This zoo is very big so make sure to wear comfortable shoes 👟 because you will walk a lot. It is a 1 day activity.

The animals are well kept and clean. We were able to see them all.

There are snack shops and even ice crean shops that give you a good variety of food.

Bring water 💧 keep hydrated.
There is plenty of information and the kids enjoy ☺️ even the playgrounds.

Great experience

Beautiful Experience with my girls, I have to say... I am not for zoo, but i really loved how all the animals had their own space and they didn't suffer the lack of freedom.

The animals seemed happier than in other zoos. even though it was quite busy it was just a few times that I felt uncomfortable with the distance betwen people.

Since this zoo is close by home i thought i would go there again. The aquarium/ sea life is beautiful, althought there's a lot under construction. It is great for kids!

I visited the zoo with my family. We spent almost the whole day here as the zoo is huge and full of animals (polar bears, fishes etc.) We really enjoyed ourselves.

Fully understanding that everybody is happy that we can go out and museums, restaurants and Zoos are open again, it was quite shocking to see how crowded it was. We chose Blijdorp for a small family birthday gathering, also to support the Zoo, as they financially suffered during lockdown. We booked tickets online, including a timeslot. The timeslot is for entry only, you can then stay as long as you wish. It was shocking to see how crowded it was, to the point that it was really discomforting. Talking to a Blijdorp-volunteer, we understood that 7100 visitors were allowed in the day we were there. Way to many!!! The 1.5m distancing could, in many many places, not be honoured. Nobody was wearing mouth/nose masks in the covered areas, which were places where 1.5m distance was absolutely not possible. Even outside it was at times difficult to keep 1.5m distance. There was virtually no control by staff. A pity.
Sorry Blijdorp, nice Zoo, but this was not good.

Everything is fine except the polar bear story. I sow on their web site they write a lot exactly about that bear, and they are very proud to have one, which is really great. But what is not great is that polar bears hardly can live in those conditions in the warm season. I really was happy that I am having the opportunity to see that amazing animal in live, but then I was so upset with what I actually saw. The bear was lying down in the shadow, very hardly breading because it was too hot, time to time put his/her head up, it was obvious that does not feel comfortable and that is too hot, after 40 -45min I went back to see if he moved, but even worst in that second time he/she even was lying completely in the ground with more heavy breathing. Due to the fact that exactly on their website there is a lot of data about that amazing animal, and it is very surprising knowing all those but not reacting accordingly. For me, that was something I didn't want to experience, because if it is already in captivity for any reason, then should have good living conditions or at least better...If they made for Amazonia animals a very warm tropical environment, I am sure that the bear can have a colder environment. Yes, there is a cold cave, how they are mentioning on the website, but through that cave, visitors are passing and the bear is still outside in the sun, or shadow, unless the moment when he/she is catching fish in the pool.
