The Bronx Zoo in New York City is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States and is home to over 4,000 animals from 650 different species. These unique and exotic animals are housed throughout the zoo's 265 acre property in both outdoor and indoor habitats and exhibits. Visitors can explore remarkable wildlife all year long and get up-close and personal with mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and insects in the urban jungle of the Bronx Zoo.

Visitors can enjoy the exhibits, rides, and attractions at the Bronx Zoo on their own or with the help of an animal expert on an engaging and informative guided zoo tour. From aardvarks to anacondas, giraffes to grizzly bears, Pygmy Marmosets to poison frogs, a spectacular species awaits at the Bronx Zoo in New York City.

Exciting Exhibits at the Bronx Zoo

  • African Plains: Take a trek across the African Plains and marvel at 400-pound lions, 18-foot tall giraffes, and endangered Grevy's zebras in this safari-esque exhibit at the Bronx Zoo.
  • Children's Zoo: Kids of all ages will enjoy this three-acre interactive exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. Highlights include the barn area where visitors can feed handfuls of grain to goats, sheep, and llamas, and a photo booth where guests can pose beside an animal and take the picture home as a memento from the Bronx Children's Zoo.
  • Monkey House: The best time to visit this indoor exhibit is during the daily primate training demonstration at the Bronx Zoo, when keepers give an in-depth and wildly entertaining presentation about (and featuring) the furry residents of the Monkey House.
