I recommend our Seattle area zoo, Woodland Park Zoo, which created one of the first large African Savanna Exhibits in the US, over 35 years ago. Now, its 92 acres are divided into bioclimatic zones, featuring different natural habitats ranging from humid tropical rain forests and coastal deserts to temperate rain forests such as we have here in the Pacific Northwest.
