Emmen Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Emmen
"This was the first Dutch zoo that focussed on original habitats with more room to move (in order to decrease the awful 'zoo stress') and putting animals together like on the African savannah. There are also themes like the Wild West, Africahouse, Oasia and special feartures like the shark aquarium a..."nd the butterfly garden. One of my favorites is the babboon section where you can notice that the behaviour of mankind and monkeys are very close ... The walking distances in this zoo are pretty large, also due to the idea that this zoo is divided into two sections. This will not please older - and disabled people and small children ("mummy I want to eat something ..."). But in general this is a great and innovative zoo with a huge variety of animals (my favorites are bison, maki and babboon) in a often more animal friendly space than usually.

"So much to see, one day is not enough. If it rains you can visit the indoor expositions and animals, the Butterfly Garden and kids can play at the huge indoor playground. If it's sunny there are so many more things outside. It's clean, spacious, the staff is friendly and fun for people of every age."
