On this adventure, get up and close with nature and explore the six adventure worlds at Leipzig Zoo. In the Founder's Garden, Gondwanaland, Asia, Africa, Pongoland, and South America you will discover a fascinating animal world. The zoo is home to more than 850 animal species, including many rare and endangered species such as Amur leopards, Sumatran tigers, and western lowland gorillas. It is also famous for its large enclosures that mimic the animals' natural habitat as closely as possible.

A trip through Gondwanaland is like a journey to the jungles of Africa, Asia, and South America. Nearly 170 species of exotic animals and more than 500 plant species await you in this covered area, which, by the way, is larger than two soccer fields. Follow the winding jungle paths, the treetop trail as well as the mysterious jungle river to discover this fabulous tropical diversity.

In the world's only great ape facility, Pongoland, you can witness chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans. The Leipzig Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology also conducts research here. In Pongoland, you can even become an explorer yourself at various discovery stations!

Just like in the wild, here giraffes, ostriches, zebras, and other animals live together in peace. There are several excellent vantage points from where you can observe these savannah dwellers. Right next door, you can visit the predator enclosures. Only a moat seems to separate the spotted hyenas from their prey here! In addition, you can also observe lions and cute meerkats here.
