Your tour begins with a boat ride up the New River. Guides serve breakfast as you keep an eye out for crocodiles on the riverbanks. After you arrive at the dock, you’ll take a bus to the Belize Zoo, which provides shelter for monkeys, exotic birds, as well as some of Belize’s extremely rare big cats, like jaguars, ocelots, and cougars.

After the zoo, your tour continues to the Caves Branch River. Once you arrive, you’ll have a picnic lunch. Then you’ll take an inner tube out on the river—as you float through the caves you’ll illuminate their interiors with your trusty headlamp.

The Belize Zoo is a small non-profit zoo that serves as a home to orphaned, injured, and rehabilitated animals that can no longer survive in the wild. Founded in 1983, the zoo has played an important educational role – it has taught both local residents and tourists about native Belize wildlife and the critical role these animals play in the ecosystem.
