Come to Summer Safari Nights, Presented by TMC Healthcare, and enjoy the Zoo in the cooler evening hours! Each week will feature keeper chats about different animal rock stars — plus animal encounters, artifact stations, giraffe feedings, carousel rides, and crafts. Face painting and glitter tattoos will be available for purchase. Refresh with dinner and a cold drink at the Flamingo Grill, listen to live music by some of Tucson’s best bands. Take a ride on the Cox Jungle Carousel and play games with Tucson Parks and Recreation’s ‘Ready, Set, Rec! There will be a different featured “Rock Star Animal” each week so every visit brings something new and plenty of photo opportunities to remember a great evening.
Check back often for updates on bands and activities!
