      What is going to happen to the white lions once the African section is open.
    • Moebelle
      From what I heard the lions will be moved to Africa! as one of the first attractions in 2013. Not sure what will replace them though.
    • MountainBongo
      Does anyone know the hoofstock species that will be added to Africa? Also, since Africa will open in stages, what will the next stage be?
    • Moebelle
      The zebras will move and the rest are not even at the zoo (as far as we know). Also next year the next phase will open with two new yards for cheetahs and lions (current white lions) placed across from each other.


      Then after that (2014) the hoofstock and large bird yard and restaurant looking over the vista. Then after that (2015), yards for Nile crocodiles, Nile hippopotamuses, and African wild dogs. The original plans also included baboons, rarer hoofstock, meerkats, bat-eared foxes, a kopjie, and a walk-through aviary.
    • Kudu21
      No specific species of hoofstock have been given. The website mentions zebras and gazelles, and Thane Maynard has mentioned the possibility of eland.

      In addition to the lion and cheetah exhibits the African-themed restaurant and group rental building will open with phase III.

      Here's a list of the species I now suspect to be part of it.
      -Masai giraffe
      -Greater flamingo
      -East African crowned crane
      -Southeast African lion
      -Grevy's Zebra
      -Marabou Stork
      -Kori bustards (maybe not)
      -Nile croc
      -Nile hippo
      -African wild dog

      Actually the space for Africa doesnt even look bigger then Wildlife Canyon. How will they fit all of Those species?
    • Moebelle
      Well there are already 3 species (giraffe, flamingo, crane), in there, which means that 5 (cats, hippos, crocs, and dogs) other medium sized exhibits and the large savanna one. It is a total of 8 acres and also by looking at the map and being at the zoo, I would say the zoo could fit 4 Wildlife Canyons in there. This is what I think.
      Here's the original plans.

      So the restaurants will be the now birthday building. The lion exhibit would probably take up about a quarter of the hoofstock. The kopjie could be a place for crocodiles but the Nile theme of it wouldn't fit since it would further away from the hippos. On the top it shows the baboons tkaing over the Botanical Center, as the greenest zoo is America, I doubt they would do make those plans. As for the possible fox or meerkat exhibit, this would have probably not fit because the path from the center to the Zoo Cafe (future African restaurant) is very narrow.

      What does anybody think of this preview of my own zoo map that I've been working on?
