If you’re wildlife crazy, this Belize Zoo excursion with lunch will be a great tour for you.

To get you to this special place, often dubbed ‘the best little zoo in the world’ you’ll either be collected from your Belize City hotel, or the cruise port, and driven in a comfortable air-conditioned van to the zoo, which is located 30 miles west of the city. Spend some time watching up to 45 species of native Belizean animals - including toucans, the Central American tapir (Belize’s national animal), spider monkeys, and five kinds of wildcats.

There’s no need to worry about the animals being kept in cramped or uncomfortable conditions here. This compassionate zoo was created especially to rehouse 17 homeless animals back in the 1980s and often has new arrivals, due to animals being orphaned or going through rehabilitation. So you can rest easy knowing that welfare is at the forefront of Belize Zoo’s ethos.

Another priority here is educating visitors about the varied animals that call the zoo home, as well as the importance of protecting their natural Belizean habitats. Your expert guide will answer any questions you might have and will provide tons of interesting information as you make your way around the zoo.

Afterward, with your mind full of facts, and your camera full of photos, you’ll enjoy a delicious local lunch before being transported back to your hotel or the cruise port.
