    The Ideal Venue for a Wedding Reception

    We were so happy that we chose the Nyami Nyami Lodge for our daughter’s wedding reception. Erin was wonderful to work with from start to finish. We had so many guests comment on how the venue was perfect, and they enjoyed seeing all the animals. The caterer was excellent and all the food was delicious. We loved how well organized they were and the set up for the appetizers, bar, and buffet was beautiful. Thank you so much for making our daughter's wedding day so special and memorable. We highly recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding or other special occasion venue.

    The perfect venue!

    Our wedding at the Brevard Zoo was perfect! We saw Giraffes during the ceremony and the venue was beautiful! Erin at the zoo made working with them so easy, and I highly recommend Brevard Zoo to anyone else who is looking for a venue! I can't wait to get the photos from my photographer of how great everything looked! It was completely perfect!

    A wedding to remember

    Having our wedding at Nyami Nyami Lodge at Brevard zoo was the best wedding decision we made. The venue is breathtaking and so unique. Everywhere you look it’s lush green, surprise animals, just a stunning location! Everyone at the zoo is incredibly kind and helpful as well. Even with Covid going on they made our day safe and special. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding perfect. Event Specialist Erin Gracie was always so quick with emailing us and was a big part of making our day so smooth and beautiful. Can’t say enough wonderful things about this venue!
