Go on a world tour through all continents

At ZOO Planckendael, all seasons are charming. You can also admire the thick coats of some of the animals. Roam the continents. Snow leopards, American bison, Przewalski's horses and red pandas love a bit of frost. Peek inside the giraffe and bonobo enclosures. Enter the elephant temple. Let your offspring romp in one of the many play areas, such as with the koalas and the orangutan families in their new Orangutan Kingdom. They live in an exotic indoor jungle with gibbons and otters. This world offers so much more than just a day of fun.
