About

The Brevard Zoo offers you an escape from the common venues with a one-of-a-kind experience. Our lush & distinct natural surroundings offer unparalleled charm & beauty for wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, and receptions.

Our Nyami Nyami River lodge is a beautiful indoor venue that is great for receptions. It is a beautifully decorated ballroom with windows on all sides for a fabulous view that can seat up to 220 people. Its large, covered veranda overlooking expedition Africa is perfect for ceremonies, cocktails, or dinner under the stars! Have your guests greeted by our animal ambassadors, watch for the giraffes grazing just across the river from your event or admire the meerkats in your private habitat viewing area!

Ask us about having your reception or event in the Zoo, engagements packages, mini-monys & more!

What’s better than having your event continue to give after your special day! All funds generated from your event go towards animal care, education programs, and preservation of wildlife.

Perfect Day

Originally planning on just doing a very small ceremony at the courthouse, I had a pipe dream of doing it somewhere meaningful. I didn’t think that with a 2 weeks notice they would even respond to me let alone have something available in my price range. Upon reaching out online, Shai Salter reached out right away and literally made a last minute ceremony perfect. She didn’t just squeeze me in to their busy schedule, she took the time to talk to me after hours when I could get out of work, and gave me options of what I could do and where I could do it. Honestly, it was surprising at how much they offered. She got to know me and gave me recommendations that suited us perfectly and offered things I would have never thought of. I was able to choose me and my wife’s absolute favorite spot in the entire zoo and was able to have the ceremony and tiny reception before the zoo even opened! Shai went above and beyond and I cannot say enough good things about her. She came in on her day off on a Sunday to meet with us and give us a walkthrough of everything. She was patient with all of our questions and even texted me back after hours when I thought of silly little questions. Thank you so very much for making our day so special!

A Dream Wedding

I could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding. The food was amazing. The event coordinator and catering manager literally went above and beyond to make this the best night of our lives. And I have to mention the ANIMALS. I’ve always loved animals so being able to have a few attend my wedding was an incredible experience. We are forever grateful
