“Excellent choice to entertain kids”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Convenient parking close to entrance. Surprising architecture, modern facilities for animals, less modern for visitors.

It's a nice zoo! The animals have enough space to live. Parkingplaces are there enough.

“Best Zoo in the Netherlands”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Will take a full day to see all the animals. Nice park to walk around. Can be busy in the weekends. Tip to avoid the crowd is to do walk in the reverse order. First take the train to old entrance and start from there..

“Best Zoo i have ever seen”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

My wife and I went to the Zoo on our short Easter holiday, really a must and we enjoyed this even more than the Keukenhof (even though it is difficult to compare as it is something completely different). The Zoo has in and outdoor areas, which was good for us as it rained... the aquarium was something special, a lot of different fish from the fish in the North sea (and the seals outside) to the tropical fish of the Amazone, the fish in the coral reef and not to forget the animals of the Artic (two types of penguin and close by also the polar bears)... of course they have sharks and other big fish too!. We spent more than an hour just inside this area... There are others such as the crocodile area, the tiger, the elephants and the apes/ monkeys. They have a large variety of animals, all the ones we wanted to see and the park is well laid out, with well maintained green areas. All in all we spent around 4 hours in the park, well worth the money (though it seems high when you pay for the ticket).
