A wonderful park with many rare animals, like giraffe, lions, tigers, cheetahs, apes, snakes, moose, crocodile, which all have plenty of room to live. Definitely worth visiting.

My family and I goes to the Animal Zoo in Kristiansand a couple of days every summer. The kids have a great time, and there is a lot to do, not only watching animals. I recommend bringing your own food an beverages.

Huge wooded area converted to a wonderfully large park featuring a big selection of animals living in comfortable enclosures outside and inside the parks many buildings. There is also plenty of exciting activities for kids and adults alike, and while the admission price is a bit steep you get a lot out of the experience. It is one of the... More

Strange animals. Cute animals. Funny animals. Creepy animals. This place got them all - and takes excellent care of them all. Almost extinct red pandas want to breed here, in example. Then lets not forget the rides, the slides or the pirates. Or the aqualand. Also worth noteing, this place is EXPENSIVE. Do a little work before you go, bring... More

You should definitely go there if your in Kristiansand! It is very fun and probably the biggest zoo I have been to. There is also some type of rollercoasters but not really rollercoasters. Very fun visiting with my family! They also have a waterpark that you should definitely try out!

Place is way to focused on profit, money and earnings. It is all about making money fast with little expenses. Also too crowded and too little staff.

I went here with my boyfriend from northern Norway. It was his second time but I've been multiple times before as I live nearby. Dyreparken in kristiansand is a great place all year around. It has something to offer for anyone at any age. I'm mostly there for the animals though. I do care about animal rights and welfare and... More
