Looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city? A visit to the Bronx Zoo might be just the thing to revitalize your spirit. Here at Victory Mitsubishi, we’re big fans of the fun atmosphere, amazing animals, and relaxing wooded setting, and we think that you will be too. Learn more about the Bronx Zoo tickets, exhibits, and programs before you go.

Bronx Zoo Exhibits

There is so much to see and experience at the Bronx Zoo, with exhibits ranging from the Sea Lion Pool and Tiger Mountain, to the Baboon Reserve and Reptile World. We’ve chosen just a few of our favorite attractions:

  • Congo Gorilla Forest – Gorillas are fascinating, and in this wonderful exhibit you can see them up-close as they play and interact in their outdoor habitat.
  • Aquatic Bird House and Sea Bird Aviary – Caribbean flamingos, Magellanic Penguins, and tufted puffins are just some of the beautiful and exotic birds on display.
  • Madagascar! – The wildlife found on the island of Madagascar includes some of the most unique and rare creatures on the planet. In this exhibit, you’ll have the opportunity to see ring-tailed lemurs, Nile crocodiles, Madagascar tree boas, and more.
  • Himalayan Highlands – The mysterious snow leopard is the main attraction here. This majestic and magical big cat is listed as Vulnerable on the ICUN Red List of Threatened Species, and the global population is estimated at only 10,000. Being able to see them up close is a thrill.

Bronx Zoo Programs

The Bronx Zoo offers a wide array of programs that are specially designed for children, teens, or adults, as well as programs for visitors of all ages. From teen internships and summer camps, to the Bronx Zoo Nature Club and an Evening with the Flamingos, there are many opportunities to learn and explore the wonderful world of animals. The zoo can also host birthday parties. Contact them at 800-433-4149 to learn more.
