Owner description: Enjoy a day in the animal kingdom – GIVSKUD ZOO is only a 25-minute drive from Billund. Take the family on safari in your own car or on the GIVSKUD ZOO Safari Bus. You drive across the African savannah, where zebras and giraffes have right of way. Continue into the Lions' Den and feel the thrill as the big cats lumber past your car. Throughout most of the season, the gorillas, lemurs and other species are fed daily. Children are welcome to help the zoo guide feed the camels. If you need to take a break, GIVSKUD ZOO has lots to offer the whole family – it's a great place to play, relax and have fun! Visit the teepee camp, where children can bake bonfire bread and pan for gold.Let the children run wild on our huge play area and stroke the goats. And don't forget to see our Tyrannosaurus Rex and the other fascinating giants of the past in our Dinosaur Park. It's the biggest collection of dinosaurs in Denmark. Welcome to GIVSKUD ZOO.

I was positively surpised that the Zoo was free for handicapped people. Giveskud Zoo allows you to drive among the great animals and you can walk through some fencings. There are actually quite a few old fashioned cages. The conditions for most of the animals looked to be quite OK. The variety of the animals is rather wide. Even if we visited the Zoo in the middle of July it was not too crowded. It is really good value for money and I can truly recommend it especially to families with children (6-12 years).

Being in Jutland, a visit to the Giveskud Zoo, located fairly close to Legoland, was an opportunity we decided to test. In many ways the Zoo carries the same set-up and presentation as the Knuthenborg Safaripark at South Zealand. In Knuthenborg the great attraction is the Tigers; In Giveskud it's is the Lions. So it you decide to visit such a safari park, make your choice - doing both is a waste of money. It would have noice if they had differentiated the display and the animals, but also here, rhinos, girafs, cattle, etc. remains identical. Also consider to have lunch before you enter, as the quality of the food in the diffent eats, are rather poor.

My daughter was a bit scared when we drove in the lions den, but soon warmed up when she saw the lion 60 centtimeters from the car, just yawning at her. She really enjoyed driving through and watching the different animals, not to pricey either,so no problem reccomending this place. Shut all windows in the car, flies everywhere..

Great to se lions, giraffes, zebras and many other animals from close view. Good cd commentary included to the fee and also booklets available in many languages (very surprised to see Finnish one). Check feeding times before going to also see some more action.

We have with family good time there. We spend 5 hours during safari. We were driving our own car around zoo and we parked car on every parking and go around. It is good idea to take with you launch basket and have break in nature and hear voice of animals or even see them.
It is one of best zoo I have been because we could see really fresh animals.
We could chance to see how they feeding wolves, elephants and we could get some news about these animals when they were feeding. Nice place to go there.
