Sahara Square is a district for desert mammals in the city of Zootopia from the 2016 Disney animated film Zootopia.


Upon learning that desert animals are mostly nocturnal due to the heat of daytime, as stated by art director Matthias Lechner, the designers built lots of nighttime activities, such as casinos and a giant palm-tree hotel with an oasis surrounding it.[2]


Sahara Square is a sweltering desert oasis and resort district, designed for leisure, recreation and other activities for Zootopians. Its architecture is composed of intricate clay and rock, mixed with lights and glass textures. It has extremely high temperatures, reaching up to 102°F in one day.

It achieves its arid conditions thanks to the climate wall the district shares with the neighboring Tundratown, where the heat generated from maintaining the district's temperatures is released into Sahara Square on the opposite side.
