Experience nature's adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium. The facility is home to a unique display of flora and fauna from five continents, 14 countries, three oceans, numerous seas and rivers.
The 200-foot Wilds of Borneo Entrance ramp is lined with plants and animals representative of this region of the world for your enjoyment as you enter the complex.
The indoor adventure begins at the top of the Orinoco - Secrets of the River rainforest exhibit. The upper levels showcase mixed avian species as they fly freely throughout the vegetation, foraging for food, building nests, caring for their young or preening at the top of the 40-foot waterfall. Mammals, ranging in size from small Vampire bats to large Antillean manatees, share the rainforest with amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and fish.
The Aquarium portion of The Dallas World Aquarium includes marine species from around the world. Adjoining the aquarium are the outdoor South Africa exhibit and the seasonal Madagascar display. The indoor pathway continues at the bottom level of the Mundo Maya exhibit by way of a forty-foot long tunnel through the Cenote filled with sharks and rays. The stone pathway ascends into the upper levels where tiny hummingbirds and large raptors have an up-close encounter with the tall Tree of Life. The Sheraton Dallas Hotel is located only 1 mile from the Dallas World Aquarium, and offers great rates for guests traveling in the Dallas area.
