At the Zoo - September 13, 2018 / 10:00 am

Join us Thursday, September 13, 2018 as we officially open the highly-anticipated Animals of the Savanna expansion. Visit the Zoo to experience the new five-acre area featuring two female Masai giraffes, Kipenzi and Iggy, plains zebra, ostriches, the Zoo’s resident male white rhino, Bill, two colonies of naked mole rats, and much more!

Take advantage of the Zoo tram that will be running all day to take guests from the front of the Zoo to the new area beyond the elephant barn, and don’t forget to stop by the Savanna Outpost, a brand-new concessions and retail area.

Please note: All of the animals (including the white rhino) are acclimating to their new surroundings and will not be viewable to the public until the opening on September 13.
