Discovery Cart Tour


Sit back in the comfort of our expedition cart, as you enjoy a 60-minute guided tour of the Zoo led by one of our knowledgeable guides. As you explore the Zoo together, your guide will share stories about the plants and animals in our care, and how our conservation research is making an impact worldwide. The Discovery Tour route includes areas of the Zoo not seen from the Guided Bus Tour, and the small group size allows us to answer all your questions! Step off the cart for a closer look at some of your favorite critters, and snap some amazing photos, as you enjoy this unique Zoo experience. 

For all ages.
