We have been to a few zoos over the years in Holland whilst visiting family and this one is good. It's smaller in area meaning less walking for small legs but still plenty of animals. Lots of playparks for little ones but also flat paths...More

What a gem of a Zoo. Really friendly staff who also speak English which is brilliant when you speak little to no Dutch. Animals all look happy and healthy and you can get really close to them as there are plenty of viewing areas for...More
