There are many different areas within the park for you to explore. Into Africa is a new immersive reserve with amazing views of some of the most popular African animals. It is home to critically endangered black rhino, Eland and Lechwe antelope, Ostrich, Giraffe and endangered Grevy’s Zebra. The animals roam together in the landscaped reserve. Into Africa is the closest to a view over the Savannah that you will find outside Africa.
