African Veldt

The African Veldt is a focal point of the Zoo. Its central location makes an easily accessible meeting point for your family and friends. Here in this large open area, you will find our beautiful herd of giraffes, elands, Egyptian geese, and other wild birds who have decided to drop in for the day.
