Fiona Slumber Party

It’s time to go to bed and Fiona can’t fall asleep until she says, “goodnight,” to all her animal friends at the Zoo. In this exclusive Twiga Tented Camp Overnight experience, families will get to meet Richard Cowdrey, illustrator of new book being released April 7th, Fiona, It’s Bedtime and experience a special reading of the book by the illustrator himself. Each registered group will receive a pre-release copy of the book for Mr. Cowdrey to sign (additional copies may be added to cart for purchase during registration).

During this overnight, families will also have the opportunity to say, “goodnight,” to some of our Zoo animals with a guided night hike, special encounters with animal ambassadors, and unique behind-the-scenes tours. At the end of our night, retire to comfortable cots in the Twiga tented camp until the next morning when you’ll wake to a view of the Giraffe Ridge habitat and a catered breakfast. Space is very limited and will sell out quickly as this exclusive event allows guests to receive the newest Fiona book before it hits the stores. Sign up today!
