Overview

Enjoy a day in the animal kingdom – GIVSKUD ZOO is only a 25-minute drive from Billund. Take the family on safari in your own car or on the GIVSKUD ZOO Safari Bus. Get closer to the animals! You drive across the African savannah, where zebra and giraffes have right of way.Continue into the Lions' Den. This is dangerous territory! Feel the thrill as the big cats lumber past your car. Do you dare? The pride of lions in GIVSKUD ZOO is Denmark's biggest, so you are always sure to see lots of the big cats. Don't forget to visit our tropical house with our newest species of carnivores, the South American giant otters. See them swimming in their pool and watch them being fed. Throughout most of the season, the elephants, gorillas, lemurs and other species are fed daily. Children are welcome to help the zoo guide feed the camels! If you need to take a break from the animals, GIVSKUD ZOO has lots to offer the whole family – it's a great place to play, relax and have fun! Visit the teepee camp, where children can bake bonfire bread and pan for gold just like real gold diggers.Let the children run wild on our huge play area. There are areas specially reserved for toddlers – so Mums and Dads can relax while the children play. Take your children for a ride on the Safari Train. With the driver's help, children are even allowed to feed the animals. Small children love "Stroke a goat". In fact, it will probably become their favourite place in the zoo park.

The zoo is part driving course and part walking along trails. Nice to see the animals in large open areas and not caged. Several fine playgrounds and a dinosaur area for children. Beautiful picnic area in the midst of the park, restaurant as well.

Givskud Zoo is a great place to visit. You can get really close to the animals both driving and walking. The Baobab restaurant was really nice and good value for money.
