WEST ORANGE - A safari-themed miniature golf course opened yesterday at the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange.

The 19-hole mini-golf course features 14 crafted creatures, waterfalls, sand dunes and a replica of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Officials say the new attraction is part of an effort to re-brand the area into a New Jersey tourist destination.

The Zoological Society of New Jersey will open the new Tropical Currents Aquarium at the zoo this afternoon. It is the zoo's first exhibit to exclusively feature fish and other marine life.
