Fort Worth couples don’t have to leave the comfort of their city in order to experience an African safari. The Fort Worth Zoo offers a variety of unique experiences for couples wanting to let their wild side show. Overlook the African savanna for a chance encounter with a giraffe herd, hippos and rhinos in The Reserve, or come face-to-face with an alligator at the Picnic Outpost.
“Witnessing the ‘big five*’ is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you should share with someone you love, but have you ever had a sundowner? Having a cocktail of choice while watching the sunset in the middle of the bush on a South African safari (aka a sundowner), is another level of happy hour that can’t be beat.”

*In Africa, “the big five” refers to the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and African buffalo.
