Imagine traveling across seven biodiverse zones, along seven rivers, on five continents! You can do this without entering a time machine or super jet. Visit River Safari, home to the world’s largest freshwater aquarium, the world’s largest collection of freshwater fauna, over 6,000 animals, AND the park’s resident giant pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jia.
River Safari is experienced primarily on foot. Spend a day leisurely following paths along the world’s most significant rivers. Each is its own zone and ecosystem, and the diversity of river life is sure to amaze you.
- The Native American Ojibwe peoples called it the “Great River”. The size and ecological scope of the mighty Mississippi River is immense: it flows through 10 states, hosts over 400 wildlife species, thousands of migrating birds, and is the world’s fourth longest river.
- Travel across time zones and continents to explore the world’s longest river – the Nile. The Nile has fed massive irrigation networks, deposited rich sediments into crop lands, and been an essential commerce highway for millennia.
- If the Nile may be the longest river in the world, the Congo River is considered the deepest river. Some of the most colorful fish can be found in this river zone, including the Congo Tetrid and the Jewel Chiclid.
- The Ganges, sacred river of India and Bangladesh, is home to the beautiful and the deadly. Look for the long-snouted crododilian reptile, the gharial. Only a few decades ago, its numbers dropped by nearly 98%. Aggressive conversation has preserved it from extinction but the ghirial is still considered “critically endangered”.
- The Mekong River is considered the “Mother of all Rivers” to the residents of Asia. The Mekong travels from the plateau of Tibet through South Viet Nam, and out to the South China Sea. Giant freshwater catfish and stingrays inhabit the Mekong while macaques for age in the waters for crab and other river foods.
- Long River – the Yangtze River of Asia, is considered the world’s third longest river. Like the Mekong River, The Yangtze’s waters also flow from Tibet’s glacier plateau and become 40% of China’s freshwater resources. Chinese alligators – among the world’s most rare crocodilians, share the river with “living dinosaurs”, the long-lived sturgeon.
- The Murray River of the Australian continent feeds lakes and landscapes of tremendous variety. The Mouth of the Murray is often referred to as the “Food Bowl of Australia”. Like its land animals, Australia’s aquatic species reflect the unique, nowhere-else-to-be-found nature of the continent itself.
Your River Safari will not be complete until you have visited Giant Panda Forest to view the Safari’s resident pair, Kai Kai and Jia Jia. Enter a climate-controlled biodome and find yourself in the bamboo forest home of the giant pandas, the cat-sized red pandas, and the beautiful golden pheasants.
Extend your River Safari visit and book an Amazon River Quest boat tour (not inclusive). Float down the Amazon and observe a river habitat that is home to nearly 30 wild species of the Amazonian rainforest. You might see the Brazilian tapir foraging near the water’s edge or catch sight of the predatory jaguar. Step ashore and into the tropical aviary of Squirrel Monkey Forest to watch the activity of the rainforest’s most abundant monkey species.
Each river zone has been developed to provide the utmost experience of traveling the world’s great riverways. Learn about fragile ecosystems, species restored from near-extinction, and the myriad animal residents of each river zone. River Safari is committed to furthering the public’s awareness of conservation needs (and progress) as it strives to protect the world’s precious species and habitats.
