Burgers' Safari

Your visit to Burgers' Safari brings you to the cheetahs and the lion family, which you can view from a wooden observation cabin. However, you will also walk past a watering place for the animals, where, with a little luck, the white rhinoceros will quench his thirst.

Before your eyes unfolds the savannah landscape, where large groups of giraffes, zebras and antilopes, such as waterbucks, kudus and gnus, live. The enormous mass of rocks on the edge of the savannah is known in Africa as a 'kopje'. Between these rocks on an extensive terrace you can enjoy the view across the savannah, while you relish African dishes and drinks.

Burgers' Desert

Your travels have now brought you to the Sonora and Mojave deserts of Arizona and the north of Mexico. Depending on the season it can be either burning hot or icy cold. The plant growth will tell you that little rain falls here: cacti, agaves, yuccas and small-leaf trees and bushes try to evaporate as little water as possible.

In this rocky landscape reside many colourful song birds and turkey vultures, but you will also find burrowing peccaries, bighorns chewing the cud and bobcats lying in wait. On your travels you will see canyons, dry river beds, inclines of erosion debris and dark caverns: a world filled with venom, where also rattle snakes, scorpios and Gila monsters feel at home!

Burgers' Mangrove

In the tropics are mangroves, which are special because the tides regularly provide this part of nature with salty seawater. These woods, which are flooded with salt water, are called mangroves. The trees and plants growing here are rooted in brackish water and therefore have to possess special characteristics to survive in this situation.

In mangroves many species of fish are born and, just like innumerable invertebrates, live between the characteristic air roots, knee roots and other breathing roots. This biological wealth in turn attracts other animal species. In Burgers' Mangrove you can therefore also find snake birds, mangrove herons, river turtles and sail-finned lizards.

Burgers' Ocean

Let's dive! In an imaginary wetsuit you leave a tropical beach and start exploring the lagoon. Hundreds of colourful fishes greet you. A little deeper you encounter a giant coral reef with large murene fish, spotted sweet lips and groupers. Countless lower animals, like corals, sponges, sea anemones, sea urchins and sea cucumbers live here.

In addition many schools of fish that look for their food or shelter around the reef swim here. A little further awaits the dark depths, where coral devils live. Barely recovered from all these impressions, you suddenly are at the edge of the coral reef and look into the depth of the immeasurable ocean. Sharks disappear as quickly as they appear. You conclude your dive at the rocky coastland, where stingrays and spotted eagle rays swim right over you.
