The huge man-made Baobab tree is surrounded by a labyrinth of trails and walkways which lead to a variety of animals. Visitors can view cotton top tamarins, collared brown lemurs, macaws and even Galapagos tortoises in this zone. In “Africa” zone, visitors climb aboard an open side vehicle to partake in an authentic African safari experience.
