Burger's Zoo, Arnhem/The Netherlands

  1. Hi,
    last weekend I was at the Zoo in Arnhem in the Netherlands. Although I was in non-photographic company I managed to shoot some pics of the halls and some aminals. I can highly recommend visiting the zoo, in my humble opinion it is one of the best in Europe. They left the concept of aminals in cages and built big halls where they re-created jungle and desert landscapes, with little animals moving free within the hall. Here are some pictures, maybe they give am impression.
