There is nothing wrong with the park, it is well cared for But the animals are not that active, which is a bit of a shame. For the rest, we had a nice day with the small children, it is also nice that there is a playground so that the children can use their energy for a while lost Eat and drink opportunities are also sufficiently present In short, we recommend it for a day at Blijdorp

Where you want to go is easy to find. Clear signs. You can also pick up a ticket at the entrance. I wanted to see the gorillas, but their cages were being cleaned. I thought this was a shame, especially since this is the 2nd time this has happened and I haven't been able to see them. It would be nice if you know this in advance, so you can choose another day of your visit.

Very nice zoo

In itself a very nice zoo with some historical ambience. But just the newer sections like the Oceanium and the Amazonica. Unfortunately, all texts are only in Dutch. I don't expect everything to be explained in German, but English would be desirable.

Beautiful zoo with animals in a natural setting. Lively and lovely oceaneum. For the kids several places to play.

Really good day out. Lots to do so needs a fulllll day
