An exceedingly good day awaits the entire family in GIVSKUD ZOO. Quite close to the Kystlandet region, you find one of the major attractions of Jutland where a zoo, a safari park and a dinosaur park create the framework for an entertaining, educational and child-friendly experience.
GIVSKUD ZOO is a versatile and impressive attraction that is always a sure hit amongst the youngest family members. There is plenty of room for both animals and visitors – and you can safely set aside an entire day for the visit. There is rather a lot to experience before the day is done.
In the large safari park, you drive your own car or safari bus between the wild animals that roam free. It is a very special experience to see the animals up close in natural surroundings. You can also walk around between the animals in the traditional zoo. Along the way, you experience lions, elephants, giraffes, bison, Berber monkeys and many more. As the only place in Denmark, you can also experience gorillas, spectacled bears and giant otters.
From June 2021, you can see active penguins throwing themselves into the waves, swimming underwater and waddling around on land.
In Denmark’s largest dinosaur park, you can admire more than 50 life-size giants of the past. Say hello to the 40-meter-long ”long neck” and the terrifying and lifelike T-Rex. See the lifelike adult dinosaurs and their sweet, newly hatched young and learn more about these fascinating prehistoric creatures.
GIVSKUD ZOO - ZOOTOPIA is a complete experience that, in addition to the many animals, also has exciting restaurants, several playgrounds and activity camps for the children, an entirely new Baby Service Centre and even the option of staying overnight.
Moreover, the zoo has several exciting special exhibitions such as the ”Sustainable Development Park” and the ”Cabin of Death” which are also a natural and educational part of the experience in GIVSKUD ZOO.
Located a short 40-minute drive from Horsens, a 45-minute drive from Juelsminde and a 1-hour drive from Odder, GIVSKUD ZOO is definitely worth a visit during your family holiday in the Kystlandet region.
