The setting of Ołiwa zoo is beautiful with the forest. The enclosures are hit and miss - some appear too small, but some are abundant. Many set in a way that you can see into them without a fence in the way.

Large and fun zoo with most of the habitats suitable for their residents. It will take hours to explore so pick good shoes. Or you can take the zoo train, but then you will miss things. So much to see, hear and smell! Very noisy...More
