With a bigger zoo & aquarium comes more species of animals... and an even longer name. Already the perennial home to Arizona's largest collection of wild and endangered species, Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium celebrated the start of its 30th year with the Grand Opening of an all new 15-acre Safari Park expansion on January 25th, 2014.  After years of planning, permitting, construction, and at a cost of approximately $3M, the Safari Park is the largest expansion since Wildlife World Zoo opened the state's first public aquarium in 2008. This newest set of attractions increases Wildlife World's developed area to about 80 acres and includes another dining option for zoo visitors at the Safari Grill.  Visitors will appreciate dozens of shaded viewing locations that provide guests with multiple panoramic views of some of Africa's most recognizable species.  The safari park's new animal habitats feature a few known favorites and several brand new species including: greater kudu, rock hyrax, wildebeest, Watusi cattle, dama gazelles, and more.  It also features a new spacious African lion habitat and a variety of African birds and other ungulates.  Later this spring, plans include adding cheetahs and baboons.  Visitors can walk around the safari park as well as take an optional tram ride (for an additional fee) through a half dozen animal exhibits.  Entrance to the Safari Park, located by the zoo's popular giraffe feeding station, is included with general admission.
