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.

  • I wanted after a year or 3 another look at GaiaZoo to see the lion and the lionesses. I have seen them and how! So close! What are they beautiful! The stiff staff we could not so appreciate, say even "Goodbye!" or "nice day!" back, small effort it seems to me. Because of the cold, there were many animals within but heck, since we had already taken into account. We have us well entertained. I have to say though that we had it all within an hour or 4, when we are yet again;) gone along "Simba"

  • Second time visiting here when over from the UK visiting the inlaws. It has changed since i was last there but for the better! My dinosaur mad son lived the dinosaurs and play area. And i think we managed to see every single noom and cranny. Lovely stop for lunch and a rest before going on. Safe to say the children slept well!
  • Fantastic setting, very large zoo, great greenhouse with plant and animal life. Great playgrounds for kids, and a huge birdhouse. The folly garden is very mysterious. Only problem we had was a closed foodplace in the off season, but this can be expected with places this size.
  • Keeps getting better and better. They've improved the parking and the route in the park itself. It's quite pricey. Even a year-pass doesn't include the parking fee, only for a reduced price.
  • Good facilities, lots to see with descriptions. Most animals are quite active.
  • The best in the area . Really well organised and lots of animals . Playgrounds are amazing
