We were thrilled when Six Flags reopened its Wild Safari as a drive-thru experience so that we could take our kids to see these majestic animals in the safest way possible. And now we’ve got yet another reason to visit and her name is Sierra. The new baby giraffe is the fourth giraffe calf born this year at Six Flags Wild Safari and she just made her way out into the Wilde Plains so visitors can spot her at play.

Sierra was born on June 2 to mother Muraya. She already weighs over 200lbs, and is over six feet tall. “She is the latest in an exciting string of giraffe births here at the safari,” says safari veterinarian Dr. Ken Keiffer. “We are thrilled that all four calves are being raised by their mothers.”

Sierra now joins the other three calves, Phyllis, Embu, and Soda, out on the Wild Plains, exploring the grassy land along with other African animals.

Earlier this summer the safari welcomed two rare tiger cubs to the Tigris Asiana section. So if you take a trip to the safari, be on the lookout for all the adorable new additions to the family.

Visitors can drive through Six Flags Wild Safari, taking in over 1,200 exotic animals from six different continents all from the safety and comfort of their own vehicle. Tickets are required and visitors can find more information about the animals and their habitats, purchase tickets, make reservations and stream the new audio tour at www.sixflags.com/safari.
