Safari Tickets




Would you like to experience safari camping without having to travel to Africa? Pack up your "trunk" for a sleepover adventure at the Park, where you'll relax in comfy tents surrounded by the sounds of wildlife. Our campground overlooks the Park's African Plains field exhibit, where you can observe giraffes, rhinos, antelope, gazelles, and many other denizens of Africa going about their daily business, just as they would in the wild. Are you game?

Roar & Snore Safari is offered throughout most of the year with a variety of themed programs. Tent accommodations, camp activities and an after-hours look at the wild lives of our animals, guided walks, a campfire program, delicious dinner and hot breakfast, a Safari Park souvenir, and the unique opportunity to experience the Park at night are included in most sleepovers.

Adults-only Sleepovers
Discover the secret lives of animals through the kind of information we can only share with no children around! Must be 21 or older to attend.
