Africa Pathway Closed

The pedestrian pathway to Africa is currently closed due to construction on our elephant exhibit. Africa will only be accessible by tram, which is free to all guests during this time. Thank you for your patience while we improve your Zoo.

Native to the grasslands of Africa, the leopard tortoise is so named because of the pattern on its carapace or top shell. The fourth largest species of tortoise, adults can reach 40-50 pounds in weight and may live to be 100. You can find our tortoises near the crocodiles in Africa.
