Auckland Zoo has had plenty to celebrate lately, including the launch of the brand new primate habitat for orangutans and siamangs.

The first phase of the zoo's $60 million South East Asia Jungle Track has finally been completed following five years of planning and two and a half years of construction.

The new primate habitat will span one-fifth of the zoo and will also feature other habitats for Sumatran tigers, Sunda gharial (crocodiles), Asian small-clawed otters, fish and other reptile species.

There's also the adorable new addition of a baby rhino - the first newborn of the species at the zoo in 20 years!

Travel blogger Megan Singleton joined Francesca Rudkin to explain why the new renovations make the zoo worthy of a visit.
