South American Adventure

South American Adventure

In the South American Adventure, you will walk along a boardwalk in the “jungle” to discover and meet a variety of animals from the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. During this adventure, you will learn about tortoises, macaws, sloths, and the importance of tropical forests in our everyday lives. Join us for a South American Adventure!


Did you know the word “twiga” means giraffe in Swahili?  At the Twiga Station, you can meet our giraffes, learn about them, and have a chance to feed one of them!  These gentle giants eat as much as 70 pounds of leaves a day.  Help the keepers by feeding the giraffes various types of browse.  Be sure to check out their amazingly long tongues!
