Looking to get out of the house for a safe adventure? Now you can with the new Toronto Zoo Scenic Safari. Take a tour around the zoo from the comfort of your own car, with your very own zookeeper commentary to learn about animals as you pass through the variety of zoogeographic areas!

Guests will be able to see the zoo from a whole new perspective, as they drive their own vehicles on staff-only roads, pedestrian walkways, and even through the lion cave in the African Savanna. Keep your eyes peeled at every turn, like you are on a real-life African safari – only this time, it’s with a variety of animals from around the world!

Tickets will go on sale at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 22nd and they MUST be purchased in advance.
