Many think that the management and staff of the rain-forest zoo are far from perfect, but the zoo itself is wonderful. It is the best naturalistic zoo with amazing landscape design. They have put a lot of effort into creating the most natural habitats possible for all the animals living there.

The establishment is 70 acres and some animals, like orangutans, small monkeys, birds or turtles are walking among the visitors. You can also have breakfast ‘with the animals’ – meaning you can eat your breakfast only a few meters from the inhabitants of Singapore Zoo.

The oldest zoo in the world was opened in 1752. Tiergarten Shonbrunn Zoo is the best zoo in Europe and one of the very few zoos in the world that are home to giant pandas, four of them actually. The pandas  of Toronto Zoo are called  Fu Hu, Fu Long, Long Hui and Yang Yang. Both Fu Long and Fu Hu were born as a result of natural mating – very rare among pandas in captivity.

It was also in this zoo that the first elephant was born in captivity, in 1906. You absolutely must visit the  zoo’s polar bears, they are beautiful and adorable. The place makes a perfect destination for a day trip in Vienna.
