Portfolio

In General

 

We are regularly approached by governments, investors and operators for imagineering, analyses, second opinions and development with regard to Zoos, Wildlife Parks, Dômes and Wildlife Resorts.

A team of professionals with extensive experience is formed for each project.

 

We currently have a number of projects in our portfolio that are in a dynamic situation.

If you are interested in being involved in a project, we kindly request you to contact us.

 

 

Participation

In addition to the fact that we are approached to participate in developments in the field of nature experiences, we have also basically elaborated a number of experience concepts in an Impression Imagineering. Here we have broadly described and visualized our ideas.

 

Do you have an idea, a location or do you want to develop something in the field of day and / or overnight recreation? Perhaps we can do something for each other!

Butterfly World Amsterdam

 

A beautiful plan has been prepared for shopping mall Akerpoort in Amsterdam; a special day attraction for the whole family; Butterfly World Amsterdam – Akerpoort Adventure. We see it as a creative addition to the various shops, restaurants and Monkey Town. The owner has indicated that a (butterfly) dome of approx. 6,500m² could possibly be realized on the top (parking) deck.

 

In Butterfly World Amsterdam you will not only be able to admire the most beautiful butterflies, but a variety of animal species; especially nectarivores.

 

“Butterfly Wonderland” is located in the dome and mainly has flora which the animal species present can feed on. These are not only insects such as butterflies and bees, but also bird species such as the small hummingbird, honey sucker or sugar bird, all beautiful coloured bird species with a typical long and curved beak.

 

The also integrated experience centre “Magic Moments” is mainly dedicated to experience and wonder.

 

There is a catering facility with in particular delicacies specially grafted on honey products. Merchandise is also available, especially products related to what one could see and taste at Butterfly World Amsterdam.

 

The location is easily accessible by car via various roads, but there is also a good connection to public transport.

 

Status:

Due to the corona problems, the project has been put on hold. We hope to be able to resume the project in the middle of the autumn.

MicroMania

 

MicroMania is an indoor nature experience with a large theme restaurant, located in a beautiful natural area with an outdoor play area and plenty of parking spaces.

 

MicroMania is a new concept with a mixture of various nature experiences for which there is no collective name yet. We call it a “Nature Discovery Dôme”. The unique thing about the MicroMania concept – of which we are one of the first – is that we introduce the visitor to geology, nature and animals. All in a non-traditional way, but in a form in which nature and the most modern techniques will merge. By making use of innovative technologies, the visitor would get a lifelike nature experience with animals from their own natural habitat.

Any animals present should be kept in such a natural and animal-friendly manner as possible. Taking into account the most modern aspects of animal welfare, smaller special animal species will be able to tell beautiful stories about nature and conservation.

 

MicroMania is aimed at a wide audience of all ages. It is a place where everyone is amazed, entertained and learns new things.

 

Status:

In collaboration with various parties, we are actively looking for a suitable location, preferably in the municipality of Lochem.

 

MicroMania has its own website www.micromanialochem.nl; through this dynamic website you can always stay informed of current developments. The website will continue to be expanded. You can also register for the newsletter by sending an email to info@micromanialochem.nl

SuriDôme

 

SuriDôme is an indoor day attraction of approximately 1.2 hectares. The SuriDôme is a unique and innovative nature and culture experience based on the animals that live in the seas, rivers and lakes of Suriname. The audience is brought here immediately upon arrival in a part of Suriname. You imagine yourself on the other side of the ocean for a while.

 

In addition to the animal experience, SuriDôme allows the audience to enjoy film experiences and various performances. The Dôme also contains a restaurant with a varied assortment and many terraces. Children can have a great time in the adventurous indoor play area. There will also be a large outdoor play jungle with a good view from the terraces and conservatories. In addition, the Dôme contains a reception, a ZOOvenirshop, office spaces, various storage options and an adjacent and naturally designed park.

 

SuriDôme will be completely landscaped and integrated in a natural way and the parking facility will also have a natural appearance, so that the experience of nature already starts in the parking park.

The concept is available. Are you interested and do you have possibilities for realization? Then contact us for more information.

Pangea Parc

 

Pangea Parc is an accommodation of approximately 1.5 hectares with an adjacent outdoor experience “Pangea Expedition” of approximately 4 hectares. The visitor experiences a variety of exciting and spectacular experiences here.

 

Pangea Parc contains the largest and most exciting “Reptilion” in Europe, where the public is immersed in a unique and innovative experience. In addition, the indoor accommodation contains a “Night Safari”, where one goes on an exciting safari with nocturnal animals, an “Insectarium” where the public can enter the insect world and various Aquaria. Pangea Parc also contains a Foodcourt with an extensive range. In the largest and most natural indoor playground “Adventure Arena”, children will enjoy themselves to their heart’s content between various large palm trees and in the “Theatron” you can enjoy a variety of performances and film experiences.

 

In “Pangea Expedition” the audience learns all about the origin of animal species, through the shifting of the supercontinent Pangea. Very slowly the continents drifted apart and the animals on the continents developed separately from each other and adapted to their own environment. The audience here comes face to face with lifelike dinosaurs, but also with some species of crocodiles, alligators, sharks, sturgeons and catfish.

The plan is there! We are only looking for an interesting location for this concept.

Arusha Wildlife Dreamland

 

Arusha Wildlife Dreamland is a complete and special day attraction (with accommodation options). The attraction focuses on the entire family, on families and groups, seniors and care institutions, with the senior target group becoming increasingly important in the coming years due to demographic developments in the Netherlands.

 

Arusha Wildlife Dreamland is a Resort, consisting of approximately 230 lodges and 80 safari tents. The center facilities of Arusha Resort and the entrance to the Zoo will be housed in Arusha Dôme. The concept takes visitors to Africa. Immediately upon entering, the audience imagines themselves in Arusha (Tanzania). The atmosphere is reminiscent of the movie “Out of Africa”. From the terrace of the restaurant, the public has a view of the plain with giraffes, impalas and zebras. The day visitors can follow an exciting route where they always come face to face with African animal species. A number of islands for the benefit of monkeys will be developed, which the holidaymakers of the lodges will have a unique view of.

 

The Dôme will include MonkeyWorld, swimming pool, game and bowling facilities and various dining options in Jungle atmospheres.

 

Status:

We are in talks with our partners about possible partnerships, a number of interested parties have come forward.
