I live in Utrecht, so it's just a short ride to Amersfoort. Great little zoo (not very big), with a wide range of animals and well taken care for both animals as well as surroundings. The white tigers are just awesome and there is a wide range of felines. Enough options to sit down and relax, watch the animals, have... More

This is one of the better zoos in Holland. Very nice for little children. Even for the adults. Very educating. Several places where the children can play.

At my visist i was surprized how nice and kid friendly this zoo is. The animals seem to be in natural cages mostly, and you can get really close. For kids there are all kind of ways to get close to the animals. Next to extremely safe playgrounds and easy overview. Plenty of space to walk. It's just a great... More

Get some bird food from the caretakers and feed these beautiful birds and let them sit on your shoulder or hand! Walk on the same level with the heads of the giraffes, see the rhinos run around, enjoy the view of the tigers behind glass (very thick, but incredibly clear!) and relax in the vast playing area where the children...

Zoo is great with most animals in more ore less natural surroundings. Nice different places to have lunch/diner or just a snack- something to drink. For children under 12-14 a great place.

This Zoo is the best for kids. They have climb routes almost by each sort of animals. Our granddaughter loves it so we bought a card for the whole year and mostly each saturday we bring a visit. Also good drinks and food throughout the park and also important clean toilets.

We went to the zoo to visit the DinoAdventure. We and our toddler had so much fun. It can be scary for children but it all depends on how you help them trough it. All in all a good trip

Get yourself a midweek contract and head down to the numerous play areas for the kiddies in the zoo. Little One loved the bears, owls, rhino's and koi the most - and loved the train rides.

Unlike most zoos I have seen, this one is in a wooded area which gave it a different feel. Chimps, Grevy's zebra, elephants are all represented. What I enjoyed very much are the very large and old tortoises in the dinosaur forest. Here you will find around 50 different dinosaur figures amongst the trees and undergrowth. Great fun. Also a...
