Although this zoo is small in area, there is a huge variety of animals to see. We visited here on an afternoon, and spent a couple of hours wandering around. The staff were so friendly here. My daughter was terrified of tarantulas, but the man...More

Found this and it's a great way to get much closer to unusual animals than in a normal zoo. Think eagles, skunks, and parrots all within touching distance. Nice way to pass 2 hours and easy cycling distance for a family

Not the biggest of places but they have a wide range of animals, from reptiles and spiders to meerkats and birds of prey. There is even a show about spiders and snakes, with the opportunity to hold them. The main language is Dutch but the...More

There is so much to see and so many animals to touch in this Oliemeulen attraction, that two fearless young kids really are a handful. At least, they were to me. A real snake around your neck or a huge spider in your hand is...More

I love looking at animals, and let me tell you, there are fewer places to better do this then the Oliemeulen in Tilburg. They have a range of beasts from small cats such as the ocelot, birds of prey and some adorable armadillos (not to...More

If you're interested in reptiles and small animals and you are close by, you should really have a look. It's a small place, but they manage to make it cosy instead of a quick run-through. Kids will have a better time than mom and dad.
