Nature Trek

Nature Trek is our newest Total Experience exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. Climb and crawl to new heights or explore the environment around you* for a fresh perspective on nature.

Additional $6 with Limited Admission Ticket.

Trek and Climb

We've built a village in the trees perfect for kids*, or kids at heart, to explore. Cross wavy bridges and crawl through elevated tunnels. Take in the view from a human-sized bird nest and balance on wiggly surfaces. The bridges, walkways, and towers are safe, fully netted, and offer accessible routes. Which means you can explore the world from a fresh point of view.
