Will it be the Hippo, Lion, Leopard, Girafe, Elephant, Springbok or Zebra room ?
You might wonder what is a Springbok ?
 The name "springbok" comes from the Afrikaans and Dutch words that mean jump (spring) and male ( bok) and describes  a medium-sized brown and white antelope-gazelle of southwestern Africa. It is an extremely fast animal that can reach speeds of 100 km /h ( 62 mph) and can leap 4m ( 13 feet) . Springbok is also the name of the SA Rugby team.
