Wake Up Zoo

Have you ever tried scratching a rhinoceros behind the ears? Now is your chance.

Start the day with a trip behind the scenes at GIVSKUD ZOO. We visit selected stalls and say ‘good morning’ to the animals. You have the chance to see the enormous broad-nosed rhinoceroses up close – and find out that they love to be scratched behind the ears. You can also look deep into the eyes of a fierce lion when the tour passes the lion pens. Some parts of the tour take place in a bus, others on foot, so it is important to dress appropriately for the weather.

Meeting place and time

Meet the guide by the parking lot in front of the park at 08.15 - follow the signs. Don’t forget to bring your email receipt with you. The tour lasts around 90 minutes. If you position your car by the ‘drive in’ gate, you can bring it into the park before the tour begins.

See the available dates in the calendar below.


Adults: DKK 280

Children (age 3–11): DKK 140

Young children (age 0–2): free (young children sit on the laps of adults in the bus)

The price covers the tour ‘behind the scenes’ as well as admission to the park for the rest of the day.

We reserve the right to change the programme if, out of consideration for the animals, we cannot enter some of the scheduled pens on a given day.

Avoid having to get up early!
