Blijdorp na jaren weer eens bezocht. Blijdorp heb ik ervaren als een grote kinderspeeltuin. Voor kinderen een ideale plaats om te zijn denk ik. De dieren worden goed verzorgd maar niet altijd goed te spotten door alle groenvoorziening. Vooral de vogels zijn ingesloten door veel groen. De grote katachtige idem.
Echt jammer, de oude leeuw en zijn dames nog steeds geen nieuw gezelschap. Wat maakt Blijdorp zo bijzonder , ik zou het niet weten, de mooiste dierentuin van Europa, echt niet.
Heel teleurstellend , ga er ook niet meer naar toe. zonde van het geld

Diergaarde Blijdorp is one of the better zoos I have visited. The zoo is very family and in particular child-friendly. A ticket is a bit pricey and it’s a little crowded inside (it was sunny when we visited).

Diergaarde Blijdorp is een mooie dierentuin waar de dieren goed worden verzorgd. Ook hebben de dieren gelukkig genoeg leefruimte. Een van de beste dierentuinen van Nederland.
