Webcams

The webcams in the stables are switched off between 7:00 and 17:00 for privacy reasons.

Watch the TAPIRS, ELEPHANTS, BLACK RHINO, OKAPI’S and INDIAN RHINO live via these webcams. Note: the light you see in the evening is infrared light and is not visible in the accommodation (eg. a remote control also works with infrared light).

MALAYAN TAPIR

On Saturday evening 2 October, a Malayan tapir was born in Blijdorp Zoo, after a gestation period of over 400 days. Her name is Krissy. She is still brown with white stripes. After about three months the stripes and spots of her fur start to fade and within six months they have almost completely disappeared. When do you come and admire Krissy? More about Krissy >

asian elephants

On May 5th 2021, an Asian elephant was born. It is the fifteenth healthy elephant born in Rotterdam. For the twenty-year-old mother Bangka this is her third young. The elephant family at Blijdorp has a tight social structure. Her mother Irma has supported Bangka during her previous births (Sunay & Faya).

PLEASE NOTE: The indoor cam is turned off between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm. The elephants stay outside from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
