An exciting treasure hunt right across Basel Zoo


Beloved Basil, one of the last living staffs of the city of Basel (known as a “Baselstab”), takes the whole family on a playful journey of discovery through Basel Zoo, locally known as the “Zolli”. The kids are equipped with a looking glass, a colourful sports bag and a puzzle book – this is packed full of funny and astounding information about the animals. During the tour, Basil will ask the little animal fans a series of questions. Those who correctly solve all the puzzles will be rewarded with a surprise at the end.
