Join us for a narrated, round-trip 35-minute adventure through Zoo grounds on our double-decker buses—and find out more about how we're saving species worldwide, and what you can do as an ally for wildlife. The Guided Bus Tour boards near the Zoo entrance, and it is included with all admission tickets and memberships. 

Strollers are not permitted on board the bus. However, we do provide stroller parking near the entrance of the Guided Bus Tour queue. We ask that guests remove personal items such as camera equipment, purses, etc. from strollers, and take valuable items with them. The Zoo is not responsible for the theft of strollers or other personal items left unattended. 

No reservation required. This is a first-come, first-served experience.

A classic way to enjoy the Zoo!


Ofrecemos un recorrido en español a la 1:00 de la tarde. Por favor hacer su reservación en la taquilla “TOURS & MEMBERSHIPS” en la entrada del zoológico.


Please Note: While we work hard to provide an exceptional guest experience, occasionally wildlife habitats, tours, restaurants, transportation, entertainment or other services change or close without notice and without liability due to unscheduled circumstances.
