Spend a night on the wild side at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's adults-only slumber party.

The overnight adventure welcomes adults ages 21 and up for dinner, drinks and a tour of the zoo, offering special encounters with a few African animals along the way.

The tour includes an inside look at how zookeepers keep the animals healthy and happy in their environments. The evening wraps up with a bonfire and eventually guests will make their way to an African safari tent with cot bunk beds.

Guests can enjoy a waffle bar and catered breakfast the following morning before spending some special time with the zoo's giraffes.

Upcoming overnight events are scheduled for April 18, May 23 and June 6 and tickets cost $156 for members and $166 for non-members. 

Tickets include dinner and two drinks, animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tour, sleeping arragments, breakfast and admission to the zoo the following morning. 

Guests should bring a sleeping bag and a pillow, toiletries, a water bottle, comfortable clothes and cash for the cash bar (if planning to purchase additional drinks). 

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens, 3400 Vine St., Avondale.
