My hubby and I had a BLAST at Utah’s Hogle Zoo! When we got there we raced right over to check out the new African Savanna Exhibit...
The African Savanna is a new 4.5 acre, mixed-species exhibit featuring giraffe, zebra, nyala, ostrich and four majestic African lions!
Rolling grasslands, dotted with trees allow the hoofed animals to mix and mingle at watering holes – much like they would in the wild.
Now, Africa is closer than you think! We loved that we could experience tongue-to-hand encounters through their public giraffe feedings...
The female lions are so beautiful! We had fun watching them play together. Did you know you can hear a lion's roar from up to 5 miles away? We got to hear the males loud roar and it was really awesome!
Lions’ Hill features heated concrete, cool grottos, and atop the hill, perfect rock perches mighty enough for the king of beasts – two males, two females. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring guests nose-to-nose with the piercing golden eyes of these magnificent predators with the Wasatch Mountains serving as a picturesque backdrop. The lion demonstration area is presented by the Les Schwab Tire Centers.
My family is super excited that the famous Zoofari Express is back! The new C.P. Huntington replica is great. We like the wider, deeper train cars and enjoyed our train ride wrapping between the grasslands and Lions’Hill.
The African Savanna Exhibit is fascinating! We spent many hours there and even went back again at the end of our visit since we love it so much.
Next, we headed over to see the cute elephants! I remember going to the Zoo when I was a little girl with my dear Grandma. She would always buy me a ticket to ride the elephant. :) I absolutely love the elephants and had fun watching them!
After all of this excitement my hubby (big kid) was ready for his afternoon snack...
My hubby loves eagles, so he was happy to be able to get his picture taken in this eagle's nest...
My hubby and I really had a fantastic time. Thank you so very much for everything Utah's Hogle Zoo!
We can't wait until our precious granddaughter is born so next time we can take her with us to the zoo! It's also wonderful that the zoo is open every day of the year except Christmas and New's Year Day. Make sure and plan a visit, it's an incredible experience that you will not want to miss!
