Monarto Safari Park is home to more than 50 species of exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles, and one of Australia’s largest lion prides and giraffe herds.

Almost 70% of the animals that call Monarto Safari Park home are threatened with extinction. Zoos SA manages world-renowned breeding and conservation programs both in our zoos and in the wild.
