See the animals at night on Busch Gardens Tampa's Serengeti Night Safari
Written by Robert Niles
Busch Gardens Tampa is taking reservations for its Serengeti Night Safari, an after-hours tour that includes food, drinks and opportunities to get up-close with some of the park's animals.Tweet
The event, which does not require a park admission, begins after sunset with appetizers and "adult" drinks at the park's Safari Club. Then it's out to the Serengeti Plain for a two-hour walking tour to see the giraffes, rhinos, zebras and other African animals. (The park uses special red lighting and night-vision monoculars to enhance night-time viewing.)

Visitors also will have the chance to meet some of the park's animal ambassadors before wrapping up the evening back at the Safari Club with coffee and desserts.
The Serengeti Night Safari is offered Nov. 5, 13, 20 and 27 and Dec. 4, 11 and 18. You must be 21 or older to participate, given the available alcohol. Cost is $60 per person, and can be booked online or by calling 1-888-800-5447.
If you go, we'd love to read a trip report.
