Despite a number of teething problems, and notwithstanding the initial scepticism of the authorities, Givskud Lion Park first opened its doors on 12 August 1969 and became an overnight success.
Stepping into Randers Rainforest is like stepping into another world. The air is warm and humid, filled with the sounds of cascading waterfalls and the richly diverse wildlife all around you. The lush, green environment is home to everything from tiny, industrious leaf-cutter ants to the majestic jaguar, whisking you in the blink of an eye from the cool temperatures of northern Europe into a tropical wonderland.
There’s no such thing as seasons in the tropical rainforest, and the same applies to Randers Rainforest. The temperature stays at between 22 and 30 degrees all year round, with humidity close to 100%. The high humidity and lack of any breeze mean that the tropical climate often feels hotter than it is in reality. So don’t overdress when visiting Randers Rainforest! You can leave outdoor clothing in our wardrobe lockers.
