Zoom Torino is a zoological park in Cumiana, Turin. Opened in 2007, it covers an area of 180,000 square meters and is themed on the continents of Asia and Africa. The animals at Zoom Torino live in environments that simulate their natural habitats, and include hippos, rhinos, lemurs, giraffes, and many more.
The creator of the zoo spent a lot of time in Africa and aimed to create an immersive experience where different animals share the same areas, just as in nature. There are no bars or cages here; instead natural barriers create an open environment for the animals and an exciting experience for visitors.
Zoom only houses animals born in other EAZA (European Associations of Zoos and Aquaria) zoological structures, and supports and promotes various conservation projects. There are numerous educational activities and talks at the park so that visitors can learn about the different animals and their ecosystems.
Zoom Torino is located in the town of Cumiana, not far from Turin. To reach it by car, enter the Torino-Pinerolo ring road and take the Piscina exit. From here, follow signs towards Cumiana until you find the park entrance. Free parking is available for visitors.
