Rotterdam Zoo does not allow pets into the zoo to avoid possible fear reactions and spreading of diseases. Unfortunately they cannot make an exception for guide dogs. The zoo has no kennel facilities.

The Rotterdam Zoo is well accessible to those in wheelchairs. There is a limited number of wheelchairs available free of charge. It is strongly recommended that you book a wheelchair in advance. There are plenty benches in pretty locations along your route.  For a relaxed journey of discovery with small children, you can also rent a buggy at the entrance.
