Grand New View
A historic transformation is underway
Construction is well underway on the all-new African Savanna, opening in summer 2019! Through this transformative project, the historic former Cyclorama building will be revitalized and reborn as Savanna Hall, a one-of-a-kind event destination overlooking the wonders of the new African Savanna, where African elephants and other wildlife will 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!
