Hippo Cove Habitat

The exhibit was designed to be an extension of the previous four phases of the Africa exhibits at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. The theme is based on a design concept referred to as “immersion design” which attempts to “immerse” the visitor in the same natural habitat as the animal.
