When it comes to travelling, one of the best things to do is immerse yourself in the nature of your destination. Naturally, this extends to the wildlife, so it’s no surprise that zoos are one of the most popular tourist destinations.
What could be better than throwing on a pair of Kingseven sunglasses and taking in the amazing sights that the animal kingdom has to offer?
Singapore Zoo, Singapore
If you’re heading to Singapore, then the zoo deserves a high spot on your list of attractions. Renowned for its ‘open concept’ rainforest environment, the Singapore Zoo provides an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in nature.
You’ll find over 2,000 different species of animals to learn about. The Singapore Zoo was ranked in the top three zoos in the world by the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award 2018.
Tiergarten Schönbrunn, Austria
The Tiergarten Schönbrunn has been around since the days of the Holy Roman Empire and is the oldest zoo still in operation. It has been widely recognised as one of the greatest zoos in Europe, staying modern with reconstruction and expansions over the hundreds of years that it has been open.
In 1996, the zoo and its surrounding area were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you love the zoo but are also a history aficionado, then this zoo is perfect for you.
San Diego Zoo, The United States
The San Diego Zoo is the most-visited zoo in all of the United States. It has been a pioneer in the concept of open-air, cageless exhibits that reflect the natural environments that animals would live in.
The sunny climate of beachside California provides a great environment that many animals thrive in. San Diego Zoo also includes a botanical garden that contains over 700,000 exotic plants, so if you’re a plant lover as well as an animal lover, then San Diego Zoo may be the best choice for you.
National Zoological Gardens, South Africa
At 85 hectares, The National Zoological Gardens is huge! The combined length of the zoo’s walkways covers around six kilometres.
With the sheer size of the zoo, it’s no surprise that the National Zoological Gardens houses over 1,000 different species.
It’s a great place to see African animals such as African penguins, savannah elephants, wild dogs and hippopotamuses in environments just like their native ones.
The zoo is also home to a number of international animals such as Burmese pythons, Indonesian komodo dragons and two-toed sloths from South America.
