Belgium Things to Do: 940 reviews and 1,118 photos


The Olmense zoo is a smaller zoo in the
'Provincie Antwerpen'.
Actually it is on the border of
the 'Provincie Antwerpen' and 'Limburg'.

It is a family zoo run by just a couple of people
who bought the zoo less then a decade ago
and completely rebuild and improved it.

The zoo is nice because
-it has a natural setting , looks a bit wild
and untamed
-it has one of Europe's largest walk through bird cages.
-a nice childrens farm and a big playground.
-Entrance fees are quit low - check the website.
(we are talking Belgium here)
-they got a big collection of big cats.
-it is small and family friendly.
-the area is nice for biking and walking.

How to reach the zoo?
Perfect to reach by car , a little bit difficult by
public transport.You will have to call
the 'bel-bus' at least two houres
in advance 011-850 300
- the bus will pick you up at the station
and bring you to the zoo.
A special service from the local authorities.
