Hortobagy Wild Animal Park

The Hortobágy Wild Animal Park based on the natural conditions of the Hortobágy National Park. This is a perfect place for the demonstration of the ancient wildlife of the Hungarian Puszta. The Wild Animal Park presents some of the animals lived here before the appearance of man, but driven to extinction by the spread of civilization, eg. wolves, Przewalski’s Horses, vultures, pelicans. Visitors can also see other wild animals still living in the protected areas such as wildcats, foxes, roedeers, white tailed eagles, great white egrets, cranes, white storks. 

The aim of the wild animal park is to present these species in an environment that reflects the former face of Hortobágy. 

In the exhibition the world of amphibians and reptiles is shown in terrariums, the ancient wildlife of the puszta is presented with the help of full-sized skeletons and illustrated information boards, and the typical habitats are shown by dioramas.
