Night Safaris

Spring Break
Early Childhood

Join us for a unique overnight adventure that only the Zoo can provide. Louisville Zoo Night Safari programs offer the intimate experience of having the Zoo and our education team to yourselves for what will certainly prove to be an exciting night to remember. Students will participate in engaging activities, explore the Zoo after dark and go on a morning walk to see our animals rising for the day.

We are fully booked for Spring 2018, both public and private Night Safari experiences.  If you are interested in a fall program, please contact Wanda Peck at (502) 238 5344.
