Hi guys.
This is a great place, a reptile sanctuary for I believe mainly illegal animals or badly treated animals or confiscated animals that they have saved. Animals confiscated at the airport of Amsterdam. Plenty of different species, you could spend a good few hours walking around. So I did with my grandchildren. The zoo is located in a former school. A school for catholic girls. The school was initiated in 1908 by the dean of Middelburg.
The displays wind their way round this sprawling building with a truly impressive collection of rescued reptiles that either cannot be released or are staying there until they can be released. The reticulated Python one of the worlds biggest snakes was worth the entry fee alone. Other snakes both large and small, iguana’s, lizards, tortoises, spiders, scorpions and a wide range of other insects and reptiles are all there to see in large and spacious enclosures. Interesting, informative and entertaining. There is a questionnaire next to every display. My grandchildren liked it a lot.

Regards
Schliek.

Very nice! This summer we couldn’t go as much to the beach as we would have wanted. This zoo is an excellent solution to bad weather. We spent around 2,5 hours inside. The staff around is very helpful and can give extra information. You could feel that they were passionate about what they were doing.

I am quite horrified after reading some of the reviews above! we arrived to this place with no expectations! we were a family of 5 with 2 children, the so called 'zoo' is actually a house a with 3 levels, to make long story short: we paid €44.50, visited on a Tuesday right when the zoo just opened at 13:00h. the zoo claim that they house rescued animals that other wise will be left to die! the animals are from exotic locations such as South East Asia or South America....the zoo has a bad odour, hardly ventilated, many of the reptiles are held in an underground cellar like place with no natural light or air, the place is not well maintained, old and dirty, almost all the plants and the environment is made of plastic and fake plants, the enclosures feels filthy and old and stinky, the so called cafeteria is just an awful space with old plastic furniture, the Galapagos turtles are held in a very miserable underground cellar with absolutely no access to any natural light or air!....we spent 50 minutes.....awful place, not worth a visit and we felt cheated or actually ripped off. Sad animals held in sad miserable conditions!

This was an unexpected treat. The zoo has hundreds of rescued reptiles from all over the world. The volunteers there were extremely interesting and knowlegeable and were eager to answer our questions. We found the visit absolutely fascinating and learned a lot. It was good to see that these reptiles, which had been previously mistreated, are now well looked after.

Didn't know what to expect before we visited. The outside of the building is quite deceiving. Looks pretty small, but it really isn't. The displays wind their way round this sprawling building with a truly impressive collection of rescued reptiles that either cannot be released or are staying there until they can be released.The Reticulated Python one of the worlds biggest snakes was worth the entry fee alone. Other snakes both large and small, Lizards, tortoises, spiders, scorpions and a wide range of other insects and reptiles are all there to see in large and spacious enclosures. Interesting, informative and entertaining.

We visited the iguana sanctuary this week as we spent the day un vlissingen. it is located in the center,close to the beach and several bars and restaurants,very easy to find. the entrance fee is 8,50 per adult but it is worth it!they have several different types of lizzards and iguanas as well as different species of turtles and tortoises,spiders ,crocodiles and huge snakes! It is well maintained and animals seem well treated.it took us about 1 hr for the visit and we had a brilliant time!

Large exhibition space distributed in 3 houses with beautiful facades. The vivariums are very clean, very well adapted to the animals that live there. This kind of animals do not need real plants or decorations but dry areas, wet areas, warmth and places to hide. This is exactly what is done here for the well-being of the animals. As for the smell that some people talk about, it is common to this kind of place. There are plenty of drink machines in the building, very clean toilets and chairs for breaks. Be careful, there are a lot of stairs to visit all the floors. Kudos to the staff who run this place, I highly recommend it.

This is a great place, a charity and reptile sanctuary for I believe mainly illegal pets or badly treated pets that they have saved. Plenty of different species, you could spend a good few hours walking around. There was a lovely gentleman, who I didn’t realise was the owner until afterwards who talked me through some of the history and how the ‘zoo’ was set up. He also said that they do send the reptiles back to their natural environment which is obviously great, just expensive for them. This is a must go to!!
