You’ll need to supply your own sleeping bag and pillow, but all else is provided on a “Roar ’n‘ Snore Overnight Camp” sleep-over at the Melbourne Zoo in southeastern Australia.

Tents (with mattresses) are in the former elephant house, where you have dinner, then explore the zoo after dark, seeing nocturnal creatures and listening to camp hosts’ stories. After supper, retire to your tent. Wake to the calls of gibbons and birds, eat breakfast, then enjoy up-close animal encounters and behind-the-scenes experiences.

Runs from September to May on selected nights. Including zoo admission the second day, an overnight costs AUD199 (near $153) adult or AUD150 child (5-12 years). An adult must accompany children under 18. For dates and to book, call +61 1300 966 784. For info, visit www.zoo.org.au/melbourne/wild-encounters/roar-n-snore. Roar ’n‘ Snore can occur on nights when other activities operate, such as a Twilight Concert.
