Host a very special party - large or small!

Few people know that they can treat their guests to a private evening at the Zoo.

John Ball Zoo can be a delightfully casual party for families or it can become a tropical paradise for adults. It’s the only place where you can dine with the lions just inches away and watch the hornbills bob to the music.

You can rent the entire Zoo or just one special area. You can choose to offer your guests a catered meal, a bar, or a picnic.
The options are endless - the staff and animals are ready!
