The savannas and plains of the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica have a new attraction in the name of Africa Mia (My Africa). As the name implies, Africa Mia is a safari-like open-jeep tour operated on its private reserve which is populated with a wide variety of non-native species (most are obviously from Africa) which now call Costa Rica home. This reserve sits on approximately 250 acres providing plenty of area for the animals to roam and definitely has an African feel, especially in the dry season when the landscape is picture perfect. Roaming the grassy plains of Africa Mia are mostly African species of animals, but don’t expect to see any lions, hyenas, or cheetahs, because all the animals are herbivores, so there’s plenty of antelope, zebras, giraffes and elands roaming around, but the trip does provide a sense of being somewhere in the grassy plains of Africa so it shouldn’t be missed if you’re in the area.

Admission includes a 90-minute guided tour

Africa Mia is located about 5 miles south of Liberia just off the Interamerican highway.
