Are you ready for the roars and snores of the Greenville Zoo after dark? Whether you have a scout troop, school class, church group, family reunion, birthday party, or are just looking for a wild night with friends, the zoo has a private after-hours experience that you will never forget!

Overnights

Overnight programs are currently on hold. Please see our Twilight Tours and Sunset Scouts programs for educational after-hours experiences.


Twilight Tours

Twilight Tours

During a Twilight Tour, groups of up to 10 individuals enjoy a private after-hours tour of the zoo with a zookeeper. Once the tour is complete, the group meets an animal ambassador inside one of our classroom spaces and enjoys an evening snack. Depending on the group, the education team will then lead a game, craft, or another activity to correspond with badgework, classwork, or to be a fun family activity. Finally, we take an evening stroll around the zoo, listening and watching for nighttime activity around the zoo. Best for ages 8 and up.

When To Book

Twilight Tours experiences must be fully scheduled one month in advance

Pricing

Groups of up to 10: $500

Twilight Tours Times

Check-in at 6:00 pm at the front gate and the fun doesn’t stop until 9:00 pm

Once the tour is complete, the group meets two animal ambassadors inside one of our classroom spaces and enjoys an evening snack.
