Ouwehands Zoo


Dare to rub noses with the polar bears? Or do you prefer to stand eye to eye with the Humboldt penguins in their fantastic enclosure? Spy on the unique, white lions from an exciting observation point and wander through the Bear Forest, where brown bears and wolves live side by side. Walk around as the orangutans swing above you or act like an animal yourself in RavotAapia, Europe’s largest covered jungle playground.

Sea lion sensation

In 2012, Ouwehands Zoo Rhenen presents the new sea lion show ‘Elements’ in the Blue Lagoon. This new sea lion sensation is full of excitement, unique moments and surprises. Our spirited sea lions, together with their trainers, put on a stunning show. They take you on a tour of the four elements of nature in a top-notch show. You must not miss ‘Elements’! 


Act like an animal in RavotAapia - Europe’s largest covered jungle playground. Play as if you were part of the legend of the pirate shipwreck, and climb and clamber around like the otters and squirrel monkeys. Go on a voyage of discovery and experience it all for yourself!
