We invite you to a unique Zoo event, Silent Night.

Our busy lives are often filled with schedules, responsibilities and noise. Come prepared for a peacefully quiet evening away from the pressures of the city below.

  • Connect with our animals peacefully and quietly, enjoying the natural beauty of the Zoo.
  • Turn off your phones, quiet your voices and tap into your own mindfulness.
