Antwerp Zoo, Antwerp Reviews - Write a Review
This globally celebrated zoo truly is one that merits going to. Staff inside is benevolent and is glad to answer every one of your inquiries. The recreation center itself is exceptionally well kept and delightful. There's a variety of creatures to see, including some bigger creatures from Africa. They likewise have some exceptionally intriguing fish in the aquariums, and a dolphin performance that is a joy to observe.
I had a wonderful time at this zoo! It's not a very big zoo but there was still a lot to see. At first it looks like the animals have very limited space, but in reality several rooms are connected by a doorway, and the animals have options of staying inside or going into the outside area. The sea lion show was short but very entertaining. Their aquariums are also beautiful.
China lights was very well done! Everything was lit nicely but not crazy bright, and I loved the stories behind the exhibits. The snow made it not only beautiful but I think once in a lifetime! Can't wait to see the animals this Spring!
I greatly enjoyed my visit and particularly liked the number system they have to help you navigate through the zoo (though there are a couple locations that could be better marked for which direction to turn). The habitats all looked great and our visit happened to be during feeding time so we got to enjoy seeing all the animals chow down which was fun. All that said I did think the entry fee was a bit high which is the only reason I am not giving 5 stars.
A simply outrageous Zoo eloquently manicured with very engaging exhibits. All animals were well cared for and had some of the most elaborate habitats I've ever seen a zoo provide. The staff was friendly and accommodating for us English only. I highly recommend this for a wonderful outing.
