What is there to do?

It's time to enjoy a very WILD day out in Toronto with the aptly named Toronto Zoo!

Here, you can enjoy a fun day out with the family, and over 5,000 animals from all over the world! It's also Canada's premier zoo known for it's interactive education and conservation efforts. All the more reason for kids to love it! 

Kids, are you excited to find out all about the animals that call Toronto Zoo home? There are over 460 species, and a journey around the zoo is like a round the world trip, that you can enjoy over and over again!

Explore the African Rainforest and see pigmy hippos, pythons, meerkats, birds, lemurs, crocodiles and yes, there is even a Western lowland gorilla! It's just like you're there!

Whilst in the African spirit, a trip to the African Savanna will be sure to entertain! Kids can see animals they would know and love, including the mighty cheetahs, the adorable kudus, the tallest of giraffes, and the proudest of lions. 

Head to Eurasia and see the domestic yak, bactrian camels and cheeky red pandas. Perhaps it's Australia that will take your fancy. See the laughing Kookaburras up close, and the unusual tree kangaroo at play. There are wombats, sugar gliders, and even some live coral reef too. (Australia has some pretty amazing coral, and it's actually a HUGE part of the ecosystem!)

Let's not forget about the fun kids zoo either, as well as a ropes course, coursel, and Tundra Air ride!

At 710 acres, it's one of the largest zoos in the world, so it certainly looks to be a family day out FILLED with animal-tastic adventures. What are you waiting for?
