Guests staying at hotels in Hannover, such as the Copthorne Hotel Hannover, will find Hannover Zoo situated conveniently close by.
Zebras, antelopes and gazelles race beside blue neck ostriches across the gentle hills of this 12,000 square metres savannah landscape. A hanging bridge, tortuous paths and caves wreathed in mist turn a stroll around Hannover Zoo into the expedition of a lifetime.
Zambezi Lodge is the best lookout point over this African savannah, where giraffes, springboks and blesboks wander round, regarded across a moat by magnificent Barbary lions. From the lodge, visitors come face to face with a giraffe, as it eats from the high feeding basket and pulls out hay with its astonishingly long blue tongue.
