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.

Shark at Burgers Zoo


Lions, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, tigers, rattlesnakes, turtles, sharks, lizards and all kinds of bird species live in a so called ‘eco-display’.
