Gaiazoo, Kerkrade
(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • My kids loved the Dinodome and everything surrounding this zoo. Easy parking, small cafe dining options, and even ice cream available. The animals all appeared to be well cared for - major points! 
  • GE-wel-dig! The park is for me as a wheelchair user fairly well. Some paths may be more flexible for my back, but I just think so, there is much work/improved. The food is of course to park fees but still good. As far as the care of man. The animals; The animals much kindness from rays themselves. The Lions are at ease (still a big crowd puller) but also other animals seem none too short. Beautiful stay. The great thing is that you have enough moments that you must remain silent and search. well effe I find this adventurous. If you go to a park and know the weather in Netherlands, it makes sense that there is always something nasty. So did my wheelchair tires. But yes, that is why we live in Netherlands. As far as I see it are the sanitary facilities large enough in scope to with your wheelchair to use. In short: a park for large and small to suit all tastes. Definitely worth it!

  • A beautiful, landscaped Zoo in nature, wheelchair accessible. Interesting and spectacular feed presentations. Outdoor play in the playground and in the Dinodrome.

  • Nice park, nicely layed out and nice atmosphere
  • Nice zoo with many different animals. An experience for young and old!
  • The best zoo in the Netherlands. Gorgeous landscape, designed (making usage of the hills that surround the park) to be akin to the natural habitats of the animals; keeping in mind the animals should be well visible for visitors.
  • Loved how the setting is more like a landscape than a row of cages
  • It was good that animals where close, it was easier walking with kids!
