Milwaukee County Zoo Adventure Africa Elephant Overlook
The Milwaukee County Zoo’s Adventure Africa exhibit is the new home for the zoo’s elephants and other African animals. It was constructed to meet the new AZA Standards, and provides substantial enhancements compared to the previous elephant
area, including many “enrichment” features for the elephants.
The new exhibit includes reuse of the former wolf lodge as a new education center. The new space is much larger and allows for the zoo to add additional animals to the two elephants that currently call the zoo home.
The expanded area also has both a semi-heated outdoor space for the elephants to use in winter, and a barn in which the public can view the humongous residents on a year-round basis.
