Bronx Zoo


The world-famous Bronx Zoo boasts more than 6,000 animals, from aardvarks to zebras, across 265 acres. General admission allows you access to many of the exhibits, but the Total Experience Ticket is recommended to see rides, attractions and special exhibits.

Visiting the Bronx Zoo

Some current exhibits include the 4-D Theater featuring Rio, Bug Carousel, Congo Gorilla Forest, JungleWorld, Children’s Zoo, Butterfly Garden, Madagascar and Tiger Mountain, all of which let you experience the wonder of wildlife in naturalistic settings and meet exotic, endangered animals from around the globe.

The Zoo Shuttle helps you see more of the campus, taking you from one end of the park to the other while the Wild Asia Monorail takes you on a ride past elephants, rhinos, wild horses and more.
