If you’re looking for a unique experience to give the kids for the holidays, check out the Kansas City Zoo overnights with the animals.

Throughout the year, there are opportunities for a Nocturnal Safari, Birthday Bash Overnight, Slumber Down Under with Kangaroos, a Polar Bear PJ Party, Penguin Pole-Looza and Elephant Extravaganza. Most overnights are designed for children six and older, accompanied by an adult. They usually included themed activities, an educational encounter with animal ambassadors, evening snack, night hike and continental breakfast.
