Rats and pigeons. Those are probably the animals you think of when you think of wildlife in Rotterdam. But there is much more fauna to be found in this city than you might think. Especially at night, many creatures come out of hiding to forage about while hedgehogs and bats take over the forest. Join our Night Safari of the Kralingse Bos to find out where these animals are coming from and what they do at night!
In small groups, we will go on our nighttime expedition of the Kralingse Bos to find the most famous critter of the night: bats. The ecologists of Bureau Stadsnatuur will take you on an exclusive tour of the forest to find these hidden creatures. See the forest like you have never seen it before through thermal cameras while experts inform you about the flora and fauna. Since we do not want to harm or spook the animals, there are very limited available tickets. So, sign up quickly!
