Six Flags Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure will debut new animals, memorable guest enhancements, and much more for the 2022 season.

The 350-acre wildlife preserve located in Jackson, New Jersey will open on Saturday, March 19.

Spring animal additions include:

  • Sawyer [The Southern White Rhinoceros]

    Six-year-old Sawyer joins three adult female rhinos in the Afrikka section of the safari. Although grey in color, the southern white rhinoceros is the largest living species of the five species of rhino, averaging 4,000 to 6,000 pounds.

  • Three Reticulated Giraffe Calves

    Three adorable and graceful calves were born in the safari this winter and join the safari’s “tower” (group) of 13 giraffes.


  • Two sable antelope calves

    This striking, horse-like antelope from Africa boasts a tufted tail, mane and impressive, ringed horns that curve like a scimitar. Typically settling near water, the sable is an herbivore.

  • Two red lechwe calves

    The safari’s red lechwe calves, born onsite this winter, reside in the Wilde Plains section with vast array of African species such as giraffe, greater kudu, ankole cattle, dama gazelle, and more.

  • Two Asian water buffalo calves

    Two adorable Asian water buffalo calves join the Afrikka section. While they bear some similarities to their African cousins, the Cape buffalo, these are domesticated animals.

  • Throughout the spring, guests can expect to see additional babies including:

    American bison, zebra, aoudad, kangaroo, dama gazelle, blackbuck and more.
