Guided tours

Visitors of Burgers’ Zoo are free to take an adventurous trip through the Bush and explore the Ocean like a scuba diver, but on a guided tour you will experience the different worlds at Burgers’ Zoo on another level! Together with a guide, you will discover things that you probably would not have come across on your own. We offer a choice of multiple different tours which each last approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. 

Guided tour of Burgers’ Safari

Guided tour of Burgers’ Safari

The African savannah landscape unfolds before your eyes, where large groups of herbivores such as giraffes, zebras, waterbuck and wildebeest live. Walk past the watering hole, where the square-lipped rhinoceros regularly go to quench their thirst. Your guide will explain how the ungulates get their food, and how they avoid getting eaten by the lions and cheetah which are next on your route. The Safari is an open-air eco-display. In winter conditions the animals are moved to the stables, and this guided tour is therefore not available.

Guided tour of Burgers’ Bush

Guided tour of Burgers’ Bush

The Bush takes you on a journey through the tropical rainforests of three different continents. The humid heat, the smells and sounds will give you a true experience of this complex habitat. At first glance, the Bush seems to be full of just dense vegetation. The guide’s explanation soon reveals that the Bush is home to all kinds of lianas, epiphytes, palm trees or useful plants such as cocoa and vanilla. Plants are flowering in the Bush almost all year round. The guide will also prove to be very useful when spotting the free-roaming birds, lizards and bats!

Besides the fish, the reef is home to countless invertebrates such as corals, sponges, sea anemones, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. Further on, you can investigate the depths of the immense ocean. Sharks appear here as quickly as they disappear again. Before exiting, you walk through the tunnel where the large eagle rays swim overhead.

Guided tour of the monkeys

Guided tour of the monkeys

Burgers’ Zoo is home to many different species of monkeys, each with its own uniqueness. Madagascar's ring-tailed lemurs and black lemurs have particularly good noses, the group life of macaques is characterised by a strict hierarchy, while the family life of gibbons is a lot more relaxed. You will also visit the large gorilla troop and their offspring on their wooded island and observe our world-famous troop of chimpanzees. Observing monkeys becomes an even more fascinating and exciting experience with a guide!
