The 3-acre exhibit is home to moose wandering amid pine woods with their own small lake, mountain lions in a naturalistic rock canyon, the elusive Canada lynx, river otters playing in a waterfall and grizzly bears roaming the mountainside. The Gorilla Freeway at the Philadelphia Zoo is part of the facility’s Zoo360 initiative, aiming to enrich the environments of all animals in their care.

This 300-foot walkway passes 12 feet above the visitor path, giving the gorillas a way to explore and move between a variety of environments. Zoo Knoxville’s Boyd Family Asian Trek is home to Malayan tigers, whitened cranes, silvered leaf languors and white-handed gibbons.

Guests can observe these species while climbing a multi-level tree house or walking across a swinging suspension bridge. The 2.1-acre Simmons Hippo Outpost, an expansion of the already incredible Africa experience at the Dallas Zoo, features a replicated African waterhole habitat with a 120,000-gallon pool and a 24 by 8-foot underwater viewing window, bringing guests up close to the zoo’s Nile hippos.

The zoo hosts daily keeper chats where guests can get up close with the hippos and okapi during educational training demonstrations. The exhibit is fashioned after a traditional indigenous village, with unobstructed views of the bears from above ground and underwater observation points.

The African elephants have access to both indoor and outdoor spaces, including a 550,000-gallon pool, while visitors can observe these gentle giants from the comfort of a covered pavilion. This exhibit at the Detroit Zoo provides a home to three Amur tigers, Nikolai, Alaska and Kiss.

But if you're ready to take it to the next level, pay a visit to the seven Western Lowland gorillas that call the Bayou City home. Hidden in the back corner of the Houston Zoo within the African Forest is this relatively new habitat, which returned in 2015 after an 11-year hiatus.

Here, kids can enjoy a parallel maze letting them up close to the playful markets, and they can run and climb together. Kid favorites are definitely the Prairie Dog Pop Up, where you can come face-to-face with these little animals, and the climbable “bamboo” poles (to play like the red pandas, which you can also see here!).

Don't miss the Eagles Nest, which gives a birds-eye view of the zoo and a little thrill when you have to slide back down to the ground. 2300 Southern Boulevard Bronx, NY Book If what you've been missing from your zoo visits are thrills and a sense of adventure, you'll want to plan an excursion to the Bronx in New York City.

The newly opened Nature Trek and Treetop Adventures let kids and adults climb, slide and explore the zoo from a whole new perspective. Treetop Adventures (for ages seven and up) takes it up a notch with a challenging obstacle course nestled in the trees and a 400-foot-long zip line over the Bronx River.

The 30,000-square-foot exhibit is decorated with incredibly life-like murals, and houses more than 5,700 animals including a 15-foot-long saltwater crocodile, 15.5-foot Burmese python, turtles, Komodo dragons and yellow-spotted climbing toads. 8450 W 10 Mile Rd Royal Oak, MI Approaching this iceberg-like structure already makes you feel as if you're on an Antarctic adventure.

The stunning 24-foot by 8-foot underwater viewing window makes for incredible photographs and really up close interactions with these “river horses.” Transport yourself to the jungles of South America, Asia and Africa all in one 80-foot-tall, 1.5-acre space, complete with thundering waterfalls, swinging gibbons and exotic plant life.

Kids love crossing the rope bridge, visiting the adorable pygmy hippos and getting to step behind a 50-foot waterfall for views of this one-of-a-kind jungle. 1200 West Washington Street Indianapolis, IN If you're a Midwesterner, it usually takes a flight, or serious road trip, to reach the crystal blue waters of the Pacific or Atlantic Oceans.

But if you're not ready for a big beach vacation, the Oceans exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo will get you pretty close. The underwater dolphin viewing dome and shark touch tank provide the kind of interactive experiences kids are guaranteed to love.

As part of its 2010 updates, the exhibit added tons of interactive elements, like a snowy den for kids to crawl through, life-size statues of bears and cubs (so you can see how you measure up), and an arctic helicopter to climb on. Insider tip: If you're visiting soon, Africa Rocks is the zoo's newest exhibit, which features incredibly immersive and naturalistic design to help guests better understand conservation efforts around the world.
