Kalahari Brings Animals to Texas
To celebrate the announcement of the grand opening date in July, “Kalahari on Safari” embarked on a journey through Texas, bringing a caravan of 22 life-size stone animal sculptures, each weighing up to 10,000 pounds and measuring up to 10-feet high to their new home in Round Rock, Texas.
The one-of-a-kind animal sculptures, including 12 elephants, seven zebras, a mother and baby rhinoceros and a cape buffalo, made the 600-mile trek on four open-air flatbed trailers from Eureka Springs, Ark., through Dallas and Austin on their way to Round Rock.
The 22 stone sculptures were placed in their new home outside of the grand entrance to Kalahari Resorts and Conventions where they will welcome guests visiting this fall.
