During the parks opening hours you can get help from a zoo worker to borrow bicycle pump and patchwork. We can help with bike maps. There is access to toilets and you can fill you water bottle or buy drinking water in the park. See other Bike Friends at www.visitvejle.dk

However, dogs are NOT allowed on the Safari Bus, in the lion enclosure, the penguin enclosure or in those animal enclosures where visitors come into direct contact with the animals (e.g. the Barbary macaques and the lemurs). There is a dog-sitting service adjacent to the entrance to the lion enclosure.
