Rise and shine with the Zoo’s African Watering Hole animals. This exclusive VIP experience is a private event that takes place before the Zoo opens. Enjoy dining al fresco in our beautiful African Pavilion next to rhinos, ostrich and zebras as they feast on their morning meal.

A full breakfast menu is served buffet-style while guests are treated to a special keeper chat. Once breakfast has concluded, guests will receive a special tour of the African aviary, be introduced to the antelope yard, and get up-close with Zoo animal ambassadors! Don’t forget your camera to capture the many memories.
