tickets were 40 euros for me and my boyfriend, quite over priced but perhaps worth it because although I have been to many zoos, this was probably the best one because there were so many animals that I had not seen in any other zoos. However bit concerned with the amount of space that the animals have, which are tiny and surrounded by water to prevent their escape.

Great zoo.
Not enough property to expand on.
and not enough funding.
The animals need sufficient environments to be comfortable and happy.
Great staff.

Wanted to visit the zoo as recommended by a friend of my husband. It was a cold and rainy day but we can't unfortunately choose the weather but with lots of indoor houses ie: the aquatic center we were able to keep dodging the rain and educating ourselves at the same time!
At first we thought it looked a little unkempt as some areas were blocked off and we seemed to be getting nowhere fast but as we made our way around our fears were quashed and we really enjoyed ourselves.
The butterfly indoor section was beautiful and the aquatic section fascinating. Many large animals like giraffes and elephants which we don't get to see in British zoos very often were here to see in full glory.
We hadn't enough time so our visit was cut short and we had to rush at the end so please leave a whole day for yourselves to enjoy and get your money's worth. Reasonably priced for 3 adults ,was about 68 euros. Lots of incredible animals. Well worth the visit and will go again next time we are In lovely Amsterdam!
