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.
