Hall of African Wildlife HMNS

Experience the entire African continent!


Unlike the traditional “menagerie” approach, this hall focuses on well-integrated themes of African wildlife ecology and conservation. Additionally, state-of-the-art interactives and video films enhance the experience.

Explore seven biomes, each of which highlights a different theme relating to African Wildlife Ecology.

Congo Basin: Explore uncharted wilderness in search of new species.

West African Tropical Forest and Ethiopian Realm: Examine how primates and antelope co-exist.

Serengeti Grassland: Observe intricate dynamics between predators and prey at many levels.

Lowveld region: Survey the ecosystem and food chain, using the full complement of predators, prey and scavengers.

Saharan Desert: Witness incredible birds migrations.

Okavango Delta: Learn about the importance of water for organisms to survive.

Discover the Excitement and Diversity of African Wildlife!


Over 120 specimens representing more than 70 species are on display, including 42 species of birds and 28 species of mammals. Many rare and endangered species are showcased, including Okapi, Lowland Gorilla, Mandrill and Scimitar-horned Oryx.

Additionally, many species rarely seen in museums are on display here, including Gerenuk, Giant Forest Hog, Guenons and other forest primates, and a variety of birds. The natural panoramas containing family groups of Aoudad sheep, Scimitar-horned Oryx, Greater Kudu, Rock Hyrax, Spotted Hyaena, Egyptian Goose and Great Blue Turaco are a special treat for visitors of all ages.
