Opened on Earth Day 1998, the park is the largest in the world and accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

The popular Kilimanjaro Safari ride takes you to the African savanna where a tour guide drives you through 110 acres of forest, plains and wetlands. Encounter up to 34 different animal species including lions, giraffes, crocodiles, zebras, elephants and more!
Afterwards, head to an on-site dinner location, Tamu Tamu Courtyard, and enjoy a private, full-buffet dinner with open bar.
