Belize Zoo and Baboon Sanctuary Tour: This will be a day of exploring wildlife habitat, all within a few miles of Belize City. Your adventure will start just 30 miles from Belize City on the Western Highway at the Belize Zoo. Here, every species is placed in habitats that are similar to what their natural surroundings would be if they were still in the wild. Birds fly high in natural, enclosed canopies. Crocodiles lounge about in pools made just for them. The magnificent Jabiru Stork stakes its claim to lots of space and may even fluff its huge wingspan for a show. The Jaguar, Mountain Lion, and other wild cats blend into the space provided for them and may come out for amazing photo opportunities.
