Experience the Wildlands adventure from Hotel ten Cate

Hotel ten Cate is located within walking distance of the spectacular animal park of Emmen, where you can experience the best adventures with the whole family. You can already see the hotel from a distance. This is due to the colorful appearance of the Toyism art movement. Founder and artist Dejo initially sought a connection with the perception of children, but Toyism also offers plenty of inspiration for adults. For example, you will discover the “Sleeping Beauty” on the south and north sides of the hotel. She dreams about the animals that are all in the adventure park such as the hippo, the banana transformed into a monkey and ducks.


More than just a zoo

If we would only call Wildlands a zoo, we would be doing the park a lot short. In the park, the experience of and in different worlds is central. Naturally, animals play an important role in this. But because the entire entourage is also designed in detail, you will experience a unique experience here. Take, for example, the world of Jungola alone. Here you imagine yourself in a mysterious world with the most diverse animal species and at the same time discover exciting adventures in the jungle.

Boat trip on the Rimbula River

In Jungola you can take a boat trip on the Rimbula River and see imposing elephants, spider monkeys and other animals up close. Prefer to walk through the jungle? That is also possible and how. Walking through the jungle you will arrive at the Elephant Valley, which lies on the riverbed. What follows is the Butterfly Temple, which is overgrown and located on the edge of the jungle area. Make sure you don’t get lost in the Bamboo maze afterwards. You should also be careful on the Koppensnellerspad …


Safari in Serenga

Always wanted to go on safari? Then this is your chance. In the world of Serenga you will explore a vast savannah where you can experience adventure, nature and culture. Rhinos, giraffes and lots of other animals are present to provide you with the ultimate safari experience. King Leeuw keeps a close eye on everything on the Leeuwenberg. A bit further ahead you will see the Arena which, although built by man, has now become a baboon area. You will hardly get anywhere else much closer to the animals. Look into the eyes of giraffes or meerkats and see how the hippos live in the water.

Expedition Nortica

The same goes for the wonderful Nortica world. Here you go on an expedition and dive into the cold world of rugged rocks and coastlines. Here too you will get to know animals that live both above and under water up close. The Nortica expedition starts in a harbor area where sea lions and fur seals swim around you. Then you go through the domain of the penguins to the Arctic station. Here you can observe impressive polar bears that reside above and below the water. If you dare, you can also help researchers here by taking a 4D test ride through the polar region with the Arctic 1.

Dizzying height in the Tweestryd roller coaster

And not only the 4D test ride of the Nortica world in Wildlands is dizzying. The Tweestryd attraction takes you to a dizzying height of no less than 20 meters. Tweestryd is the longest Family Boomerang in the world. In a double steel roller coaster you duel with other family members at a top speed of no less than 60 kilometers per hour. Did your mine cart win? Then you have earned money for a good cause. Fantastic right?
