Monarto Zoo will construct a new $17 million visitor centre as part of their ‘Wild Africa’ project expansion and has also announced the planned construction of a $35 million accommodation facility.

The visitor centre will include a cafe, nature play space, gift shop and potentially a restaurant or function space.

When finished, Zoos SA estimated it would employ 89 people and contribute $6.3 million to South Australia’s economy each year. The building works are expected to create another 136 temporary jobs. When fully completed, the Wild Africa project will eventually incorporate a safari resort, luxury camping and other experiences.
