The African Savannah
The African Savannah is without a doubt one of the highlights of the Zoo de Granby. Its vast green expanse invites you to a contemplative experience! First, the impressive elephants welcome you, playing with their trunks to lazily tear up the tufts of grass on the ground. Giraffes, zebras and ostriches can be seen in the background, trotting under the trees or drinking from their ponds. There are many vantage points from which you can observe the characteristic wildlife of the African wilderness.
The Lodge and the lions' Indoor Habitat
Halfway through your African safari enjoy a well-deserved break in the shade of the stylish African Lodge's straw canopies. Satisfy a craving or enjoy the breathtaking 180-degree view of the savannah. Take a few pictures of the flamingo pond and venture into the heart of an abandoned Maasai village to meet the king of the animals: the African lion!
The Afrika Pavilion
You are invited into the forests of Eastern Africa. Here you are greeted by a colony of mandrills that will truly amaze you! Then the gorilla habitat opens up to offer a breathtaking view of the most powerful of all primates.
