Unique innovations

Zoo Consultants creates unique and innovative experiences, based on the following techniques.

Nature Settings

A Nature Setting is a natural looking habitat in a dôme or park, it will let the visitor experience a natural environment and the visitor is regularly surprised by encounters with animals. By making as much use as possible of natural secretions such as water, hardy green bushes, rockeries and small differences in height, the natural character of a dôme or park is not disturbed.

 

When constructing a Nature Setting, indigenous plants and materials are used. A Nature Setting is created through the techniques ‘Landscape Immersion’, ‘Less Money, More Value’ and ‘Meet & Greet’.

Landscape Immersion - Zoo Consultants

Landscape Immersion

Landscape Immersion is a technique that ensures the visitor to feel completely immersed in nature. Creating a specific routing in the park, where shrubs and trees and small differences in height deprive the view of what will be seen after a next turn, will built up the tension. Unexpected glances to Nature Settings elsewhere on the route also generate tension to what the visitor can expect.

Less Money, more value

Projects are realized with a lot of creativity, where investments are kept as low as possible (less money). Thanks to these limited investments, innovations can be realized regularly in the park, without any capital destruction taking place. Due to the many developments, the experience value of the park will increase and repeat visits will be stimulated (more value).

Meet en Greet - Zoo Consulants

Meet en Greet

The principle Meet & Greet creates special encounters between visitor and animal. Thanks to the ingeniously designed biotopes and specific activities, humans and animals come very close together. This principle is clearly reflected in the so-called transit areas: biotopes where visitors can walk through and encounter the animals without barriers. The integration of Meet & Greet not only promotes the experience, the special experience also increases awareness.
