Welcome to Zoo Dvůr Králové


As children, we all probably dreamt of going on adventures into the wild. Those long-ago family trips to zoos are now cherished memories. Now you can experience the mysteries of Africa at Dvůr Králové Zoo without having to travel to far off distant lands.

Tip from the giraffes: All those wanting to learn more about zoo should head for the ABOUT THE ZOO section, which is crammed with everything you could ever wish to know.

The zoo is now in the summer season

Elephant Bull Kito is Eleven

Date: 18.12.2013

We celebrated on 7 December 2013 the eleventh birthday party of African Elephant bull Kito. Zoo employees of the nutrition and zoology department prepared a birthday (fruit-vegetables) cake for Kito´s enrichment. He was born on 6th December 2002 in Colchester Zoo in England; his mother Tanya (wild caught) delivered him after artificial insemination by semen of an elephant bull Tembo (wild caught in Zambia). When transported from Colchester Zoo  (June 2009) he weighed 2450 kg, now he weighs about 4 550 kilograms. Two females (Umbu-32 years, Sally-31 years) helped Kito with eating the birthday cake :-)
