Polar bears, monkeys, elephants and hippos – these and more are what’s in store for you when you come to visit the famous Copenhagen Zoo. If you are in it for the wild ride and the experience worth keeping, then this zoo is definitely for you.
This famous zoo offers about 3,000 animals in their care. There are about 264 plus species. From animals that are endemic in the area to those that come from your favourite animals from tropical countries, you can find them all here. The whole area of the zoo expands to about 1,500 square meters of rich and healthy rainforest.
If you are travelling with children, you’d be glad to know that they have a children’s zoo area. This is the part where your kids can pet the animals. They can feed the birds or the elephants even. The zoo has dwarf goats and other farm animals they can see in books. They can get close to these animals and that’s something that they will never forget. Did you know that they have animal grooming stations too? That’s totally cool!
And then there is the Arctic Ring and the Elephant House too. The famous designer Normal Foster designed the newly opened Elephant House. It is considered as one of the top rank elephant facilities in the world. Apart from allowing visitors to have a closer look at what the animals are doing, the facility makes sure that the animals are given enough comfort as if they were living on their own in the wild. The facility includes a pool where an elephant can dip its whole body in.
The Arctic Ring is where you can get close to polar bears. You don’t have to travel to the Arctic to be able to experience them. They house Arctic birds and seals too. If these do not convince you to visit the Copenhagen Zoo, nothing will. Just get there and enjoy!
