Sunset Safari - enjoy the Zoo at sundown

Slow down, step back and see things differently with Sunset Safari at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo on Saturday 24 June from 6pm to 10pm.

Our feel-good evening is back for one night only, giving you the chance to enjoy the Zoo at dusk!

See our animals in a different light; chill with penguins, take it slow with sloth bears and spot our lynx in the half light.

Take in the unique atmosphere, watch animal feeds and spend quality time with friends and family against a backdrop of music and street artists.

Seeing nocturnal animals come to life in the evening in such an amazing setting - even more so at dusk”

The entire event was just fantastic. The air was so fresh and the sunset views were amazing, the atmosphere was excellent.’

Seeing the animals at night and the atmosphere of the evening felt very special. There was a lovely, warm, friendly atmosphere.”

Being able to get close to the animals and see their different behaviour at a later time of day.”

Enjoyed seeing the animals but also spending time with family in a relaxed environment - lookout cafe with background music was lovely.”
