I have visited many zoo's mainly to see if the animals appear to be treated well. I was quite impressed with Amsterdam with all that I seen. The grounds are spacious but compact and easy to get around. It is also well located in Amsterdam which is Tram 9 from Central Station and the tram driver always announces the stop. Avoid taxis at all costs in this city as a day tram pass is great and Amsterdam is all in walking distance.

With nice weather this place is a charm. Not nearly as crowded as the main parks with nice spacious pens with a selection of animals that seem happy, cared for, and clean. A very pleasant excursion.

The ring-tailed lemurs running free were likely the highlight of the visit, but so too were the various monkeys. The big cats and gorilla were sort of sleepy, so that wasn't exciting as it could have been, but it was a good day all around.

The Artis Zoo is a wonderful space with the animal enclosures very natural. The animals were active and the zoo keeper presentations were fun to watch. The food was also good which was surprising at a zoo!
