Enjoy a day in the animal kingdom – GIVSKUD ZOO is only a 25-minute drive from Billund. Take the family on safari in your own car or on the GIVSKUD ZOO Safari Bus. Get closer to the animals! You drive across the African savannah, where zebra and giraffes have right of way.Continue into the Lions' Den. This is dangerous territory! Feel the thrill as the big cats lumber past your car. Do you dare? The pride of lions in GIVSKUD ZOO is Denmark's biggest, so you are always sure to see lots of the big cats. Don't forget to visit our tropical house with our newest species of carnivores, the South American giant otters. See them swimming in their pool and watch them being fed. Throughout most of the season, the elephants, gorillas, lemurs and other species are fed daily. Children are welcome to help the zoo guide feed the camels! If you need to take a break from the animals, GIVSKUD ZOO has lots to offer the whole family – it's a great place to play, relax and have fun! Visit the teepee camp, where children can bake bonfire bread and pan for gold just like real gold diggers.Let the children run wild on our huge play area. There are areas specially reserved for toddlers – so Mums and Dads can relax while the children play. Take your children for a ride on the Safari Train. With the driver's help, children are even allowed to feed the animals. Small children love "Stroke a goat". In fact, it will probably become their favourite place in the zoo park.

Amazing place, loved the combination of driving through enclosures of animals, then parking and walking to see other animals in their areas. The restaurants served delicious food and there were plenty of children's play areas to keep our young ones amused. Well worth the entry fee.

We had half a day here just before taking our plane back home in the afternoon. It is really convenient addition to Legoland Billund, as it is only a 20 minutes drive from there and from the airport. We very much enjoyed the nordic scenery, the dimensions of the zoo and the open space for the animals and of course... More

Luckily the day we went to Givskud Zoo it was a nice sunny day and we bought the tickets online so you save a small amount if you book tickets online. Givskud zoo is more of a safari park and get a closer look at the animals and it is actually interesting driving past the fierce animals like lions and... More

We spent almost an entire day there, even though it was raining for most of the day. We had booked (in advance, online) the Good Morning zoo tour where you got to meet the lions up close and to feed the rhinos etc. The main commentary was in Danish, but English was available too. The tour included normal entrance tickets... More

We were there during summer time, and it was a very nice day. The safari bus is a good investment as you get way more infomation that you will have done just by walking around on your own. We have a yearly ticket(årskort) for Odense Zoo, so the entrance was free for us. The part of the Zoo with the... More

Must visit place for animals, safari and newly created Dino park. Not only children but adults also love this place. Good parking facilities and not so costly yearly pass. We can visit many other places with the pass.
