Giants of the Savanna


usatodaybestexhibit2015The Dallas Zoo’s Giants of the Savanna habitat, open since May 2010, provides an interactive experience for guests built around the many different species of animals that call the savanna home: elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, lions, warthogs, red river hogs, guinea fowl, and cheetahs. Take a break and learn more about these animals with interactive exhibits at the Simmons Safari Base Camp. Giants of the Savanna was named a top 10 zoo exhibit by USA Today in 2015 and has received high praise from researchers, zoo industry professionals, and Zoo guests. It was recognized for Significant Achievement with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ 2011 Exhibit Award.
