ZSL London Zoo Sunset Safari

For 6 weeks every summer ZSL London Zoo opens its doors each Friday night from 6-10pm for its’s Sunset Safari. This is a chance for people to experience the zoo after hours and offers a great night out for both adults and children.

As you first come into the zoo you are met by the World Food Market with delicious food stalls offering everything from burgers and hotdogs to Moroccan chicken and Polish pierogi. There are also several bars selling beer, fruit cider, wine and of course soft drinks too.

You can still explore the zoo as usual, visiting Land of the Lions, Penguin Beach and even getting up close in personal with the monkeys. There are several science stations to engage the kids, as well as feeding sessions and talks by the keepers.

You can visit the Theatre of Life for talks and to watch gymnasts dressed as colourful animals performing on stage and around the park. If you want to join in the fun there’s even a tent offering face painting!

Finally, as the sun sets you can grab a drink and head down to Base Camp, where there are giant bean bags and deck chairs to relax on whilst watching the live music.
