Zoo Nights

7 Jun - 26 Jul 2019

Zoo Nights is back for 2019!

You're invited to see the Zoo as you've never seen it before, serving up a unique mix of wildlife and city life on Friday nights over the summer.

New this year, put your putting skills to the test in our brand new Plonk crazy golf course*! Travel across the world visiting our animal's habitats in this 9-hole course, featuring crazy loops, balancing beams and radical ramps.

We're excited to launch our new guided tour, You'll Never See a Moon-walking Emu, where you can discover the strangest animal facts you never thought you needed to know, and will certainly never forget. Or, back by popular demand, find out what animals really get up to after dark in our Birds and the Bees tour, where our expert guides will help you unravel the mysteries of sex in the animal kingdom*.

If you’re feeling peckish, enjoy an array of street food vendors offering exciting flavours and unique dishes from around the globe, with plenty of choice for herbivores and carnivores. Grab a drink from one our watering holes and chill out surrounded by live acoustic music, animal lanterns and a variety of entertainment.

Tickets are strictly limited and dates sold out fast in 2018, so be quick to grab yourself a place at the totally unmissable event of the summer.

Many visitors have returned year after year to enjoy the atmosphere and experience of Zoo Nights and revisit their favourite animals. It’s a great opportunity to make the most of the lighter summer evenings and relax seeing our amazing animals before they go to bed. But don’t just take our word for it! Here is some of the fab feedback from guests to last year’s Zoo Nights:

“I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the night. It was really relaxing and a good vibe. It was very fun and enjoyable to walk around.”

"I’ve already booked my tickets and I can’t wait to return and see the animals.

"During the summer months, if you want a nice chilled evening, I would 100% recommend it!!! #ZSLZooNights was perfect, adults only, food [stalls], drinks, entertainment. Just such a nice summer evening to enjoy the zoo and all the animals!!"
