Enjoyed our experience. Lots of animals and took some great photos. Lots to do if you have children with plenty of play areas and picnic/cafe areas . Lots of walking! Wear comfy shoes! Not so busy when we went so could get up close to the enclosures. My daughters especially loved the red pandas and the Oceanatic tunnel.

It was really sad experience to watch the animals in such a small spaces, it was rather depressive than enjoyable, I would not recommend. I think the zoo should invest in more space for the animals and maybe also more care, because they seem extremally lonely.

DISAPPOINTED!! The zoo was confusing, there wasn't a clear path to be followed like at other zoos, which lead us to miss lots of animals and exhibits. Plus, many exhibitions were closed, which was not told to us before, or mentioned on the web site. On of their biggest exhibitions, amazonia, was closed, sadly because i especially came to see it. Moreover, some of the animals were agitated and even angry, for example the cheetah was very unhappy and raging at kids, because of this i do not think they had the best conditions. As well as that, be aware that they do not accept cash at the stores selling water and snacks inside the zoo.

My 10 year old nephew loved it. So many animals, arranged by continent. We were there for four hours but could have stayed longer if it hadn’t been closing.

We had a night ferry to catch from Rotterdam in our Motorhome the zoo proved the ideal place to visit

Motorhome easily accommodated in the car park zoo 10 mins off motorway and 25 mins from the port

The zoo itself was well presented with animals arranged in geographical zones

The aquarium was excellent we enjoyed in more than the deep in Hull

Some areas where being renovated but this did not detract from the ex pop erience

Animals looked well cared for and content with the exception of the poor polar bear who looked clinically depressed

حديقة حيوانات روتردام Diergaarde Blijdorp جميلة جداً و تستحق الزيارة و حجم حديقة الحيوانات كبير جداً لازم يكون عندكم وقت عند زيارتها و فيها اكواريوم
Diergaarde Blijdorp Rotterdam Zoo is very beautiful and worth a visit. The size of the zoo is very large. You must have time when visiting it, and it has an aquarium

Wow!
We had a fantastic trip to this zoo and more than exceeded our expectations. We visited with our teenage son (14yo) and 7 yo daughter and also another adult couple.
We are members of RZSS (Edinburgh/Highland) and as members we gained free entry to this zoo.
The fact it is on flat land helps, as there is a lot to get around as it is so huge but luckily if you have little ones you can hire a little buggy type thing to take them round on.
The whole zoo is immaculate! The enclosures and all surroundings etc look very well
Kept and very new.
The food was fantastic too! We visited on a Saturday and while it was busy, it was not crowded and there was no long waits anywhere which was great. Also a good point was that it wasn’t overpriced too. I find a lot of zoo attractions will overcharge for simple items like drinks or ice lollies but they have kept them very similar to a local shop price.
Big park was the Zoo’s app which allowed you to know more about the animals and also let you make a personalised route of how you wanted to see certain animals. Very good app indeed.
I have been to many zoos and I can honestly say this is likely the best I have been to, and my family agree!
