One of the oldest zoos in the world, this place hosts over 5000 animals across 950 different species. Okapis, polar bears, Siberian tigers, Indian elephants, orang-utans, … the animals here are pretty exotic and from all over. They are segregated in some areas by habitat type. The gardens themselves are pretty relaxing, so if you’re tired, head over there for some rest and peace. Make sure to watch the sea lions. Be prepared to spend a while here if you want to cover everything.

Beautiful zoo in the middle of Antwerp. With recent and ongoing renovations this old zoo makes its leap into an experience matching our current and modern expectations. While some parts are still outdated and new facilities seem not too emancipated (baby changing facilities only in the ladies-toilets of the main restaurant, really?!) the visit is a great way of entertaining your party for 4 to 6 hours and have fond memories of your stay.
Nice place with exceptional usage of space, very small but has many kinds of species. It's near the central station and easier to reach. Since it's small we can finish in 4-5 hours. Has lot of resting spots and few shows will make your day eventful.
My favorite zoo. Architecture is just stunning!!! Beautiful gardens and pavilions. Aquarium is just wow - definitely "must see", like the Dome with butterflies. It's not overcrowded during the day. In the evening they have a free live music session just in front of the entrance. There is a nice cafe (actually it's two, the other one is near the exit) that was open in September with disome food.
A very nice collection of animals, most of them in brand new habitats. The animals are taken care of very well. As a consequence they are active. Definitely worth the visit.
The zoo is nicely laid out & has an interactive area for children. The butterfly house is amazing. The grounds are beautiful & well kept. There are ample facilities & places to get a drink or snack. The zoo is brilliantly located right next to the Antwerp Central station, making it easy to get to, and a few blocks from the diamond district.
