Meet the Animals

Species List

While many of our animal residents are native to Africa, the wildlife park is home to hundreds of individual mammals, birds, and reptiles native to many continents and countries around the world, such as Africa, Asia, North and South America, and others.

Representing the rich diversity of the animal planet; predators, herbivores, and omnivores at Out of Africa not only display the rhythms of Africa but beautifully manifest the colors of the animal world.

Here you’ll find a current, full species list of our mammals, birds, and reptiles. Our lists include both the common and scientific (Latin) names for all our residents. Check back often for any new additions to the Out of Africa Wildlife Park family.
