Last week I went to the zoo in Antwerp with my 3 year old grandson. The zoo opened it’s doors in 1843, it is in the city center of Antwerp next to the train station so we went by train. It is a small zoo as it is in the city center but a little gem with lots of flowers and century old tree’s, if I would live in Antwerp I think I would go every day. One of my favorite animals here are the gorilla’s , I LOVE gorilla’s !!! As it was during the week and on a schoolday there were not so many visitors so we could go and do what we wanted in piece.
SMALL ANT EATER
MONKEYS, I COULD WATCH THEM ALL DAY
OKAPI, APPARENTLY THERE ARE MORE OKAPI’S LIVING IN ZOO’S THEN IN THE WILD
ONE OF THE VERY OLD TREE’S, BEFORE IT WAS A ZOO THIS WAS A PARK WITH VERY OLD TREE’S
THERE ARE ANIMAL STATUES ALL OVER THE GARDEN OF ANIMALS WHO ONCE LIVED HERE BUT DIED
MOST PEOPLE WHO VISIT THE ZOO GO SIT ON THIS GORILLA TO HAVE THEIR PICTURE TAKEN, UNFORTUNATELY MY GRANDSON WAS AFRAID OF THIS BIG MONKEY….
HERE’S A REAL GORILLA, ISN’T HE BEAUTIFUL !!???
HERE IS MY GRANDSON LOOKING FOR NEMO, THIS WAS THE BEST PART FOR HIM, HE WOULDN’T LEAVE THIS AQUARIUM, HE WAS SO PLEASED TO SEE NEMO AND HIS FRIENDS IN REAL LIFE, HE DIDN’ T UNDERSTAND WHY NEMO’S SHARK FRIEND WAS NOT IN THERE WITH THE OTHERS…..
THIS WAS TAKEN INSIDE THE TRAINSTATION OF ANTWERP
As you can imagine we both had a lovely day.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend all !
