Evening Parties

Shaba Terrace

Our large open air terrace with dual stairwells, elevator and private restrooms, is located upstairs at Main Camp. A beautiful thatched roof with versatile lighting and overhead fans or heaters, microphone, and sound system make this a perfect location for casual and formal celebrations for corporate or private events.

Seating capacity of 400 guests

Giraffe Overlook and Savanna Blooms Garden

Located near the center of the park, the Giraffe Overlook and Savanna Blooms Garden is a stunning replica of an African Savanna. The elevated viewing platform allows your guests to get eye-to-eye with, and even feed, the Zoo’s gentlest giants. Guests can mingle among the giraffes or take a stroll through the beautiful garden while enjoying cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres. This location is the perfect addition to any after hour event or can stand alone for private events.
