Owner description: Visit Ree Park Safari and have an unforgettable time in the exciting world of animals. Djursland's big safari park offers wild experiences and activities among animals from 4 continents. Take a train ride across the Northamerican prarie or go on a Land Rover Safari, driving around among the many African animals on the savannah. Continue the day with an entertaining bird show where the large birds of prey fly just over your head. The animals get extra close at feeding time. You can see Denmark's only cheetahs hunt for their lunch, watch the otters flock around their food and a lot of other exciting feeding moments around the park. The children will love a ride on one of the park's large camels, and at the playground there's an opportunity to burn off excess energy - under watch of the striped Sumatra tigers that live just next to it!

“Good all round zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

We work in the zoo industry and so where ever we go on holiday it is a bit of a bus man's holiday, as we have to visit the local zoo. We went with a keeper from another Danish zoo , so it was great to have a guide. Nice welome at the reception and a good map of the grounds, we also paid the extra to go on the optional safari trip. The zoo is well laid out and signposted, and divided into specific continents featuring the animals that live there. Very easy to walk around and apart for the odd small hill the tarmac paths make it easy for people with disabilities. Range of keepers talks during the day, and although we could not understand the Danish commentaries, all of the keepers were happy to talk to us in English afterwards. Lots of volunteer guides on the park who gave you directions and told you what events were happening, very helpful and friendly. Met for the safari trip which was interesting as was 3 landrovers all joined together, much better than a tour bus, made you feel that you were on safari right from the start. Having been to Africa, any zoo safari always seems second best, but there was a nice range of animals that looked well cared for and happy, lots of photo opportunities and most people seemed to enjoy getting close to the animals. Have to say my favourite animal was the yellow faced marten, if you get a chance to watch his feeding time don't miss it, wonderful to watch him work out how to reach the food hidden in the trees. Also close up views of the lions at feeding time was very impressive, no wire in the way. Food for humans is sadly lacking though, the only choice seems to be takeaway style food, espeially a local delicacy of a huge portion of chips and chopped up sausages all piled on a plate. Very entertaining and a good way to spend a day.

“Best zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Normally do not like zoos ut this place is different! Great conditions for all the animals and beautiful surroundings. And it is even possible to get around with wheelchair/stroller most places.

“Real safari feeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have visited the place with friends with a small kid. I was positivly suprised how big the park is. When the kid got tired we hop on a safari car and off we went through the park between wild animals. We saw lots of action, the animals are obviously happy. We had fun with monkeys and saw lots babies as well. It was a great day and would go again!

“Superb grandchildren outing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

A place to see lots of wild animals, in plenty of space, at a reasonable cost. Our trip with three year old grandchild was really helped by excellent staff, hiring a pull along trolley/buggy, as its a long walk for a three year old if you want to see all the animals!
Highlights for her were cappucine monkeys and others in a free swinging environment, giraffes roaming and chewing, a moose mud bathing, lions, mongoose, and black bears. Lots to see, good fresh food at the cafe, and a great four hour stay.

“Simply the best animal viewing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

A family of three adults and children aged four and one.

The weather was excellent and the park is set in a fabulous varied landscape that shows off the animals really well while giving excellent backgrounds and a really good experience walking around.

The park is well laid out, with complete accessibility for wheelchairs and prams, good catering facilities and great spaces for picnicing and generally relaxing.

There are also cabins and tents for overnight stays, parking is easy and everything simply works for the visitor.

In many places, the animals are very close indeed and it was altogether an excellent experience.

Highly recommmended.
