Trip to a small zoo which shelters many lions and tigers, mainly animals which have been abandoned, neglected or superfluous after circus shows no longer had use for them. Pleasant and informational trip, we ended up ‘adopting’ a tiger and a lion financially.

This zoo is not a zoo but a shelter for animals. However they present as if they are a zoo. So the experience is outstanding. Feeding the makis and the training simulator for tigers are fantastic to see. Great day out and supporting a good...More

This was an unexpected surprise during our recent trip to visit family in Holland. Even my uncle (who is Dutch) didn't know about it, and we went on the advice of his coworker. It was amazing. The animals looked relaxed and happy, and not stressed...More

We visited the zoo recently. We were amazed how much freedom and room to live the animals have compared to English zoos. It was wonderful to walk amongst them. The animals looked very healthy and well fed and cared for. Exceptional value for money.

We visited Landgoed Hoenderdaell with our 2 year-old son. It was the first time that he could see real lions, tigers and bears. The animals are kept correctly, they are in good shape and it was interesting to watch our son's reaction to the animals.

We tend to visit quite a lot of zoo's with our child, but this one does stand out. It's not crammed with animals; there's even quite some space between them - good for walking in nature. Feeding the small apes was definitely a unique experience...More
