Serengeti Bush Camp

The sun sets over the African Savanna. The buzz of crickets is briefly dulled by the roar of distant lions. We stroll along the trails, ever watching for a glimpse of the diverse wildlife. The stars appear and light our way as we brave the Serengeti night and return to camp. The flames of the campfire dance as stories of the day's adventure are told

How will your adventure unfold? Come to the Toronto Zoo's Serengeti Bush Camp to experience the wildlife of our African Savanna and Rainforest Pavilion, enjoy evening activities, campfire tales, and the chance to sleep under the stars in our authentic African tents.

Your overnight experience includes the following:

  • Accommodation in authentic African tents, complete with cots
  • Behind-the-scenes opportunity in the African Savanna area
  • Fully guided program, including interactive walking tours of African Savanna & African Rainforest Pavilion and an evening adventure

  • Zoomobile ride to and from camp
  • Zoo admission during the overnight
