Spend a night with us at the Zoo!

Bring your group for a magical Zoo Sleepover and get to experience behind the scenes at Wellington Zoo after everyone else has gone home.

During your Zoo Sleepover you will get out and about in the Zoo after the other visitors have gone. See what happens behind the scenes at the Zoo and tempt one of our amazing animals with a night-time snack.

After all that excitement, you get to bed down with your buddies – you could be snuggling up at the Archibald Centre, which overlooks Monkey Island, or snoozing in our Living Room, in close quarters with some of our cutest critters.
The next morning you get to see what happens at the Zoo before our visitors arrive and make a special gift to keep our animals stimulated and happy, with your adventure ending as we open the doors at 9.30am.

Bring your sleeping bag and pillow and some warm clothes for night-time adventuring. We’ll provide sleeping rolls but you’re welcome to bring your own mattress if you like. Don’t forget your camera to snap some precious photos to remember your wild night!
