  • Beautiful zoo I've ever done! A point of saw deco, entertainment, food on site and diversity of animals is just perfect! The enclosure we air top for animals and they look in good health so so much better! A remake!

  • This is the best zoo I've been to. Beautiful theme gardens, large compounds (sometimes it feels like you are on a safari trip), we really liked the possibility to be right next to the animals. You can feed giraffes here, pet lemurs, pelicans and kangaroos are walking freely around the bench you are sitting at, parrots will sit on your shoulder if you keep still for a moment. The zoo is huge, therefore you need at least a day here. If you come from Brussels it is much cheaper to buy the ticket together with the train ticket from the Belgian Rail machine. It is a bit of a walk to come from the train station to the zoo (around 15 Mins.), but the path goes through a nice village and a field on the left.
  • This is a beautiful zoo! By far my favorite in Belgium, The park is divided into different sections 'like Asia, Europe etc.' that each have an amazing decor that represents it. With strategically placed restaurants throughout the park so you can always find food near you. You really have to attend the shows they have too, they're amazing. In my experience, I have learned that I can never finish the whole park in 1 day (you could if you would rush but that doesn't do this park justice, you should really take your time). So if you're a tourist you should stay in a hotel nearby and go for a weekend. You will definitely have a lot to explore!
  • I've never seen such a beautifully designed zoo. You don't see animals behind metal bars! Gardens and the architecture are artistic. The playground is fantastic. It's better to go there at the end of the visit unless you want to spend all day t here with kids.
  • Fantastic, huge Zoo, set up in various well executed themes like China, S.E Asia, Africa. Loads of space for the animals while still well observable. Plenty places for a well needed rest although a bit pricey. Reptiles place was way too hot to stay though and mostly shows turtles: cool but lil disappointing. Aquarium is nice but not matching up the quality of the rest of the park. Cool toilets though: check 'm out 😊 All lesser things easily made up by visiting the amazing white tigers, playful elephants, funny little monkeys and impressive show if birds of prey. Two days absolutely required in order to see all: you will not manage more than half the park in a full day! Definitely worth while your stay.
  • This is one of the best zoos we’ve been so far. There are different kind of animals, the lions walrus, elephants, giraffe were the kids fav. The pandas were fast asleep :-(. The zoo is huge and one day was not enough so will be going again.
