Burgers’ Zoo


Explore the world’s deserts, rainforests and oceans: in Burgers’ Zoo, the animals live in their natural habitats, and that makes for a wonderful experience. Sharks, tigers, snakes: you’ve never seen them this way in a zoo before.

  • See exotic animals in their natural habitats.
  • Learn all there is to know about sustainability and animal preservation in this unique zoo.

When Johan Burgers opened his zoo in 1913, he wanted to do something different. Instead of presenting animals in cages, he wanted to show them in their natural habitat. A hundred years later Burgers’ Zoo still doesn’t present animals to you in the traditional way. You  have to enter their habitat.


Lions, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, tigers, rattlesnakes, turtles, sharks, lizards and all kinds of bird species live in a so called ‘eco-display’. In these large scale living environments, animals and plants that belong in such an environment are allowed to co-exist. The different eco-displays at Burgers’ Zoo are: Bush, Desert, Ocean, Mangrove, Safari and Rimba.
