Had a excellent visit, did not realise how big the zoo was and the continents and countries it covered with the animals they have, the aquariums they have in the Oceanium which also cover various oceans and continents

Oceanium (several large aquariums) and amazonica (a butterflygarden) are very nice to visit. And this zoo has a lot of lovely animals.

One of the most beautiful zoo in Netherland. Easy to get to the zoo as it's walkable from the Centraal station.
