Petting zoo, an activity for 2-year-olds.

Do you have children under the age of three?

Children up to the age of three do not pay the entrance fee, but must be accompanied by one of the parents, who does need a entry ticket for the activity.

Parents should take care of the respect that the child should have for our animals: how to touch them, how to feed them, etc.

If you think that your child will not be able to sit quietly between 45 minutes and 1 hour, we do not recommend this activity, as our animals need calm in order to give the best of them.

Is it a children-only activity?

The Petting zoo is for everyone who wants to get in touch with animals.

The explanations we give of each animal are to make young and old think, and we love that you participate with your opinions. The explanations are tailored to our audience: if there are many children, we make them easy to understand, and if there are adults involved, we go deeper into the explanations.

Of course, we always answer any questions you have about animals!
