African Savannah

Meet lions, ostriches and zebras!

A further habitat of tropical regions is the african savannah. It differs from the rain forest by its steppe-like character. Trees stand isolated or are missing completely in large areas. In the broad grasslands, large herds of gazelles, antelopes, zebras and gnus live and graze.

The savannah is characterized by individual-rich yet species-poor natural animal communities. The glaring light of the savannah exhibitione follows, the darkness of the rain forest exhibition, exemplifying the differences between these tropical habitats.
