Which fun worlds can you visit in this zoo:

  • Oceanium:

Enter the indoor water world and imagine yourself in the middle of a real ocean. Breathless you can watch for hours the underwater world above you. A wide variety of sea creatures will be part of you as you slowly follow the path, while above and next to your sharks, rays, sea lions and penguins swim by.

  • Amazonica:

Here you will find the largest butterfly garden in Europe or a piece of Amazon in the Netherlands in a tropical warm environment. In addition to a colorful palette of butterflies, you will also find typical other animals that also occur in the Amazon such as the anaconda, and turtles. Keep your hands in your pockets and do not be tempted to put them in the water because there are also …………. Piranhas! Do you dare to enter this world?

In Amazonica, the Queen of Water Lilies, Victoria Amazonica, is also growing. From a small seed, a giant water lily develops in a few months, so big and strong that a baby can lie on it.

  • Arctica:

Come also to visit the polar bear twin Sizzle and Todz. This brother and sister are born and know how to entertain the public with their funny antics. You can admire them from very close because they regularly swim with their noses along the glass of the basin where they regularly take a dive.

  • Savannah:

On the Savannah, you can come face to face with the animals that live in Africa on the Savannah, such as the giraffe, kudu, servals etc.
