Immerse your guests with the continent’s rich culture by decorating your attractions with sturdy mudbrick, colorful mosaic tiles, vividly painted benches, along with new kinds of foliage and African palm trees. The Meerkats will entertain your guests as they whimsically dig tunnels underground for their homes. The Fennec Fox will delight everyone will their enormous adorable ears used to keep cool in the desert plains. The African Penguins will waddle about and play with the new Disco Ball enrichment item, and the Southern White Rhinoceros will leave observers in awe. And don’t forget about the Sacred Scarab Beetles, who’ll scamper about rolling their signature dung balls.
