Go on a world tour through all continents

At ZOO Planckendael, you hop from continent to continent. Ready for adventure? Asia is home to elephants, lions and even snow leopards. Discover a whole new Sumatran jungle, full of exotic plants, small rivers and a waterfall, where you will be completely amazed by the subtropical atmosphere. There live the mysterious Orang Utans, who do get very close. In Africa, the Kinshasa boat is in the water, which is the ideal place to cool down while playing. The ring-tailed lemurs and moor lemurs love to be admired while strolling through their enclosure. Come and enjoy an unforgettable day among the animals! This summer admire life-size animals made out of LEGO° bricks with Brick Safari. Not to be missed!
