Outpost on the Edge


The African Outpost has finally reopened! The Outpost is open daily from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. The menu has been simplified to a “grab and go” selection during the week, with a larger variety of grilled items being made available over the weekend, including our new vegan Beyond Burger.

This area includes a new sculpture garden, patio and outdoor safari dining area. The sculpture garden features three large bronze lion sculptures, as well as a shady spot to relax and watch the endangered Hartman’s Mountain Zebra.

A redesigned outdoor dining patio provides guests an expanded deck to enjoy with a new large, round thatched roof shade structure over table seating. This new deck offers a unique view of the Colobus Crossing exhibit — home to four playful colobus monkeys and three Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys. This exhibit supports conservation efforts for these animals and will also delight zoo-goers for generations to come.

This expansion was made possible through the supporters of our Leadership Capital Campaign.
