Knuthenborg Safaripark, Maribo

Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
Knuthenborg Safaripark serves as home to nearly 1,000 animals of 40 different species including antelopes, camels, giraffes, rhinoceroses, zebras, and the endangered species of Arctic wolf. The history of the park dates back to 1870, when owner Count Eggert C. Knuthlaid created a park for his collection of rare botanical plants. One of his descendants started to fill the park with free-roaming exotic creatures in 1969. Today the park houses an arboretum, an aviary, a tiger enclosure, attractive picnic areas, and a nature and a water playground for children. Most of the park is bicycle-friendly, except the savannah, which is accessible only by car or safari bus. In some areas visitors can touch the animals. Buy some traditional African crafts or locally produced foods at the souvenir shop. Make Knuthenborg Safaripark a part of your Maribo vacation plans using our Maribo travel planner.

  • This is a really pricey location but absolutely worth the money. This park is huge with so many animals and types of animals you wouldn’t expect to see in Denmark. The park feels not crowded and the animals are not stressed. You can spend easily half a day driving around and observing wild animals. The cherry on the cake is the dinosaurs-park and the endless playground together with the waterpark. Absolutely brilliant park, brilliant day and brilliant experience! TOP recommendation!
