This zoo features about 500 animals of 70 different species and offers a splendid view on the Wilder Kaiser mountain range.
The Ebbs Rarity Zoo (Raritätenzoo Ebbs) is a private animal park that really lives up to its name, as 500 real rarities of 70 different animal species from all over the world can be observed in this zoo. Many zoo inhabitants move about freely, which makes a visit even more adventurous.
The Rarity Zoo has been founded by the bird and nature enthusiast Erich Eberl, who made his private animal park publicly accessible in May 1991. Since 2007, however, the Ebbs Rarity Zoo has been under a new guidance and is one of the awarded Austrian animal parks "Top Tierparke Österreichs". Those who are awarded with the Austrian seal, are subject to a regular, voluntary control by an independent Austrian team of experts in the farming of animals.
Maned wolfs (see pic), Bennett's Wallabies, king vultures, hornbills, Seychelles giant tortoises, barbary apes, flamingos, porcupines and coatis are only some of the animals that are going to welcome you in this zoo. What is also astonishing for zoo visitors are the quite uncommon friendships that originate among zoo inhabitants. Two swans, a cormorant, three great white pelicans and two Hawaiian geese made friends and as it is usual for friends, from time to time they meet to make a walk across the zoo.
The Ebbs Rarity Zoo stays closed in winter, the summer season 2023 will start at the end of March.
