DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF ZAMBIA'S WILDLIFE IN THE HEART OF
LUSAKA NATIONAL PARK

In 2022, GRI will open a unique and immersive Wildlife Discovery Centre in Lusaka National Park. This centre will not only provide free conservation education to over 5,000 children every year but it will also be the new home of our renowned Elephant Nursery, which will move in its entirety from Lilayi.  Fully accessible to all, the Wildlife Discovery Centre will welcome an estimated 40,000 local and international visitors each year to immerse themselves in interactive displays and exhibits that will highlight conservation issues and the efforts to resolve them. We aim to make a significant long-term contribution to the protection of wildlife and wild spaces by showcasing Zambia’s natural wealth, increasing environmental awareness and inspiring greater conservation stewardship.
