Night Safari Education Program Effectiveness

An exciting overnight program for groups!

As the sun begins to set, join our Safari Guides as they introduce you to a variety of beautiful animals from around the world. Explore the zoo when its most active- in the mystery of darkness! Watch the nocturnal predators stalk, jump, and pounce, as we feed them an evening meal...always cautious of what may lurk in the shadows!

The adventure begins with a fascinating Wildlife Presentation in our Education Centre, an opportunity to see some amazing animals up-close and meet the professional staff that care for them. "Thank you for your efforts, the Cubs all had a great time and I think learned something. We had a great campfire, with songs and skits."
- Scott Barrett, Portsmouth Cubs

Once it gets completely dark outside, follow a Safari Guide through the zoo as they take you on an evening feeding tour, a time when the large predators are most active, like the tigers, leopards and jaguars!

Afterwards, settle around a large campfire and listen to the nearby sounds of the wild: the howl of the wolves, roar of the majestic lions, chatter of the monkeys and holler of the peacocks. The same sounds that will wake you from your bunkhouses first thing in the morning!

Groups are welcome to stay and explore Jungle Cat World during the day.

Just wanted to say a big "thank you" to all the wonderful staff at Jungle Cat World for our Night Safari. The Guides absolutely loved it, and are already talking about coming back next year! Thanks again!
