The spirit of Africa is unmistakable at the San Antonio Zoo. Africa Live! the Zoo’s newest exhibit presents an amazing opportunity for Zoo guests to actually experience the world of Africa - its plants, animals, and people. As home to some of the world's most extraordinary animals. Africa is a continent like no other because more animals are threatened by loss of habitat than any other factor, it is especially important for people to view these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. Few people will have the opportunity to travel to the continent of Africa. It is our goal to transport Zoo visitors into this majestic land.
Hippos, crocodiles, and African cichlids from Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi are visible through underwater viewing windows that allow guests to see these creatures in the environment where they spend much of their lives.
Africa Live! See it. Feel it. LIVE IT.
