Visit Amazing Animals at Cologne Zoo

This was my second visit to the Cologne Zoo, however where as I drove there last time and parked in the very impressive bamboo car park, this time we used the metro rail – which is a pretty easy and effective way to get around the city.  The stop for the zoo is just a […]

Planckendael Zoo

Certainly within Europe Planckendael has to be a contender for one of my favourite zoos.  Generally we will take a couple of hours to make our way around your average zoo…. And it doesn’t even seem to matter too much how big it is.  We have a real passion for seeing things which we have never […]

Are “Unaccredited” Zoos Worth Visiting?

In this age we know that animals all have very different and specific needs if they are kept in captivity, and many people question whether or not we actually still need zoos and aquariums…  The short answer to this, from my point of view is that there are many zoos around the world which carry […]

They take a lot of inspiration from Asian landscaping and architecture, which fits with much of their collection which features Asian animals heavily (although there are also some European, American and African animals). It uses statues […]

Wingham Wildlife Park

Self professed as being the fastest growing zoo in Kent – a statement which I think is pretty easy to justify.  You don’t need to be away from the park for long to see something new upon your next visit. Some of the locals still remember this as the old Wingham Bird Park opened in […]

Visit Cleland Wildlife Park

If you come to Adelaide and have a few days to spare, make sure that Cleland Wildlife Park makes an appearance on your itinerary.  Cleland is certainly not as large as the Adelaide Zoo, and due to the obvious difference in funding between the two zoos, this is also maybe not as “advanced” as the main city […]

Visit the World Famous Australia Zoo

Australia Zoo is one of the most well known of all the zoos in Australia, and whilst it is a great zoo in itself the biggest reason for this is the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin… And if you somehow don’t know who he was, treat yourself to a little history lesson here. When you pull […]
