Discover the whole animal kingdom in one day


Planckendael is a special zoo. The zoo is in fact divided into five continents and a trail runs through each continent. Five loops start and finish from a central point by the entrance; this way you won’t miss anything in the park.  Five adventurous journeys full of surprising encounters. You can be sure that, as you meander through the greenery, you will find yourself regularly face to face with the animals. 

A fantastic day for all the family, that's Planckendael in a nutshell.
