It's a Jungle in Here!

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! Welcome to Oklahoma’s newest safari at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum where the Oklahoma City Zoo’s animals partner with the best kids in town to celebrate the release of Lion King!

We spent our day celebrating the safari and embracing the animals we all love so! From a story time filled with mini safari adventurers to craft time where we made animal masks so we could be the animals, we had such fun preparing for Lion King. Our friends from the Oklahoma Zoo and Botanical Garden visited and introduced us to their animal ambassadors native to Africa. We learned so much about the environment they live in, the food they like, and got to pet them! A very special thanks to our friends at Standley Systems that helped with extra hands today as awesome volenteers!

All of us, adults and kids alike, are ready to see Lion King and we couldn’t think of a better way to get ready or it than by spending time with our community and learning about safari animals! Thank you to all who joined us today!
