Your journey of discovery starts at AquaZoo Leeuwarden!

In AquaZoo, you can walk with penguins along the beach, wander through the ring-tailed lemur area and come face to face with Amur tigers. Cross streams over tree trunks, pull yourself across the swamp near the kangaroos on a raft and hop from one stone to another. Can you keep your feet dry? Your journey of discovery starts at AquaZoo!

Come and join our polar bear inspection

This is unique in the Netherlands. During the polar bear inspection, you get to see the animal caretakers perform their daily medical checks of the polar bears from very close by. It is not only fun but also educational.
