We are a small zoo, which focuses on breeding some exotic species of animals, but you can also see farm animals, as used to be the custom in the villages.

You can see camels, llamas, horses, goats, sheep, buffaloes, puma, exotic birds, meerkats, small domestic animals, lizards, frogs, monkeys, different kinds of parrots, poultry, turtles, porcupines, domestic cattle, donkeys, peacocks, ostriches, ...

Here we say you have "animals at your fingertips". Some you can feed, some you can pet, some you can watch...
If it is within our possibilities, we will be happy to talk to you and talk about our animals :-).
We also keep several protected and rare or critically endangered species. We can also boast of our own offspring.

And if any of our animals look familiar or familiar to you, that's possible too. We have several movie "stars" here.

When you are alone in the zoo after closing time, sit on a bench, for example in front of the llama enclosure, and watch them. Or watch the porcupines dig their burrows...
For children we have several play elements in the area, during the day they can also go to the enclosure to our small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs).

Calm, relaxed and sensible campers will be happy to welcome us with their motorhome. A place for camping is ready. It is a meadow at the top of the zoo in the quiet zone.
Since you will be camping in a paid and closed part of our grounds outside of zoo hours, there are a few rules to keep in mind.

Site for camping without camping.
A place is prepared for you in the upper part of the zoo where you will be alone and will not be disturbed by anyone. Visitors do not come there, so you will have peace and quiet. Your closest neighbours will be our horses and domestic buffaloes.
However, we are a zoo, so now and then, for example, our equipment will pass by to collect a bale of straw, etc. Admission to the zoo is included for the duration of your non-camping stay with us.

Access to the property.
Almost as far as you can drive on the asphalt. You enter the zoo from the back and here we allow you to pass through the horse pasture (the road is rutted, up a slight hill - see photo in gallery). We will open the entrance and exit for you. For this reason it is always necessary to make an appointment in advance to arrange arrival and then departure. As the zoo has opening hours for the public, you may have to wait a while before we can clear. So we prefer arrival/departure before or after closing hours. Everything is always by appointment :-), but please be understanding. We only have one hand.

Stay with us.
A few adult rules need to be respected :-).
Do not enter the pens with the animals. Don't pet the buffalo or cuddle the cougar... not a good idea.
Always keep puppies on a leash in the zoo and keep them well away from the enclosures.
You can feed the animals where it is allowed (information is on the enclosure), but only with our kibble. You can bring dry kibble to us, but do not feed it - always hand it to the keepers. Each animal has its own rations.

Zoo transport
When the zoo is open, the lower section adjacent to the farm closes. If you follow the rules, you can move around the upper part of the zoo without restrictions. You will be alone :-).
Due to operational reasons (waste water - grey water tanks, driving off the property...) , in the "pilot" operation we can only offer space for independent caravans and motorhomes. It is strictly forbidden to discharge grey water on the grass under the car. Thank you for your understanding.

An asphalt road leads almost to the back of the zoo property. The last 200 metres is a paved, gravel road. To the property itself you go through the horse paddock. The road is regularly ridden, up a slight hill. Of course, as on other similar paths, everything depends on the weather.


Chyňava is located in front of the Křivoklátsko Protected Landscape Area. There are many cycling routes through this region. One of the routes of the Křivoklástý circuit leads directly through Chyňava. You can go to Křivoklát, Dědkův Mlýn, Beroun, Klíčava,...

activities for kids

We have several play elements for children in the zoo. Barefoot trail, slide, trampoline ...


There are several marked paths around us. The Křivoklástko Protected Landscape Area is within easy reach.


Horse riding can be arranged in the next village. By prior arrangement and ordering in advance.

Other activities

We are also happy to offer you activities directly at our zoo. Lamatreking, goat trekking, you can become a keeper for a day. These activities must be booked in advance. Sometimes several weeks in advance. Arrangements must be made in advance.


All our rules are based on the reason "a normal person wouldn't do this". You're in a zoo, with animals, think about that first. Please keep things tidy, please take your rubbish away - we have containers for sorted waste. Do not feed the animals where it is not allowed and what it is not allowed with.Keep an eye on your dogs.We do not offer you the possibility to make a fire for safety reasons yet (we will build a fireplace for you in time).Do not pour anything into the grass - the grass is used as food for the animals. If traffic permits and you are not followed by another reservation, you can stay until the evening. Just make arrangements.Our assistance is always needed to arrive and depart, sometimes you may need to wait a while before we clear the animals, the ticket office - the traffic. Thank you for your understanding.

Visited personally by the campu.eu team. Our comments:

We visited the property ourselves and were absolutely charmed by it. It is a small zoo, but all the more "cosy". The animals are really at your fingertips. You get the feeling of such a family atmosphere. The no-camping area is all the way at the back in a slight hill, where you have peace and quiet.The way to the place is through the horse paddock and past the camels. Which is an experience in itself. With a camel running beside you and looking you in the eye. Or there's a herd around you. The "safari" feeling doesn't go away. The road is rutted with traffic. Unless you arrive in the monsoon season, you'll get to the place without any problems. All you need to do is make arrangements in advance to arrive - the zoo is being built by enthusiasts and there are no octopuses to be everywhere at once. It's only after closing time that it's the real deal. For example, go watch the porcupines in the evening when they come alive and watch them burrow. In the evening, be sure to go watch the camels move into their night quarters from the outdoor enclosure.

Everything was fine, nice, helpful people, beautiful place in total nature with many animals and search to the green. Only bad information about the place where the lamatrekking started, but that's a detail. Great, thank you, we enjoyed it.

Peace and quiet, spacious grounds, only animals kept us company. We recommend to diversify your stay by llama trekking - we really enjoyed the walk with the llamas. We would love to come back here again.
