The Africa Savannah exhibit opened at the Washington Park Zoo* on April 29, 1989:
The exhibit replicates the dry, open plains of East Africa. Familiar African animals such as giraffes, zebras, hippos and rhinos live along riverbanks and water holes. DeBrazza’s monkeys and colorful African birds play in the trees. Visitors walk through a large glass-enclosed aviary, down a safari path and up onto an overlook where they can gaze out over the savanna.
* The zoo’s name officially changed to Oregon Zoo in 1998.
