There is excellent viewing at all enclosure and this meant that animals that are normally difficult to spot were visible. It cost 56 euros for 2 adults, a four yr... More

We visited the Zoo back in the days when it was brand new in 2005 and saw it had great potential. We went back now but were a bit disappointed.

Gaia Zoo scores every year as best zoo of the Netherlands. It is a lovely place where the animals live the most natural lives as possible in a zoo. It is a real nice green park, so also nice to just walk around in.

Nice place for adults and kids. Cool playgrounds and attractions for little ones and nice place for walking and watching animals for adults. Price is better if you purchase tickets via internet.

What a great little zoo! It seems they have recently done some refurbishments to the park. Some of it is still ongoing but it didn't bother us much. Gaia zoo may not have the most exotic animals on display but it seems the zoo has done as much as they can to make it as comfortable as possible for the... More
