Are you the adventure-minded type and nuts about animals? Then this animal camp is perfect for you! You'll be spending the week doing fun and interesting activities centred on the care of animals. The highlight of the week is a visit to the real jungle at Burgers’ Zoo in the town of Arnhem AND you will visit Hof van Eckberge!
