Because of our work to build a better Zoo, or due to routine medical check-ups, some animals are occasionally taken off display. Check the current status and plan accordingly.

Development is underway on Lion Pride Lands, and construction is due for completion by December 2017. 

Animals may be temporarily off-exhibit due to routine veterinary check-ups or exhibit maintenance. Visit the Information Desk on arrival for the latest information.

The following animals are currently not on display:

  • Scimitar-Horned Oryx
  • Ring-Tailed Lemurs are currently not on display in the free plaza area, but can be viewed inside the Zoo circuit at breeding facility
  • African Wild Dogs are not on display Thursday 26 April 2018 due to veterinary care and animal management


  • Wild Rhino Tours are currently not operational for the month of April 2018 due to veterinary care and animal management. Please check back for further updates.
