In the Zoo
As Canadian winter approaches, enjoy over 10 km of wintery trails at the Toronto Zoo and visit our Canadian and Tundra animals in their natural winter habitats. Then, escape the cold and enter into the warmth of one of our FOUR INDOOR tropical pavilions! Plus, enjoy discounted admission rates in the winter months as some animals are not visible in the colder weather!
Allow us to help you out with planning your trip this winter:
Eurasia Wilds Outdoor Experience: Be sure to stop by and get an up-close look at the beautiful endangered Amur tiger, the largest cats in the world. Plus, visit fan favourites like the red pandas, Steller's sea eagles in their aviary, or visit our Bactrian camels.
Tundra Trek Outdoor Experience: Braving the Canadian winter has never been so much fun in our 10-acre Tundra Trek. Home to our polar bears, visit Aurora, Nikita, Hudson and Juno in our polar bear habitat complete with an underwater viewing area. Don't forget to catch our other snow-loving animals including the Arctic wolves. Come prepared with your hats and scarves, but don't worry, warmth is only a short walk away at our Americas pavilion!
Americas Indoor Pavilion: Enter through our aviary to see macaws, then head to our primate habitats, home to the golden lion tamarin, and white-faced saki as well as our two-toed sloth. And if you're a fan of reptiles, insects and spiders, you don’t want to miss this pavilion with the Massasauga rattlesnake, giant bird eating spider and much more!
African Savanna Outdoor Experience: Even though it's cold outside, a few of our African animals still enjoy the outdoors. Depending on the temperature, olive baboons, hyenas and cheetahs may be out throughout the day. Also meet our pride of white lions, including Lemon, Makali and Fintan. You will also be able to view our African penguins in their indoor swimming area and visit the Zoo’s tallest residents, our Masai giraffes Mstari, Amani, Kiko and Matumani, in their indoor habitat.
African Rainforest Indoor Pavilion: Swing on by to the African Rainforest and meet our Western lowland gorilla troop in their indoor habitat. Then, just a few steps away are the pygmy hippos. This pavilion is also home to ring-tailed lemurs, Aldabra tortoises, royal pythons, the beautiful Lake Malawi cichlids and much more!
Indo-Malaya Indoor Pavilion: This pavilion is full of personality! Our Sumatran orangutan troop never cease to entertain as they swing and play in their indoor habitat. Don’t forget to visit our babirusa, Sumatran tigers, giant reticulated python, aviary birds and more!
Greater One-Horned Rhino House: Visit our indoor Greater One-Horned Rhino House to meet Vishnu, and Kiran.
Australasia Indoor Pavilion: Take a trip down under and discover some of the iconic animals of the Australasia region - from the hairy-nosed wombat to the largest lizard in the world, the fierce komodo dragon. Then explore the Great Barrier Reef and spot moon jellies, pot-bellied seahorses and colourful tropical fish.
