Register for an Owl Prowl and your group will get to experience all the fun of a Zoo Snooze, without the sleeping bags!

  • Ages 5 years old and up
