Overview
More
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. You drive across the African savannah, where zebras and giraffes have right of way. Continue into the Lions' Den and feel the thrill as the big cats lumber past your car. Throughout most of the season, the 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, 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.Let the children run wild on our huge play area and stroke the goats. And don't forget to see our Tyrannosaurus Rex and the other fascinating giants of the past in our Dinosaur Park. It's the biggest collection of dinosaurs in Denmark. Welcome to GIVSKUD ZOO.

The Givskud Zoo had definitely a very interesting (innovative) business model. The amount of animals is not very large, but these are much more accessible than in many traditional Zoos (e.g. through Safari or playgrounds). It offers also various workshops and short talks about animals...More
