There’s a bird house. It has, among other things, four vultures named John, Paul, George, and Ringo.

I didn’t to give too much away, so these photos are pretty specific. You’ll have to check it out for yourself this summer.

Again, the Zambezi River exhibit opens to the public on Friday, April 29, 2016. It is included in the price of Zoo admission (or your membership). You can also rent out the space for private events.

You can learn more about the new exhibit in my other post about it, or at zambezirivercamp.org.
