Travel down the Safari Trail and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the African continent.
Along the comfortable and accessible path, see zebras, wildebeest, vultures, and ostrich grazing on the grassy savannah. Next, enter the kopje rock formations to discover spotted hyenas, bat-eared foxes, honey badgers, banded mongoose, and servals. And, of course, experience the thrill of being nose to nose with the 400-pound king of beasts, the African lion!
Step into the shady African village where you will encounter de Brazza’s and colobus monkeys, lovebirds, and the spectacular leopard. Climb our 14-foot-platform to feed the reticulated giraffes – a totally unique experience you won’t want to miss!
Put your toes in the treetops as you glide 38 feet into the air! Get a bird’s eye view of lions, zebras, wildebeest, and ostrich in the African Journey exhibit.
