GaiaZOO, Kerkrade

#1 of 17 in Outdoors in Limburg Province
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • Beautiful, large zoo with lots of different animals. There were a few animals we didn't get to see, but that was because the animals had lots of space, trees and shelters, as it should be!  more »
  • On a beautiful Sunday decided to pay a visit to Gaia zoo. Easily accessible and good parking facilities. The park was super our little daughter has sure enjoyed it and so do we. The shows were well marked. The only downside is that the price for a bottle of soft drink at the high end is but the rest had great day.

  • Nice clean animal park. Modern but very appropriate in nature. Very instructive explanation dmv information boards. Good restaurant with excellent coffee. The Dino carroussel was a topper for the children. Very nice afternoon!

  • Nice green park. The animals have space and more shade than humans. Food was good and drink-stands can be found all over the place.
  • 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.
  • The best zoo in the Netherlands! Great layout, spacious enclosures and a green natural environment
  • Great zoo, beautiful park with lots of green, not too crowded. The map is somewhat confusing sometimes.
  • Beautiful maintained zoo. The animals are well cared for. There are also a lot of extra childern's activities such as an indoor playground (dino dome), outdoor playgrounds, a parcours with robes and a mini zoo where you can walk among little animals (goats, ducks).
