One of the nicest zoos I've been to ....and that's a lot ! No cages, just natural habitats. Nice variety, take a whole day to enjoy it properly. If you have little ones relax and have some lunch at the cafe while the children enjoy the playground. There are a couple of shows but we didn't see them.

Nice day out with the family. Animals seem to be in pretty good health, habitats are well maintained. It's a day-filling walk if you want to see the whole park. Prices for food and drinks are very reasonable.

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
