Largest Zoos in the World
Sleep with the snow leopards at Sydneys Taronga Zoo
Located 12 minutes by ferry from Sydney, the Taronga Zoo is a fully sensorial Australian experience, engaging the eyes with a breathtaking view of the Sydney Harbour and Opera House before getting a close introduction to some of the wildlife of the Aussie outback. Winding down the scenic trail with a tour guide, visitors can spot giraffes, koalas, African elephants, Australian sealions, Tasmanian devils and over 300 other other species. Their shows offer an insightful look into the activities of seals and birds, educational talks by keepers, as well as a chance to nuzzle koalas, feed giraffes and meet a reptile. Those who book strategically could even find themselves staying a night at the zoo in one of their architecturallydesigned tents, alongside lions, snow leopards and meerkats and waking up at sunrise to the roar of a lion.
