is more than a zoological garden; it’s a significant factor in the Hannover Region economy.
More than 1,6 million visitors each year are enchanted by seven unique theme worlds – the African Zambezi landscape, Gorilla Mountain, the Indian Jungle Palace, the Niedersachsen Meyer’s Farm, Mollywoop children’s land, the Australian Outback and the Yukon Bay Canadian landscape.
No other zoo has, by its own efforts, achieved so much for people and animals in such a short time – and attracted so many more visitors; since the transformation began visitor numbers have more than doubled, and admission receipts have risen by more than 500 % since 1994.
Zoos are usually regional amenities, patronised by visitors from the immediate surroundings. Hannover Adventure Zoo, however, is drawing more and more visitors from other federal states and thus contributing to the Hannover economy. The majority of visitors are prepared to travel more than 30 minutes for a Zoo visit.
With the opening of Yukon Bay the main catchment area has expanded again, making the Adventure Zoo the most important tourist destination in the Hannover Region.
