It once took 80 days to travel around the world; now you can do it in one day at the Zurich Zoo. The division into continental regions makes it easy to learn about the wildlife of our planet – such as the snow leopards in their rocky Himalaya landscape, the spectacled bears climbing in their misty mountain lair, or the giant turtles swimming in the Masoala rain forest. Wander along a winding path through a 11,000m2 tropical environment with its exotic plants and animals. You can also enjoy spectacular views of the rain forest from the adjacent restaurant. At the Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park you can watch the family of elephants sand bathing, splashing around and swimming in an environment modeled after their Thai habitat.
