Sleep in our new Camp Okapi campground tucked away in the Wilds of Africa!  Tents sit atop wooden decks overlooking a rustic fire pit, perfect for roasting marshmallows and singing around the campfire.  Tent features include cots, fans, and electrical outlets.  Each tent accommodates ten (10) guests total and may be mixed-family and mixed-gender.  We offer a special rate if you would like to reserve an entire tent (based on availability).

Family Campouts begin at 7 p.m. and end at 10 a.m. the following day.  The minimum participant age is 5 years old.  Participants 17 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old.  Limit four (4) children per adult.  No free adult chaperones.  Adults must accompany children throughout the overnight experience, including all walks, tours, and activities and must enforce and abide by Dallas Zoo rules. We cannot accommodate special events/requests such as birthday parties, reunions, etc. in our educational programs.  Campouts are not exclusive to your group and we may book multiple groups per night and per tent. We require all participants to be preregistered.
