Toronto Zoo Tours
About Toronto Zoo, Toronto
The Toronto Zoo is a wonderful tourist attraction. Kids and adults alike enjoy visiting this place a lot. Why is that you ask? Well, the Toronto Zoo has no less than 5000 animals on display. The Species range from rainforest dwelling animals to the inhabitants of the Tundra and everything in between. People not only enjoy watching these animals but end up learning a lot about them through the displays.
The displays have been enhanced and separated according to the original geographical location of each animal. Not only this, several rare animal species like Lemurs, Tamarins and Penguins have all been brought here to conserve them. Mammals, reptiles and birds all find a happy, healthy home here. It is a great idea to take kids here to teach them more about animals and conservation. A wonderful pit stop on a family holiday, this place is a must visit.

I understand that many animals are being helped at the zoo, animals who have been directly and negatively impacted by humans. This does not justify keeping those animals and birds that are healthy, in cages, and to rob them of their freedom. Animals are not alive for our entertainment. I found my visit to the Toronto Zoo incredibly sad and the attitudes of the people towards the state of the animals equally so. Perhaps one day humans will evolve substantially and positively enough to perceive themselves as equals to other life forms on the planet, rather than a perceived superior being, that allows itself to take away the natural rights of others.
So many animals - so little time! While I was present at the zoo for maybe 3 hours, I didn't have enough time to see all the different animals. We first started at the Giant Panda as they will no longer be in Toronto soon. We were very lucky to see the cubs and one of the adult pandas. THEY ARE SO CUTE (from afar). We then made our way to the Eurasia section of the zoo and saw the red panda (also cute), camels, a falcon, etc. I could go on for while about all the animals we saw in the span of 3 hours. Disclaimer - my family and I seem to take a longer time at each exhibit as I noticed that people come and go pretty quickly while we're still standing there in awe. If you enjoy wildlife and love learning, definitely go to the zoo! Oh and be sure to wear shoes that are comfortable for walking - you'll be doing a lot of that.
The Toronto Zoo is one of the best summer pass times in the city. Best enjoyed if you spend the whole day. Arrive early to avoid parking too far. The safari / Savannah atmosphere is great to experience with kids and adults alike. Animal displays are well kept. The reptilia exhibit is awesome. Recommend purchase the family year pass.
We are from Nebraska & comparing with Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, this zoo comparably very small (size, layout & varieties of animals). Visited this zoo because of City passes. We realized not many zoo have panda exhibit so there's another reason to visit here however panda exhibit at Washington DC Zoo have more pandas on display than this zoo. Overall we wasn't impressed because we seen better zoo. Still a good place to hang around with your kids and have a nice outdoor family time. They have a nice splash pad too so when the weather is hot, prepare to bring extra clothes/towels.
I love this ZOO. I've been here 5 + times in the last 8 years or so and i find new animals, exhibits and get awesome pictures. Yesterday I was face to face with a female Polar bear and it was awesome. I was the only person in the area when she went to lay down to take a nap. From there I got to see the Grizzly bears eat and play. It a huge place and I honestly don't recommend bringing young children as they don't appreciate what they are seeing and will rush your entire visit.
