Take a walk on the wild side with our Jungle Safari theme on Saturday night. Plan on wearing an animal print or safari (khaki) outfit to blend in with the other animals on the loose. You will be allowed to feed the Goans!
FYI for first time campers: we have a photoshoot with the theme backdrop, on Saturday evening.
