This tour takes us to the Belize Zoo! This zoo claims to be the first of its kind; a zoo in which all the animals are in their natural habitats. Getting to the Belize Zoo involves a drive through the streets of Belize City and on to the George Price Highway. The Belize Zoo is 29 miles away from Belize City and contains animals that are all indigenous to the country. The Belize Zoo may be small in size for this reason but it provides the visitor with an authentic Belizean experience.
Founded by an American citizen, Sharon Matola in 1983, this zoo not only showcases Belize’s unique wildlife, but also serves as a rehabilitation center for our animals and is an educational research center for wildlife in Belize.
Expect to get up close and personal with the wildlife at the Belize Zoo! It’s a small zoo, and all the animals are in their natural habitats. The tour takes you along the trails to check out animals such as the Harpy eagle, crocodiles, tapirs, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguars, scarlet macaws and more. The zoo is home to the rehabilitated, orphaned and rescued wildlife of Belize! It is a non-governmental, non-profit organization focused on wildlife conservation through wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education. A visit to this zoo is the best way to get an introduction to the animals of Belize, and to understand why it is important to protect the habitats that sustain them.
