Antwerp Zoo - Review

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.

  • We visited the zoo today, however I'm posting this review as we were quite shocked to see the amount of people coming right up to windows, tapping and jeering at the animals, generally being really disrespectful and most disturbing was people coming right up to the windows to take photos with flash on even in the dark nocturnal section! We saw some animals scared with this and running to hide, very sad to see. It's sad enough to see animals in small enclosures/boxes let alone the way people treated them like toys for their amusement. Obviously this is to be expected in a zoo somewhat but the whole time we barely saw any staff! Not even in whole sections like the nocturnal zone and aquarium - would have thought even one member of staff patrolling the area would help stop this behaviour. And in the nocturnal behaviour where we were upset to see cameras used with flash on we couldn't see any visible signs saying this isn't allowed which is surely the case judging by the animals' reactions? Likely there were signs but it was too dark to see them - maybe much larger and visible signs in many languages would help. We saw both parents/adults and children acting like this! We only speak English so it would have been hard to ask people to stop the behaviour without sounding rude, and honestly in British zoos there are generally staff to encourage more animal-friendly behaviour or very big signs. I have given 4 stars as the zoo made a nice change from all the shops in the city. The Flamingo cafe was nice though a bit overpriced (though to be fair not anything more expensive than the tourist areas in town), and the architecture is lovely. I would have maybe given 3 stars as some of the enclosures seemed quite small for some of the birds (lots if them flying against the cage/round in circles), bugs and reptiles but I won't pretend to know what size is adequate enough for them.

  • So very impressed with the zoo! We weren't expecting much due to its "city centre" location, but walking into the butterfly House instantly took out breath away, and let us know we were in for a treat. My only negatives, were a) the price of a small bottle or water from the machines (3 euros) and b) following the red numbers was great until there was a junction with no guidance. I think we saw everything. Lovely waffles in the flamingo cafe. Some amazing animals I have never seen before. Every one of them looked well cared for and happy.

  • One of the best zoos I've visited. The route is clearly defined so you can be sure not to miss any animals. We loved the elephants who were almost close enough to touch! We also happened to be at the aquarium during feeding time which was a treat. We didn't see any lions or bears tho - their enclosures were empty, not sure why.

  • Amazing Experience! Animals came right up to glass to interact. Great Variety of species. Parts could use renovation but a very special zoo. Beautiful gardens. I recommend give it 3 to 4 hours to see it all.

  • Beautiful park and animals. Lot's of space to chill. Buildings need a little updating and renovating but it's a fine place to hang out in the summer. In the evening there's some live music and possibilities to buy drinks.
