“Why does it look a bit deserted?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Having come a few times in the past, this time we felt a bit strange because the outside space obviously needs attention. Maybe is this time of year, I am sure the cold wet weather doesn't help as well but hopefully they will soon sort everything out! Other than that is a great day out for both children and adults and allow yourselves at least 5-6 hours!

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We entered the zoo on a very wet March day thinking 41 euros for two and a map was a bit steep, also because of the weather we were expecting the animals to be hiding away, however we were presently surprised. Excellent zoo, considering when we've paid more for a zoo and aquarium separately in some city's so afterward we thought it was excellent value, especially as the aquarium was equally as good. Highly recommend, the highlight was the gorillas which were great fun to watch.

“Wonderful Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We visited here during our stay to Amsterdam and we both loved it, my wife loves animals and zoo's so this was a must.Although it was literally freezing, -2, the animals looked like they were comfy and well looked after, all the exhibits were clean, some of the animals could rome around the enclosures, and the monkeys put on a good show, so did the penquins chasing around a shadow of a light-very funny stuff.The price for entry is well worth what you get to see.They have plenty of food, not too many places to use the loo though.

“Excellent zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We visited the zoo on a very cold Saturday in February and were very impressed. It is a very natural zoo and you can get up close to all the animals. Although it was cold the animals were quite active. It was very good value for money and we would go back again. Can't believe we have been to Amsterdam about 10 times and never been there before!
