Camp Cowabunga is an African safari in the heart of America. Wildlife is the center of the experience, of course; however, unlike any other zoo exhibit, Camp Cowabunga is also about the visitor’s experience of Africa, going on safari, and being a guest in one of the world’s most dramatic places.
Director Emeritus Gary Clarke led 140 safaris after his retirement from the Topeka Zoo. The exhibit is based on his experiences and his passion for the African continent. Many of the stories and the unique perspective come from Gary’s insights and those of his guests and the many African guides who became his friends along the way.
