I have read countless threads on how Elephant Odyssey is a travesty amongst the greats of zoological design, and in some cases, I can see how. Poor sightlines, decent rockwork, awful design (the UFO/oil rig "utilitrees", etc.) I feel as if Elephant Odyssey could have been better implemented at the Safari Park, with the promised American Bison and Przewalski's horses the Zoo never got, and Elephant Odyssey could have gone like this: Monsoon India: Ditch the xeriphytic plants (implement them in Africa Rocks, save the Madagascan garden for later purposes) and use native Indian foliage in conjunction with tropical plants to create a "Wet Season" near the pool and a "Dry Season" near the Condors. Move the Jaguars and Sloth to a "Cloud Forest" exhibit (will be evaluated on later) Move lions to Africa Rocks in land formerly reserved for Zebras as connection to African Kopje, use Sloth Exhibit for Indian Mongoose and use exhibits for Lions and Jaguars for Hanuman Langurs, complete with lush planting on all sides Move the Tapirs, Guanacos, and Capybara to "Cloud Forest" (Basically, canyon below Bear Canyon or "Asian Passage" gets "Africa Rocks" treatment and gets converted into immersive experience from the Pantanal to the Andes Mountains) Use this exhibit instead for Nilgai, Axis Deer, Blackbuck (and have link to Elephants) Ditch "utilitrees" for Banyan Trees (protected, of course by planters) and add irrigation for grass Hide Elephant Management center (initially by creating hill in front, still working this out) Use Secretary Bird exhibit for Indian Jackals For Dry Season, demolish Domestic horse exhibit and create mixed exhibit for Sloth Bears and Axis Deer (like Woodland Park originally planned in their 1976 master plan) Connect to former Camel exhibit Move Condors to Safari Park, use exhibit for Indian Vultures Rename "Sabertooth Grill" to "Tiffin Indian Kitchen" Add links from Sun Bear Forest through Mesa Bridge, from Tiger River (again, still working this out) This is just an idea, I don't know how if this were to actually be implemented, financial resources would be found in order to do so. I wish the Zoo actually used this idea, as they would keep some of their veritable hoofstock collection, as well as creating an immersive experience for guests.
