GaiaZOO, Kerkrade

4.4
#1 of 35 in Outdoors in Limburg Province
See more than 100 different species of animals and take a stroll through the recreated natural habitats from various parts of the world at GaiaZOO. The zoo's habitats include Europe, tundra, Amazonia, Congo, and Namibia, all housing specific species that are allowed to wander freely just as they would in the wild. The landscaping provides a safe, unobstructed view of the animals from close up. Take time to watch everything from birds of prey, predators, and large herbivores to small and cuddly animals that you can interact with in the petting zoo. Kids can have fun at the zoo's Dino Dome, a large, prehistoric-themed, indoor play area. Because most of the habitats are outdoors, note that some animals may retreat to their shelters and not be visible on rainy days.

  • Gorgeous in green located Zoo! Very close, well cared for animals, zoning uncluttered, snack and drink in nice atmosphere, nice know questions between by ect hold is probably the presentation in the conduct vd gorrila's. That was brief and had some more content.

  • We had a kind of extended Petting Zoo expected but it was really a surprisingly beautiful zoo! The animals showed natural behaviour and they sit in spacious, green. We were often long to enjoy their behaviors.

  • The zoo itself is very nice, the cages are relatively large and well maintained. In addition, the Park is very clean. But: Price of admission is €20.50 per person, what I find personally very much. Also parking costs €7,50 per day. (You are obliged to pay€ 7.50, even if it still comes to 15: 00). The rest is also very expensive, a water bottle €2,40, Cola € 2.80. But otherwise a nice Park.

  • This is a great zoo. It is verry green and everything feels natural. Animals remain in large enclosures with lots of green and lots of play area's. They do feeding and information shows where you can see how they try to challenge the animals and keep them busy and occupied which is good for them. You also see these kind of things returning in other enclosures. When we where there there was only one animal we did not see. Al the rest where more than happy to show themselves. PS the raccoons are super cute
  • A very good zoo which kids would love. It's equally interesting for adults too. Much different from other zoos I've seen. Not many types of animals are crowded but whatever is there is really well presented and they are allowed to be as free as possible.
  • Very nice Zoo. A broad range of animals and very nice and animal-friendly. Take a whole day to visit.
  • A compact park with lots of green, a diversity of animals but an abundance of monkeys.
  • I have paid 28 euro not to see half of the animals,one third of the zoo was in renovation,and the road to get there is still in renovation more than a year. 7.50 euro for parking???? Really???? There are way better and cheaper zoos around. Not good value for my money.
