I love to travel and some time ago discovered I also love to write, combine this with my husband's photography and we get to share it all with you. Please visit us at www.facebook.com/brucevandersluisimages
Come and Sleep with the Animals
If you are hearing the call of the wild and can see yourself on a safari sleeping amongst the sounds of wild animals, then Wild Nights at Adelaide Zoo is a great way to see if you can survive the wild in a safe environment.
Children must be accompanied by a supervising parent with no more than 3 children to one adult. Wheelchair facilities and toilets are available but this is a wild experience therefore no power points!
On your adventure you will arrive at 6.15 pm after which you will undertake activities and have dinner. Lights out is at 11 pm when you will get to experience the sounds of the animals throughout the night and wake up at 7 am for breakfast. You will need to bring with you pillows and a sleeping bag, toiletries (showers are limited), wet weather gear (this is an all weather experience), linens and towels, a torch and closed shoes. Your experience will finish at 11 am, however you can stay for the remainder of the day in the zoo and take advantage of a 10% discount on full price products in the zoo shop.
Wild Nights are family friendly events and available for ages 6 and up.
Cost is $380 for a two person tent (general public) or $330 for zoo members. If you want to bring the whole family a $50 discount applies on the second tent booked. Further information is available at the Adelaide Zoo website, where bookings can also be made.
