Picnics Enjoy the Zoo and gather for a casual, family friendly picnic in Whiting Safari Camp. Conveniently located near the carousel, this relaxing space is ideal for your next family or corporate gathering in the spring, summer and fall months. Our four open-air picnic shelters provide privacy and comfort. The oversized picnic tables and open spaces offer plenty of room for mingling with co-workers and families. A complimentary animal visit is included with your event. But you can add more animals for even more fun and learning. Additional enhancements include other activities such as face painting, stilt walkers or green screen photographer so your guests take home a keepsake for remembering the day. A sound system is available for music and announcements.
