The Belize Zoo, located an hour from Ka’ana en route to Belize City, is a unique stop for animal lovers. Here, one can see more than 125 types of animals that are native to Belize. The zoo is set around 29 acres of tropical savanna, providing a natural setting for the wildlife living there. Visitors learn about the unique qualities of these creatures as well as the importance of protecting their natural habitat.
With a chance to view jaguars, tapirs, howler monkeys, and margays, The Belize Zoo is a must-see. And for a truly unbelievable experience, you can hand-feed Junior, a young jaguar who was taken in when his mother was shot and who is fast becoming the star of the zoo. This activity has to be arranged in advance, and you will be thoroughly safe in a cage within the jaguar’s cage.
A visit to The Belize Zoo can be combined with other tours.
