The Zu-loop shuttle bus departs the Visitor Centre at regular intervals enabling you to get on and off the bus at a variety of wildlife viewing platforms including, Giraffe, Rhino, Cheetah, Lion, African Painted Dogs and Chimpanzee.

Approximately 10 kilometres of walking tracks meander through the mallee bushland of the Zoo and can be incorporated with the Zu-loop service for those visitors wishing to be flexible in exploring the zoo.
