Visit the Lions' Den
Feel the thrill as the big cats lumber past your car. Do you dare?
Explore the gorilla enclosure, where you can meet our baby gorilla (born in February 2013).
Among local people the South American giant otter is often reffered to as the "river wolf".
In June 2012 GIVSKUD ZOO celebrated the opening of a new tropical house for these highly skilled predators.
The outdoor area for the park's two otters, "Frieda" and "Saro", has now been opened for the audience of this South American carnivor.

The Lion Park?
Or Løveparken, Lejonparken or Löwenpark...
You are quite right if this is something you remember from your childhood.
When the park opened in 1969, the lions were the main attraction - in fact, the only one. In subsequent years more species arrived and, in 1983, the park was renamed GIVSKUD ZOO.
And today we are still proud to show our visitors Northern Europe's largest pride of lions.
GIVSKUD ZOO is part of Legoland Billund Resort. Book the world's best mini holiday here.
Book a family room at Danhostel Givskud Zoo, right next to the park. Who knows? You might wake up next morning to hear the lion's roaring.
Keep an eye out for newborn animals during your safari.
Our famous gorilla
Samson is no ordinary gorilla. As far as we know, he was the first gorilla in the world to have his own Facebook profile. Within two months, he had 5,000 friends, the maximum number of friends that Facebook would allow. Nowadays you can "like" him on his fan page. Please forgive him for not writing in English. He has never been abroad...
