Adventures in Africa
From the peak of Kilimanjaro to the sands of the Sahara, across the plains of the Serengeti and into the trees of the rainforest, Africa is a continent of beauty and diversity. The Zoo plays host to some of the most recognizable of Africa’s species. Join us on an adventure into Africa without ever leaving Houston.
