When you’re tucked under your blankets, snoring away, animals at our fabulous New Jersey zoos have an interesting and enchanting night life. Now is your chance to experience the unforgettable nocturnal happenings for yourself at the Cape May County Zoo. The zoo's first ever Zoo Night Walk will take place on September 6, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visitors, accompanied by a trained zookeeper, will have the after-hours opportunity to peer through the shadows of the night to view sleepy orangutans, lounging leopards, snorting zebras and other beasts of the fields and denizens of the jungle.
The 85-acre Cape May County Zoo is the centerpiece of Cape May County Park in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. It houses more than 550 animals representing 250 species of amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds. Giraffes, antelopes, zebras and ill-tempered ostriches roam a 57-acre African Savannah. Pigs and goats have a home in the barnyard area, turtles and snakes snooze in the reptile house and birds rest in a two-story atrium.
For the after-hours extravaganza, meet at the Tiger Gate (Gate #20) between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to begin your tour. The Gate closes at 7 p.m. sharp, so be on time, and don’t forget your flashlights. Admission to the Zoo Night Walk is $10 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and younger. Reservations are recommended, so visit www.facebook.com/cmczaazk, or email email@example.com.
