Wild Dinner

Within the Wild: A Dining Experience

The new normal has given us the opportunity to create one of a kind, intimate dining experiences. Small-group, outdoor seating, within the wild. Let us help you create a memorable experience to celebrate graduations, anniversaries, birthdays, engagements and more.

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 sleeping, while others could be loud and playful. Because you are dining outdoors, please keep in mind environmental variables like weather, temperature, shifts in sunset times and mosquitos. Your Sales Manager will work with you to minimize any concerns.
