The Toronto Zoo covers a massive 300 hectares and is home to over 5000 animals representing more than 460 species from around the world. It is actually the third largest zoo in the world.

The Zoo is designed with the goal of providing you with a great viewing experience while maintaining a comfortable and natural habitat for the animals. It is divided into six different geographic regions representing Indo-Malaya, Africa, Canadian Domain, Americas, Tundra Trek and the newly renovated Eurasia Wilds.

Toronto Zoo is the only zoo in Canada with giant pandas. They actually have two of these adorable animals, one named Er Shun and the other Da Mao.

Numerous extras are included in your admission at at no extra charge including "daily keeper talks, the interactive and educational Kids Zoo, Animal Shows and Splash Island." You'll also want to see the Zoo's NEW special exhibit, Wild Connections where you can experience animals in Augmented Reality.

Making its worldwide debut at the Toronto Zoo is National Geographic's “Air, Land and Sea”, an INDE Appshaker experience. "Centred around a dynamic, ever-changing watering hole, the experience allows you to meet a diverse range of animals from Africa to the Arctic as they graze, drink, and interact with the environment around them." This presentation aligns itself with the Zoo’s important emphasis of preserving endangered and threatened species through education and increasing awareness among visitors.

In fact, the Toronto Zoo is a national leader in saving and protecting wildlife to help ensure the rich diversity of nature for generations to come. They work with other accredited zoos throughout the world to help conserve and breed endangered species. Many animals come to the zoo through rescue efforts.

The Toronto Zoo is open rain or shine to the public every day except Christmas. You can easily spend a full day exploring the Zoo and the surrounding Rouge Park.

Rated 4.4 out of 5Toronto Zoo Star Rating

5 Star Rating Great place to spend a day. There are many exhibits. We went in the winter months, half of the exhibits were closed. But the ones that we saw were good. Will definitely visit in the summer. The zoo has a lot of amenities. At the end of every section, there is a bunch of washrooms, seating area for picnics and eateries. There were a lot of children's rides too. Must visit location.

5 Star Rating This Zoo is insane in terms of how big it is. I'm pretty sure it's impossible to do the whole thing in a day satisfactorily unless you cut some corners. I even went in the winter with less crowds and less animals to see and I still didn't have enough time to see all the animals. Anyhow, I'd really recommend going in the winter since there aren't any crowds and you can enjoy the animals as much as you want. Just be sure to bundle up.

5 Star Rating My experience in the Toronto Zoo is phenomenal. I have so much memories there since I was a kid. I went there many a times to see the fantastic and loving animals taken great care of. I never get bored when I come here. Remember to stay hydrated and active, there are just so many things to see and it is a big place, like you are in the wild jungle of different countries. Indeed a place ever so unforgettable.

5 Star Rating The Toronto Zoo is great in any season. I have a membership and go to the zoo throughout the year. Each season provides a different experience with the animals! The staff are friendly and informative, and you can tell that everyone really cares about the animals well-being. I recommend visiting in the off-season, not only are admission prices discounted but there are no crowds. And you get to see the "wintery" animals in their element!

5 Star Rating If you're in Toronto, this is a must see. The zoo has several different animals separated by "regions". The Tundra and Sea regions were the most interesting in my opinion. You can see that the animals are very well taken care of, specially because they run a lot of researches with them. The giant Pandas are very nice to see as well. Unfortunately, they're leaving Toronto in the next couple of months (I believe March 2018).
