Wherever you go in Planckendael ZOO, there is always a playground nearby for a bit of fun!

Planckendael ZOO in continents


There is a playground full of elephants next to the Ankole-Watusi cattle enclosure. Climb through their legs and slide down again through the long trunk. Venture afterwards on the raft towards bonobo island, and hop into the canoe, on to the African village!


Deep in the continent of America, you’ll end up in the Wild West. Climb into the petting zoo through the tower or have fun in the playground with a covered wagon.


Near “Toepaja” restaurant you’ll find a playground ‘for advanced level’ with a jumble of wooden beams and nets. Need even more adventure? In the Linden woods in the middle of Asia, climb up to a height of 14 metres to follow the tree top trail!


While your parents have a break on a bench with a drink, you can romp to your heart’s content in the stork playground with a view on - you guessed it - the storks.


The floating play harbour and the aboriginal rope trail, rotating trunks and loops in Oceania are ideal to test that you can keep your balance. Or not, obviously…
