Toyota Elephant Passage

Toyota Elephant Passage is the crown jewel of Denver Zoo. It features two miles of interconnected trails on 10 acres of varied terrain and is one of the largest and most-complex elephant habitats in North America. Asian elephants, greater one-horned rhinos and Malayan tapirs can rotate among five unique, abundant habitats with a sixth yard exclusively for the tapirs. Mud wallows, scratching trees, shade structures and more than one million gallons of water for swimming and bathing have been developed to ensure active and healthy animals.

Visitors are able to explore and discover the rich history of animals in Asian culture, their complicated relationship with humans and the efforts of Denver Zoo and colleagues to protect their future. Toyota Elephant Passage is separated into three distinct sections: The Chang Pa Wildlife Preserve, The Schoelzel Family Village and the Village Outpost, each reflecting a different area in tropical Asia – an animal preserve, an urban center and a rural village.
