Most People Don’t Know You Can Stay Overnight At This Extraordinary Zoo In Nebraska
Lots of us have visited the fabulous Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, but our visits have been mostly limited to the daylight hours. Now, you can spend a whole night at this world-class zoo in a blanket, a conventional tent or a glamorous safari tent, and it’s a one-of-a-kind experience.
No matter which stay you choose, you’ll get to enjoy fun extras like morning and/or evening hikes, keeper talks, games, movies, snacks, and educational programming. Participants must be at least four years old to participate in zoo sleepovers, with the exception of the Pre-Campers Experience (all ages) and the Adult-Only Safaris. Costs range from $25 to $100 per person and some stays require you to bring items like tents, sleeping bags, and pillows. Although sleepovers are held all year round, they aren’t a nightly event; for more information including upcoming dates for each type of overnight stay, click here. Have fun on your very own safari!
