    Get a close-up look at the place we care for the animals—and even glimpse a procedure in progress.

    Watch experts prepare meals for the park residents. 
  • Amphibian, Reptile and Invertebrate Windows
    Creep over to see some tarantulas, scorpions, millipedes and snakes. 
  • Science Center
    Check out what our resident scientists are working on. 

Affection Section is a petting zoo featuring goats and other domesticated animals guests can interact with.

As Rafiki’s Planet Watch will be closed, so will the Wildlife Express Train that transports guests to and from the area.

Guests can usually catch the Wildlife Express Train at Harambe Station, with the last train departing at 4:30 p.m. daily.
