Few parks cover such a variety as Kristiansand Zoo, which is why the Zoo like to call themselves "The Living Park". Just 11 km east of Kristiansand you will find the most beautiful and natural zoo, with scenery and environment in abundance.
Kristiansand Zoo is Norway`s most frequently visited attraction covering an area of 150 acres of wild Nordic terrain. It is totally different from other European zoos, which are characterised by bars and heavy padlocks. In Kristiansand Zoo, the animals have wide open spaces in which to roam - however, the visitors are still able to get up close to observe some of the most beautiful animals - like the red panda, which is threatened by extinction.
