The Cincinnati Zoo introduced its grassy-plained Africa exhibit in June 2013, the most ambitious wildlife exhibit in zoo history. Currently home to cheetahs, a male lion and giraffes, among others, the next phase of building out the Africa exhibit will include the addition of an African wild dog, meerkat, gazelle, lesser kudu, impala, Ruppell’s vulture, crowned crane and kori bustard. The hippo exhibit will be the final piece of Africa. The zoo is still raising funds to finish the pool for the hippo exhibit, in which they hope to put a male and female pair.
