The animals are situated acording to their habitat, which is nice. It is a fairly new zoo, with comfortable accomodiatons for the animals, so you do not have to worry about their well beiing.

A very pleasant experience for the whole family to visit Gaia Zoo. It was a bit early in the season so the temperature was not very high, but nice enough weather. Well maintained and with great diversity. Professional but still with a sence of proximity to the animals. Highly recommended by my children. On the very short list over places... More

We did not experience the same as some other reviewers, as we visited the zoo during a cloudy day. After purchasing discounted tickets on a coupon site, we decided to explore the zoo. Parking and a map was an additional 6 Euro. If you can, park outside the zoo's parking lot. Many locals do. A map is not needed either.... More

Very nice animal park. Childfriendly; a petting zoo with nearby the restaurant as the central point of the park makes it very attractive for the kids. And of course the Dinodome, a large dino themed indoor playground. As for the animals, they seem to be well treated and are provided with movement space, still they live in captivity of course...

Our grandson of 6 loved the visit. He was dumbfounded by the fact that he had a big bird of prey on his hand during the show. He liked the DinoDome very much and wanted to stay forever. Even our granddaughter of 1 loved to sit on the dino merry-go-round. The garden itself was nice to visit with the animals... More

One of the medium sized zoos as far as number of exhibits is concerned. Beautifully landscaped in the Limburg hills, showing a lot of animals in fairly natural settings and frequently allowing for close access or views unobstructed by bars or glass. Try to catch the birds of prey free flight exhibit if you can, where the birds pass close... More

Beautiful zoo with lots of nature. it's like walking in a park that also has animals. The living spaces of the animals are spacious and clean and the animals look happy. The employees are all very friendly and helpful and they really enjoy telling about the animals. I absolutely recommend visiting this zoo!

The zoo is extremely well laid out with lots of plants and trees etc and the majority of the animal enclosures are very large but you can get close to the animals via overhead walkways etc. The zoo has a large variety of animals including, cheetas, lions, gorillas etc. The food served in the food outlet was very good and...

Very nice modern zoo. One of the best in the Netherlands. Nice local area with animals native to Limburg, including a petting zoo. Animals looked happy.
