Auckland Zoo is home to the largest collection of native and exotic animals in New Zealand, set in 17 hectares of lush parkland and just five minutes from central Auckland, this is a spectacular place to visit which promises to be fun for all the family.

Here you can meet up with New Zealand`s only Asian elephant, Burma, at the ASB Elephant Clearing. See emu, wallaby’s, kangaroos and rainbow lorikeets all in the same exhibit as you stroll through the Aussie Walkabout and lorikeet aviary, watch the Hippos wallow deep in mud baths along the riverbank at Hippo River, enjoy a mini safari as you explore the Zoo`s Pridelands area where you can immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Africa, experience the lush tranquillity of a South American Rainforest, where monkeys swing just an arm`s length away, witness the Sumatran tigers as they play and explore Tiger Territory, take your children to KidZone, a fun and fascinating place to explore the ever-changing world of some of the Zoo`s smallest residents and much more.
