Visitor Reviews

This review submitted by NIELS JOHS LEGARTH IVERSEN,
September 2000

Denmark has quite a lot of small zooparks. The largest of the small zoos is Jyllands Park zoo, formerly Jyllands Mini Zoo (a very modest name indeed!) at Haunstrup west of Herning. It is easy to get there if you have your own transportation, but the nearest public bus passes at a distance of approx. 3 km . As it is often the case this one started out (in 1969) as the hobby of one man, who had a small collection of exotic animals. He started showing people around, and soon the whole family was employed in the zoo business. The founder retired a couple of years ago, but it seems that the place will survive, with approx. 250.000 visitors per year (from Easter to the Danish schoolchildren's autumn holiday, mid october). It has all the essentials of a real zoo: sea lions, tigers, kangaroos, llamas, antelopes and so on, and there is even a tropical house with reptiles, birds and small animals. Among the rarities it is worth mentioning the nénés, the rare hawaiian geese that barely survived as a species on the basis of a few captive birds. There is a cafeteria, a playing ground for the kids and the usual petting animals. All in all they have got around 700 animals.
