Grand New View
A historic transformation is underway
The all-new African Savanna, the first phase of Grand New View, opened on August 8! As the transformative Grand New View project continues, the former Cyclorama building is being revitalized for its new life as Savanna Hall, a one-of-a-kind event destination overlooking the wonders of the new African Savanna, where African elephants and other wildlife roam new and significantly expanded habitats. Other highlights will include a new grand entry plaza and more. We look forward to continuing to share updates on our progress!
Good to Know!
Now that the all-new African Savanna is open, find out more about what’s to come with the Grand New View project.
