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.


Springboks at the Kansas City Zoo


These elegant antelope are native to the grasslands of Africa. They were named by the Dutch settlers of the southern African continent due to their habit of springing or pronking off the ground to display strength and agility.
