Helsingborg must visit-Tropikariet Private Zoo, Sweden

I have written about the Madagascar Lemurs at Tropikariet Private Zoo in this earlier post. This post shares some more posts.
Tropikariet has about 3 floors- one dedicated to rainforest, one dedicated to animals from Africa and so on. Fishes and aquatic life takes one floor- we can dip our hand in water and let the fishes clean our hand- it is a nice experience. We can also touch a few under water species

There are lot of birds. They are not caged but indoor area feels very limited for these birds to fly around.

World's smallest monkey... These were difficult to photograph as they are randomly on the move, fast.

Tropikariet entry fee as per their website was 100 SKK (about 1000 INR), but when I went in, I was told the fee is 120 SKK. Now the website shows 110 SKK.

Also you can club visit to Tropikariet with visit to Fredriksdal- Open air museum and botanical garden. Bus No.1 or 7 and few other buses can take you near Fredriksdal (get down at stop Olympia).  Tropikariet is about a 1km away from bus stop, not 50 meters as stated on their website. You can't buy bus tickets in the bus in Sweden- you should buy at various counters. Tropikariet ticket counter won't sell bus tickets- but you can buy it from the ticket counter of Fredriksdal, which is about 200 meters from Tropikariet.

You can spend 1-2 hours at Tropikariet. If you love animals, this is a must visit in Helsingborg. But you can't touch them or pet them, so it is limiting to some extent. Check their opening hours before visit. There is also a cafe and souvenir shop in ground level. Tropikariet being privately owned and operated, they seem to be constrained by space. If they can get some open campus I am sure they can make the zoo much more interactive.
