These are great shots.

Your color choices on the adventure walls under the bridge really stood out for me.  And I also like the way the chairlift fits naturally in the landscape like it belongs there (doesn't feel like civilization taking over, if that makes sense)

Your Africa and Harambe signs...  custom parts or billboard?  If it's made from the shapes that's even more impressive, because I like the font and it seems pretty small and hard to do.

I like the steep thatched roof and open sides of the chairlift station. It looks very African-y to me. :)

Incredible as always! Africa is looking amazing and it is definitely a park with a mixture of inspirations. I can pick out some of your influences, and yet you make it original. I am excited and waiting for more!

THX guys - -again...glad you can enjoy this ride along with me.

As we take a closer look through the Africa area I want to pint out once again that I used a lot of blueprints and TMT items...so many that its almost impossible for me to keep track of them all, but here are a few of the more major TMT contributors that I have used in this land:
Joey Designs
paul-h1971 (Haplo)
Ms.RedNebula
Geekism
DeadEyeDuck
Woody
leafscott80
SirMaverick34
Mstankow
blackmanshadow
Daddy Poe

I will also do what I can to give credit to blueprints used as they show up in screen captures.
Please excuse me if I miss something or leave you out.

Yes! This is awesome! I think that giraffe might steal my popcorn though when I am on the train.  :P Well done!

LOL - I was torn between making more realistic animal enclosures to to try and hold off those that will call me out on them...but opted to just go with what was fun to build and not worry about safety, animal health, etc. I'm putting a little bit of thought and work into it, but just very basic stuff. Not trying to create a zoo park here.

Your innovation and dedication to realism is amazing!!!!! Every screen you show is so full of brilliant ideas and things I've not seen before. Truly breathtaking!

The enclosure is waaay too small for that many animals! Wrong biome- too lush and green! Zebras are social animals, they need a large herd to be happy! (joking) I love the animal enclosure and I agree with your reasoning to just have fun with it.

THX again everyone...more coming down the pipes.

Let's take a closer look at the chair lift station. I built this one from scratch, but I did use a blueprint fence for the queue area, but for the life of me I can't find it now in my blueprint lists to give proper credit.
Not sure why, the the queue kind of winds around some oil operations.
The floor of the queue is a personal billboard photo I took at DAK.



Personally, I do like the way this building turned out.









BTW - the trucks in this section of the park are 'Adventure Trucks Pack' by TheShaudi

The middle pic, showing the end of the chairlift structure, is my favorite. Something about the building materials, the slanted poles, the arches; combined with that background- really makes for an interesting and beautiful screenshot.

In the next pic, you've got a gap in the slanted pole. And you thoughtfully placed it close-up and near the center for the whole world to see. :P

Let's take a look around the central courtyard of Harambe

Here is Dung Beetle Bash...a faux flat ride "Ladybird Ride by stuk71" and more 'Adventure Trucks Pack' by TheShaudi



Marktstand Gebäck / Market Stall Pastries by Michel is included in this shot



The Warchief's Hut by Wikz plays a spotlight part in this section of the park, as guests can walk to and into it and the flume ride circles around it.



And here you can see 'CrocoDeli and Jungle Juice - Food and Drink Shop (Adventure)' by EbonyKnight which is the center food supply for this section of Harambe.

Wow! Wow!  Hey, how did you make those cool hanging lights you're using everywhere? I LOVE those.

Those are a disassembled light from Brandon's Outdoor Lighting set. I have been using this light (on a post) from his set all throughout this park. I just removed the post and added the cables as needed to hold the light parts over the paths.

Great use of Brandon's lights.  It's such a versatile set with endless possibilities.  The truck next to the pastry stand really grabbed my attention too, great theming all around here.

I also posted the bridge to Africa out there if you want to use it
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1681294528

Let's take a closer look at Crocodile Creek. This is a log flume ride that passes through a croc enclosure where you have some close encounters with the creatures as you ride through the creek. I guess its a bit hard to read here, but the smaller hanging sign says Crocodile Creek in Swahili.






Looking at the queue from above



In the queue

That is one fat croc in the first pic! Looks like he's been eating something (or someone) on a regular basis. Echoing Fisherman, I love how the winding queue passes in and out of shade and sunlight. And how the canopies are staggered about at different angles. The queue entrance (ticket taker) looks very Arfican-y as well.
