Africa is far from Indiana. It is across the Atlantic Ocean. Do you know how long it will take to get from Louisville, KY to Johannesburg, Africa?
Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti National Park is one of the world's major wildlife reserves. It is the natural habitat of animals that we see at the zoo.
Animals you will find in Serengeti National Park...

What Can I Hear on a Safari?
* A giraffe has the same seven vertebrae in its neck as most mammals do, no more. However, a giraffe’s vertebrae are much larger.

* Giraffes swing their long necks in combat with one another to establish dominance.

* A giraffe’s tongue may be up to 21 inches long.
* Lions sleep and rest about 20 hours a day.

* Lions can go over five days without water.

* Males with darker, longer manes are stronger and healthier than those with lighter, shorter manes.
* A zebra’s teeth keep growing its entire life, but get worn down by constant grazing and chewing.

* No two sets of zebra stripes are exactly alike, much like human fingerprints.

* A zebra’s night vision is as good as an owl’s.
