The Phoenix Zoo’s new Cruise the Zoo offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive your car through the Phoenix Zoo. Designed to be approximately 30-minutes, the tour includes audio tracks that narrate your drive, giving insights on animals that can be spotted along the way.
The route will enter and exit at a private gate located in the far southwest corner of the main parking lot with queuing of cars in the lot. The journey takes guests along the Zoo’s outer Tropics Trail, past the habitats of elephants, jaguars, Aldabra tortoises, the Thunderbird Charities Equine Center and continues into the Zoo’s Africa Trail past rhino, hyena, and lion habitats to the front of the Savanna. The route meanders past zebra, flamingos, Monkey Village and winds around the Inner Tropics Trail to pass the Tropical Flights Aviary, orangutan and tiger habitats and then out of the Zoo.
