It is a diesent place on an introductory level to classic animals with fantastic playgrounds. The zoo is friendly and have an average diversity of animals which are kept well and clean. Sadly the space given to some specied is quite small relative to some other nature parks especially concerning the wolfs. Regardimg visibility, the platforms are often made in... More

I think this is my fourth visit in about five years and for the first time I saw some changes/ improvements underway or even finished. This zoo had some sad news earlier this year the two white tigers died soon after... More

Nice park for the kids. the big playground (ravot apia) is a MUST if you are there with kids. You will enjoy the park when you love alot of diferent animals. They even have a "Bear Forrest"! ( it is just a little walktrough in the bear habitat (with real bears inside it))

I am not fond of zoos but recently took my granddaughter. We were all pleasantly surprised by the condition of the animals as well as the incredible enclosures. Well worth a visit.

Impressive entrance, bit expensive though. It was raining on my visit, not too much shelter. Great variety of animals, looking forward to the pandas arriving, unfortunately I was a month too early. I liked the dolphin show. Very impressed with ravotapia for the kids.

There is a huge indoor playground to keep the kids entertained (labeled RavotAapia on the zoo map). Sea lion shows happen twice a... More

I have already been to this zoo as a child and it made a rather average impression on me in the past. But it seems that in recent years a lot has been improved and today it is a really good zoo, holding its own against the massive competition of good zoo parks in the Netherlands. First of all it...
