Have you ever been to a wonderful zoo? Have you ever had the chance to experience how magical and intense Antwerp Zoo is? This zoo is located in central Belgium in the city of Antwerp. It is the oldest animal park in the country and the fifth oldest in the world, established in 1843. Everyone in Belgium knows this place and has strong childhood memories there.

Antwerp Zoo started as a country club and evolved to the number 1 visitor attraction of Belgium. It is a green lung in the heart of the city, a place of encounter with a rich history. Now it starts an ambitious project of renovation and modernization, called: “Tomorrowʼs Zoo”. Antwerp Zoo is a modern zoo: the zoo of tomorrow. It is not a collection of caged animals but a habitat for multiple species that are endangered. A place where enrichment for animals as well as rich experiences for visitors takes centre stage.
