Interact with Animals! In the "Interactive Zone"
The highlight of this place is definitely that you get to interact with different animals. In the interactive zone, you get to pet animals that you've probably never had the chance to touch before, such as capybara, mara, kangaroos and giant tortoise. There are also activities like capybara feeding experience, penguin snacking time and photo shooting with an owl on your arm.
Must See! Shows with Many Different Animal Performers
Another characteristic is that this place hosts various shows and events with animals. The bird performance show, in which birds fly around right in front of the audience's eyes is absolutely stunning. Please check as there are different shows at different times.
It's Not Just Animals! Beautiful Flowers Bloom in the Jungle
A natural jungle grows inside Kobe Animal Kingdom, where you can observe beautiful tropical flowers like lotus and begonia, all year round. The beauty of the flowers in this park is definitely something to see, with a "flower shower" made out of different flower decorations in the center of the park.
