A visit to the Belize Zoo is one of the best ways to get an introduction to the animals of Belize, and to understand why it is important to protect their natural habitats. The zoo encompasses 29 acres of tropical savannah and exhibits over 125 animals all native to Belize. The animals at the zoo were orphaned, rehabilitated, born at the zoo, or sent to the Belize Zoo as gifts from other zoological institutes. The Belize Zoo is located about 40 minutes from Caves Branch Lodge. 
Enjoy a delicious lunch (not included) and then head over to the off road-Zip Line company located on the banks of the Caves Branch River- downstream from Caves Branch Lodge. The Canopy top Zip Line adventure is combined with the zoo to make a full day nature filled day tour. 
As you soar from tree to tree- like Tarzan, experience a bird's-eye view of the Belize jungle, and scenery that cannot be seen from the ground. Some lines are longer than others but all offer the same AMAZING adventure- cross over the lush rainforest and river and experience the thrill of the jungle.
You will be securely fastened to a harness that is attached to a cable by expert guides & platform directors.  With the push-off from each platform, which is situated up in a tree, the lines lead from one platform to another. If you're not comfortable with heights, don't look down!
Once you have completed the zipline adventure, your van will bring you back to the lodge for a relaxing afternoon at the pool or in the hot tub.
