This is one of my favourite destinations for a day out with my young daughter!
Over the years living in Budapest it has always been a hit with children and
myself. I was lucky to have a Hungarian friend who worked in the primate
house and still had friends working there so we able to have an after hours viewing of the
gorillas and Orange Urangutans.

The zoo has a conservation and research centre with internationally important
breeding programmes for endangered native and exotic species.

A Childrens' Zoo for close encounter with tame animals.
"Animals in action show" twice a day. One of the leading animal collections in Eastern
Europe with more than 2000 animals. Spectacular animal display
representing the African savannah, the artic area, and the wetland habitats.
The population of more than 200 primates is of international repute.
Large family groups of playful monkeys.
A lovely park under conservation order with remarkable trees, shrubs and flower beds.
