In the evening in the zoo - African summer mood
A warm summer evening, African animals, a cozy atmosphere - the safari dinner in the zoo Schönbrunn.
After the zoo closes, it starts for Christian, our friends Michaela, Hermann and me.
The evening begins at the elephant house with an atmospheric cocktail that even looks like summer and savannah in color.
After the refreshing start there is a guided tour trough the zoo. Around 40 minutes we explore together with our guide Gregor the African wildlife here in Schönbrunn. And it is amazing.
There are the cheerful gazelles that jump happily through the enclosure. Right next to it, the colorful flamingos still talk loudly about the day. Opposite the elephants peacefully displace mountains of hay. In between, the zebra looks interested, who at this time is still walking in the zoo.
From the gepards we get skeptical eyes, so many people who want to marvel at them probably does not correspond to their evening program. The hippos do not really care, they walk leisurely their way, sink in the pool, emerge again and see what there is to eat.
The conclusion of the tour is the lion's feeding. Behaviorally, they are very reminiscent of the cats at home when they are sneaking around hungry in front of the food cabinet. However, the lions are a bit bigger and the energy that emerges from the hungry lions is fascinating. Well and the pieces of meat the lions get are also much larger than the usual food can at home.
Afterwards we go to our cozy dinner in the Kaiserpavillion. We were lucky that it was a lovely warm summer evening so we could enjoy our 4 course dinner on the patio overlooking the zoo. All served food tasted excellent and there was something for every taste - vegan and also with meat. In addition you get a fine wine or other drinks on request.
The safari dinner is always offered in the summer months. In the autumn we continue with the aquadinner and the polar dinner. But about them I will tell you later, because this ones Christian, our friends and me we will do soon.
So, do you want to take part in such an amazing evening? Then you will find all information under Safari Dinner. But beware, the places are sought after, so decide and register quickly.
