In the Wild
When booking your Within the Wild dining experience, please know that this type of experience has many variables to keep in mind. Some animals may be less active at dusk and even indoors and sleeping, while others may be loud and more active. Because you are dining outdoors, please keep in mind environmental variables like weather, temperature, shifts in sunset times, and insects such as mosquitos and bees. Your sales manager will work with you to minimize any concerns.
