Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • Excellent zoo with a wide variety of animals distributed in three things (taiga, savanna, and rainforest). Plenty of play areas for children and good food at reasonable prices. Tip: don't forget a parking ticket before returning to your car.
  • It was great. My son is 18 months and he loved it. Child friendly enough toilets and changing rooms for the baby. Restaurant had diverse meals for different tastes. also a play ground and a small farm. It closes at 5 though so we were left to search for a place to have dinner close by.
