African Safari Wildlife Park held a ribbon-cutting ceremony June 12 to celebrate the park's “50th Wild Season” with the opening of a new exhibit, Aviary Adventure – an addition that celebrates the park’s mission of providing guests with an interactive animal experience while promoting the appreciation of wildlife. 

When it opened in 1969, the park was named African Lion Safari. True to its name, African Lion Safari did have lions until about 1980. Then changes were made – including renaming to African Safari Wildlife Park – to allow for a more fun, interactive family experience.
