Zoo bring African Savanna to Metro Atlanta: With Disney’s The Lion King still roaring from atop the box office, it’s a perfect time to starting learning about the fascinating animals that populate the African Savanna. And now, it’s easier than ever to do that – thanks to the opening of a majestic new addition to Zoo Atlanta.
African elephants, slender-tailed meerkats, and the common warthog are among the animals that will live in Zoo Atlanta’s new African Savanna, which celebrated its grand opening Thursday. The African Savanna is the result of several years of construction work at Grant Park, which included adding water features, the indoor Zambezi Elephant Center, and a brand new habitat for zebras, ostriches, warthogs and meerkats.
The Zoo Atlanta team recently welcomed to arrival of Msholo, an African elephant from San Diego Zoo Safari Park, who joins zoo favorites Kelly and Tara, a pair of African elephants who have lived at the zoo since 1986. Southern white rhinos will also be brand-new to Zoo Atlanta and to the African Savanna when they arrive later this year.
Entrance to the African Savanna is included with admission to Zoo Atlanta, which is located at 800 Cherokee Avenue Southeast in Atlanta. General admission is $24.99 in advance and $27.99 at the gate for those ages 12 and older, and $18.99 in advance and $19.99 at the gate for youth ages three to 11.

See recipe below:
- 1 lbs. of beef ribeye
- 1/3 cup of soy sauce
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 4 cloves of garlic or you can use garlic powder
- pinch of black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and sliced onions
Mix everything into this bowl and the meat that we prefer is ribeye that is paper thin.
Once everything is mixed, leave the beef that’s marinated in the fridge for about 10-15 mins
Once the time hits, its ready to cook.
Have the heat on medium or medium hot and once the beef is cooked, its ready to eat.
You can use any kind of meat or veggies with this sauce so if you’re a vegetarian, this will be a great sauce too.
