Zoo Tycoon 2: African Adventure is the 2nd expansion pack for the video game Zoo Tycoon 2. Developed by Blue Fang Games, work for the game began in early 2005 for a May 16, 2006 release.

New Content

This expansion introduces 20 African animals. New maps are based on African locations such as the Sahara Desert, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Drakensberg, and the Serengeti. This pack also includes Jeep Vehicle tours and related content from Endangered Species, in addition to introducing the Jeep Liberty. African Adventure expands on the animal behaviors introduced in Endangered Species: there are more realistic herding behaviors, and there are predator and prey behaviors between species. This expansion is the 1st to include live food in the form of lizards that are enrichment items for carnivores. There is a campaign scenario that will unlock a set of desert-themed objects if it is completed.
