Wildlife

ALL RANGES

Hatari Wildlife Park is home to some of the rarest animals on earth. Many of our inhabitants are classified as endangered. Our goal is to provide a natural habitat for each species that will allow them to thrive as they would in the wild. We believe this is the most natural way to experience their beauty.
