Rhinoceros and antelopes

Year of opening: 2006

Expansive and interestingly indented outdoor enclosure facing the exposition of elephants introduces african inhabitants. Nile lechwe like to stay close to the swamps and quagmires, rare addax represent the desert species. Southern white rhinoceros and roan antelopes represent african ungulates.

In 2012, both indoor and outdoor enclosures were distinctly modified in order to move the southern white rhinoceros from the exposition of giraffes to here. First rhino to be placed here was male Kashka, whom we obtained from english zoo Malton in December of 2012. In the spring of 2013, our two females, Zanta and Naja, were finally moved here from the exposition of african ungulates.
