Zoo Tycoon 2: African Adventure is the second expansion pack for the video game Zoo Tycoon 2. Developed by Blue Fang Games, work for the game began in early 2005 for a May 2006 release.

This expansion introduces 20 new animals, such as the meerkat and the pygmy hippo, and allows simple breeding between subspecies (the maasai and reticulated giraffe). It also adds several maps based on African locations, such as the Sahara desert, Atlas mountains and the drakensberg, among others. Zoo Tycoon 2: African Adventure also introduces other Jeep vehicles from the previous expansion, Endangered Species. Another new feature is more realistic herding and predator/prey behaviors. African Adventure is the first expansion to include live food.

African Adventure did not do as well as its previous and future expansions due to there being no new gameplay such as the jeep and the sky tram in Endangered Species, the trick training in Marine Mania and the 5 minigames in Extinct Animals.
