  • One of the best zoo for families with children. There are many different types of animals and birds, but would like to mention the polar bears and the gorillas. The large underwater tunnel with sharks, fish and turtles swimming around you and overhead is spectacular. The zoo is really huge, needs almost a full day and a pair of good sneakers is advised. Definitely a zoo I would recommend to visit if you are in Rotterdam.

  • Great zoo! You can get really close to some animals, and it has good looking enclosures that gives you nice field of view, a lot of times from different directions and angles. There are lots of big and small playgrounds for kids, that can keep them for a while (my friend's kid spent at least 20min climbing in and out of turtle shell, and we had to drag her away) Of course, there are various cafes and souvenir shops. Points for improvement: it will be nice to have even more toilets, some interactive thingies for kids were broken, not everything is translated in English (but at least all animal labels are)

  • Seen a few zoos such as Berlin and Prague but this one really surprised me! Loads to see and makes a great day when the weather is nice. The butterfly garden was my favorite. Also has a fascinating oceanium. There is a playground and a restaurant as well as plenty of places to grab drinks ice cream etc. lots of bathrooms around the park too. There is a bike parking by the old entrance and a large car parking by the new one. Zoo is also right by the center so well located. Highly recommended!

  • It's a nice zoo with cute animals and good food. I believe there are free maps but we couldn't get one because we were there for a school assignment. There are wheelchairs you can rent and it's very accessible.

  • The best zoo I have visited. It is well maintained , the animals have a lot of space compared to other zoos, and there are places where visitors could observe them from very close distance. I went for the polar bears. It is the first time I see them in real live and they were impressive. I liked the penguins and how playful they become at feeding time. It is the first time I see so many giraffes at one place, it was the first time I see Okapis too. The gorillas were majestic. I spent 20 minutes just watching them play, eat and waiting for them to watch me in the eyes. And they did! The Aquarium is also very nice. The water tunnel is something that makes the entry fee worth. There are toilets, cafes, train shuttle that take you to both ends of the zoo. This place is great for people of all ages!
