African Adventure

The Dawn of a New Adventure

African Adventure is a 13-acre, multi-phase expansion which features new animal species in spectacular naturalistic exhibits, as well as many multi-species, that together will emulate the African plains and savannas. African Adventure is a brand new, state-of-the-art home for a pride of lions, a family herd of African elephants, cheetahs, white rhinos, a brand new giraffe feeding station with 360-degree views of the savanna, and a dine-in restaurant called the Kopje Lodge!

African Adventure provides opportunities for cultural discovery, interactive play spaces and engaging live interpretation for all ages. Thanks to Measure Z, this spectacular addition to Fresno Chaffee Zoo offers guests a wildlife experience that is unparalleled in zoos today!
