The Asian Highlands exhibit at Omaha's Henry Poorly Zoo takes visitors through the foothills of Northern India to see Indian rhinos and Père David’s deer, and the Himalayan Mountains to spot sloth bear, Amur tigers and snow leopards. 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. This 5-acre exhibit at Sedgwick County Zoo is the third largest elephant habitat in the country.

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.

This award-winning zoo, situated a mere 12-minute ferry ride away from Tonga Quay, houses over 4,000 animals. Australian native wildlife species, including kangaroos and koalas, call this zoo their home, alongside many imported animals as well.

Tonga admissions tickets fees include talks conducted by its zookeepers, as well as a ride on Sydney’s only cable car, the Sky Safari, and various forms of entertainment. More than 500 species live at Targaryen, with Siberian tigers, hippos, pandas, and rhinos being at the top of most people’s watch lists.

Currently, the North of England Zoological Society, an organization financed by charitable funding, operates this zoo. Such animal-themed areas as the Spirit of the Jaguar, the Realm of the Red Ape, the Save Rhino Experience, the Chimpanzee Breeding Center, and the Somali National Park Painted Dogs Conserve are some of the most prominent exhibits of this zoo.

The zoo is divided into 11 ecological zones, with recreated habitats to house the respective species of each region. The Fragile Forest (mimicking the rainforest habitat), the Frozen Tundra (housing the polar bear and other Arctic species), the Primate Kingdom (with its 39 primates on their own, separate islands) and the Reptile Garden (housing giant tortoises, Komodo dragons, and venomous snakes) are some premiere attractions of this spectacular Asian zoo.
