Against the backdrop of an African sunset, kids learn how children in the Melako village tend to their farm yards, plant crops and prepare food for the animals.

The savannah enables kids to go on wildlife patrol, counting herds and recording their observations. A custom-built wooden helicopter creates a birds-eye view so they look for injured animals. Plus they can load our plush giraffe, lions and zebra into the helicopter to transport them to the field hospital zone for treatment.

In the field hospital, complete with a surgery and research area, budding medics can diagnose and care for injured plush animals, before being moving them via canvas stretchers to the recovery area.
