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.

  • Visit the two giant pandas in Pandasia
  • Come eye to eye with a gorilla
  • Ravotaapia is Europe's biggest indoor play jungle


The giant pandas Xing Ya and Wu Wen were moved into their brand-new Pandasia accommodation in April 2017. The pandas will stay in Holland for fifteen years, and everybody hopes for offspring. Giant pandas are an endangered species and even in zoos they are a unique attraction.
