An amazing day out for every group. Combine an educational outing with fun activities and shows.
Sanctuary De Zonnegloed Vzw is an animal sanctuary for more than 100 different kinds of animals. You can find tufted capuchins, barbary apes, bears, raccoons and many more!
Every year sanctuary De Zonnegloed educates thousands of visitors about the well-being and protection of exotic animals. A focus lies on the problems accompanied by keeping animals captive and how De Zonnegloed works with and cares for the animals.
A visit to De Zonnegloed helps young people to take on a positive attitude towards animals and an understanding in the needs of those animals. This is achieved by feeding moments, school trips, workshops, … always accompanied by a professional animal caretaker or the founder himself which gives you an unique view of the sanctuary and an amazing experience. De Zonnegloed is an animal shelter and sanctuary and because of this it offers a different educational experience than most zoos. Our educational team works closely with the animals and this gives them a thorough insight in every animal. The knowledge and experience is used to create fun and informative sessions full of interesting conversations, guided tours and workshops adjusted to the target audience.
