GIVSKUD ZOO GRABS YOU
Enjoy a day out you’ll never forget. Visit GIVSKUD ZOO, just a 20-minute drive from Billund. Take a walk in the zoo areas, visit the exhibitions and travel millions of years back in time to meet 50 huge dinosaurs in the dinosaur park. Enyou that you can walk more than 6 km around in the park. Also go on a wild safari in your own car or hop on the safari bus and meet animals from four continents. All the experiences, the zoo - safari and dinosaur park, are included in one ticket in GIVSKUD ZOO – ZOOTOPIA.
Zoo by foot
Park the car in one of the walking zones of the zoo and make a safari trip on foot. You have the possibility to walk over 6 km with lots of great experiences along the way. Explore a lot of animals including the gorillas in their enclosure, where you can meet the silver back, his female gorillas and the cheeky youngsters. Take a walking safari among our large flock of Barbary macaques and watch the ringtailed lemurs jump from the trees and dash across the path right in front of you. You do not get any closer in the wild. Enjoy a fantastic view across the savannah, home to our gigantic rhinos and their friends from the African continent – gnus and buffaloes. In the Asian area you can meet elephants, camels and the new spectacled bears. Also remember to pay a visit to the tropical house, where you will meet our charming but dangerous predators, the South American giant otters. During most of the season you may watch as the animal keeper feeds different species. Check actual feeding times on www.givskudzoo.dk/en
Safari by car
Don’t forget to take a trip across the African savannah and watch as giraffes, zebras and antelopes cross the road right in front of your vehicle. Visit South and North America and say “hello” to nandus, bisons and wolves. Continue on your safari into the lion enclosure and feel the thrill as the huge cats lumber past right outside your car.
The tour is not completed until you have visited the biggest dinosaur exhibition ever in Denmark. The dinosaur park in GIVSKUD ZOO exhibits approx. 50 different life-size dinosaurs species – from the largest herbivore of all, measuring around 40 metres in length, to one of the most deadly carnivores, Tyrannosaurus rex.
Relax and play
Along the way, you’ll find plenty of places to enjoy your own BBQ or a picnic. Alternatively, you may want to try the eating options in the park; there are plenty of choices. The kids will love the huge playgrounds, which has plenty of space for them to run off steam. Also, the kids can get a thrill in the heights when visiting the Skywalk nine meters above the ground. This is the only one in Europe. During weekends and peak seasons they can also try to pan for gold and bake bonfire bread in the teepee camp.
The whole family will enjoy a wild day out at GIVSKUD ZOO - ZOOTOPIA.
