We went there to see animals. It was a sunny, beautiful day and we took the tickets in advance but on the website they didn t alert no one that they are maiking a film with fake giraffes. The real giraffes and rino were closed inside. We paid a lot for that... Very disapointed.. After we sent an email to... More

We love the stroll throughout all the different areas. Plenty of signage with descriptions in English, Dutch and German. Very impressed with the varied viewing areas but would have... More

My kids loved the Dinodome and everything surrounding this zoo. Easy parking, small cafe dining options, and even ice cream available. The animals all appeared to be well cared for - major points!

A nice zoo, not very special from others. Enough possibilities for (little) children. Nice and spacious animal shelters. I've seen better zoo's but this one is ok. We went with discount tickets (2 for 1), I'm not sure if I will go when we had to pay full price + additional parking fee.

My son and I used to take a weekly trip to the zoo here. We loved it. It was fun for him to see the animals and play in the big inside park, which was great on warm days. We dined over the giraffe pit and had a great time every time we went. It is definitely worth a trip... More

I make a point of visiting this zoo every time I am in Europe. I have been to zoos in numerous countries and states, including the highly acclaimed San Diego Zoo, but have yet to find one that is nicer than this one. The animals are in large, natural enclosures. It is easy to see most of the animals up... More

I've visited quite some zoos, but this one is still my favourite. I've come to GaiaZoo at least once a year since they opened 10 years ago, and it's still a great place to visit. The nicest thing about it is that it keeps changing, every time you can see new things or animals. The zoo is not very big,... More

Really special. Entry through a brilliant natural area. The whole place is themed on biomes and biospheres, hence the name Gaia. Dinosaur area would drive a normal kid to extreme happiness. Dad's like me also get a secret pleasure viewing the life size brachiosaurus and T Rex. Special mention of waffle joint Sequoia, pictured. Modest looking but tasty and friendly.

This is a very nice and beautiful zoo divided in 4 different zones and themes such as the Amazone and the Savane. Don't look for tigers or elephants as they not really fit in these themes. The walking paths and the views are beautiful. The animal enclosures look really like the natural habitat of the animals and I especially liked... More

We had a really good day out at the zoo. There are a large variety of animals to see. The enclosures are well kept and look comfortable for the animals. 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
