Description:

Go wild at night for a great cause! The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, and the Oklahoma Zoological Society (OZS), have teamed up fr the second annual event, Safari Soirée, scheduled for Friday, April 27, 2018, from 7 to 11 p.m.!  Safari Soirée will be a night to celebrate the community’s support of the Zoo’s conservation efforts to help save plants and animals here in Oklahoma and around the world, now spreading across four continents.

Safari Soirée is a paid event limited to guests ages 21-and-up that will include fabulous food, exotic drinks, rare animal experiences and, of course, flashlights for exploring. The evening will also include live music performed by "The Weathermen," a DJ, exciting prizes, and the freedom to explore and rediscover Oklahoma’s oldest and largest cultural attraction.

Guests are encouraged to explore the Zoo to discover multiple, illuminated conservation stations. At each station, the Zoo will highlight one of four global conservation programs that protects critically endangered species represented at the Zoo, including orangutans in Borneo, Asian elephants, Galapagos Tortoises and Monarch butterflies.
