Explore the grasslands of Africa.



The vast grasslands of East Africa support huge varieties of animals, from predators such as lions, to large herbivores including giraffe and hippos. Our African Savanna exhibit showcases these remarkable species that exist on these shrinking wild grasslands.


African Village

The people of rural East Africa co-exist every day with the animals of the savanna. In tiny communities across the grasslands, a number of groups live directly off the land, sometimes in competition with, but mostly in harmony with the wild animals around them. We pay tribute to the people whose lives are intrinsically tied to the habitat and animals around them at African Village, a faithful reproduction of a modern rural village of East Africa, perched on the edge of our award-winning African Savanna exhibit.
