Night Safaris

Edventures 7See the Zoo Like No One Else!

To secure or attend a program, your reservation form OnsiteForm15.pdf AND payment must be turned in AT LEAST two weeks in advance.

Once we have received your reservation form AND payment, you will be sent a confirmation letter via email.  Print out a copy of this letter to bring with you on the day of your program, as this letter will serve as your admission ticket into the zoo.  Groups without their confirmation letter WILL NOT be allowed to attend the program or be admitted into the zoo.

Knoxville Zoo has a limited number of openings available for each program, and these openings are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.  Turning in a reservation form and payment on time may not guarantee a slot for your group, as our programs are popular.

No refunds are issued unless the program is cancelled due to insufficient registration or severe weather.

If you have any questions, please contact Jason Moeller at (865) 637-5331 x331 or by email at jmoeller@knoxville-zoo.org

Make your visit unique by scheduling a Night Safari lead by one of our zoo staff! A fun way to experience the zoo for your scout troop, school, family and even friends. See some of the animals that are not as active during the day, and learn about why they wait until it's late to come out and play! All Night Safaris are two hours in length.


Months: April through November
Times: 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Night Safaris are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, and are subject to availability.

Are you a Junior Girl Scout Leader? Junior Girl Scouts can turn a Night Safari into a once in a lifetime opportunity! With the help of the Tanasi Council, the Nocturnal badge was developed for the zoo, but the zoo...and now you can earn it! All Nocturnal Workshops are two hours in length.
