Hop from continent to continent through nature

The bonobos moved into their new, large residence in continent Africa and celebrated their arrival with a birth. Join Expedition Bonobo and study their behavior, like our scientists in the research camp. A large Kinshasa boat is moored here in the shallow water, a huge new play paradise. In continent Asia, the smallest elephants Tun Kai and Suki demand your attention. The Indian rhinoceros is expecting the birth of her little one any day now. Do you hear the clattering storks? They are characteristic of Europe. In America you can meet the golden-headed lion tamarins. Australia captivates with koalas and Tasmanian devils. Adventure in ZOO Planckendael!
