Zu-Loop Shuttle Groups

A great way to explore Monarto Zoo for those groups who wish to explore the park at their own pace!    

We find this option works well for many groups who wish to arrive in their own vehicles.  Your group may be mixed and prefer to explore the park at the individuals own pace.  They have the flexibility to hop on and off the general public Zu-Loop shuttle buses at each stop to access our scenic wildlife viewing platforms or possibly attend a popular free keeper talk (scheduled at various times throughout the day) To see the full keeper presentations schedule click here.

Our Zu-Loop shuttles have volunteer guides on board providing an informative commentary on the animals and their habitats as you travel throughout the park.  Bus stops provide access to our scenic wildlife viewing platforms, and an opportunity to attend a scheduled free keeper presentation if there at that time of the day or take a stroll on our numerous walking tracks. Zu-Loop shuttles continually operate on a loop basis throughout the day.

Please note, as our Zu-Loop shuttle buses are also used by the general public, boarding is via a line up situation, larger groups may need to split.
