Get Wild at the Antwerp Zoo and Plankendael Animal Park

With its super-convenient location, right beside Antwerp's central train station, there's no excuse not to visit the Antwerp Zoo.

The zoo is very well maintained despite its age (circa 1853) and city-centre location. The animal habitats are constantly being updated and many are interactive and unusual, such as the Nocturama, an exhibit of nocturnal animals, and a cage-less bird exhibit.

The Antwerp Zoo has all of the usual favourites: Big cats, monkeys, penguins, even a herd of okapis.

The Zoo also maintains the Plankendael Animal Park, located outside the city, in Mechelen. Here you can find a personable herd of elephants including the playful baby in the photo above.
