Open every day to the public, visitors can choose from a variety of activities that will be a treat to young and old alike. Imagine feeding a giraffe, enjoying countless "ahh" moments at the baby animal nursery and petting zoo; hopping on an African safari train or perhaps the Australian boat ride, or peering down from the sky train. That, and more, much more.
