At this Animal Encounter, you'll have the opportunity to get up close with Masamba, our southern white rhino, in a special meet and greet area at the front of his habitat. You'll also get to speak with animal care staff about Masamba and the important role he plays as an ambassador for his wild counterparts, plus learn how we take care of him all year long. You might even have the chance to touch Masamba and feel his tough rhino skin!
