Experience a safari tour of GIVSKUD ZOO – ZOOTOPIA in your own car with full view. Explore the zoo on foot and meet gorillas, elephants and wolves, and end the day with a visit to one of the large playgrounds.

At the zoo, you go on exciting walks and meet many fascinating animals, including gorillas, buffaloes, lions, giant otters and many others. Along the way, you'll pass Europe’s largest penguin facility. Through the glass pane you can see the many penguins swimming under water, and from platforms you can see them throw themselves into the waves and waddle around on land. The park also houses Europe’s largest Andean bear facility, where five bears are at home.

At the park's many savannahs, you can drive close to the animals and see giraffes, zebras, antelopes and lions cross the road right in front of you. You can choose to take the safari in your own car or on a safari bus.

GIVSKUD ZOO also has Denmark’s largest dinosaur exhibit, where you will find more than 50 life-sized dinosaurs, ranging from the  40-metre 'long neck' to the 'dangerous' Tyrannosaurus Rex.

You can also look forward to seeing the park’s many special exhibitions, including World Development Goals Park and PlasticPlanet.

There are many playgrounds and activity camps for children, a Baby Service Centre for very young children and lots of cosy oases for everyone.

GIVSKUD ZOO is only 70 km from Varde and 20 km from Billund and Vejle.
