Rivne Zoo

The real highlight of Rivne is the best Zoo in Western Ukraine. It is a place of learning about nature and rest. It’s a place where everyone realizes how small we all are against the background of nature Mother Nature.

Rivne Zoo is one of the youngest zoological parks of national importance in Ukraine. It was created in 1982 and is still developing on a daily basis. Today its territory is 13.5 hectares. A unique small corner of nature in the suburbs is a place to relax with the whole family. The collection of animals includes 179 species from all of the continents, 24 of which are listed in the World Red Book. The main part of the zoo is the remains of an old orchard and it is the only natural forest within the city with an area of 4.7 hectares.

The territory of the ZOO is a home to over 130 species of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. Almost 30 species of animals are born in the Zoo every year.

Rivne ZOO is a scientific and educational institution, the main functions of which are the preservation and reproduction of endangered species and the promotion of natural knowledge among the population. You can learn more about each animal in detail at the information stands, get qualified information from the zoo's specialists or book a tour.

Over the year our Zoo holds different thematic events aimed to mainstream nature among children and adults (e.g. Tiger’s Day, African Savannah, Zookeeper’s day) as well as ethnographic and entertaining (Potato Fest, Pumpkin Fest, Night in Zoo, Saint Nicolas in Zoo). You can order tour operations and participate in exhibition animals’ feeding.

Total Zoo’s area – 11.6 hectares, annual attendance – 195 000 visitors, staff – 72 employees.

Animals’ collection contains over 180 species, including some unique for Ukraine. Such as lowland nyala, white-tailed gnu, giant red kangaroo, two-toed sloth, paca, Brazilian porcupine, three-banded armadillo etc. Visitors are always excited with the New World’s Primates exhibition, especially the Callitrichidae.

Among other Rivne Zoo’s features are exoterrarium and unique “Night World” exhibition showcasing the animals of nocturnal nature. Visitors are being surrounded with wild nature sounds and subdued lighting and can watch Nile bats flying experiencing strong sensations.
