Enjoy African savannah residents very close up! Various observation decks invite you to linger and will give you a good view of the facilities for black rhinoceroses, antelopes and ostriches. Observe the pachyderms bathing in mud or sleeping in the shadow under the honey locust trees.
Zoo Krefeld is known for successfully keeping and breeding the endangered black rhinoceroses far beyond the borders of NRW. Five little rhinoceroses have been born in Krefeld so far. Since black rhinoceroses are solitary animals, female rhinoceros "Nane" and male rhinoceros "Usoni" live in separate enclosures.
Every year, hundreds of rhinoceroses are killed for their valuable horns in Africa. Money collected in Krefeld goes to the organisation Save the Rhino.
