(WorldKings.org) Rimbula section in Wildlands, which at 18,000 m2, is the largest zoo jungle hall in the world.

Wildlands, also known as Wildlands Adventure Zoo Emmen, is a zoo in Emmen, the Netherlands. It opened in March 2016, replacing the Emmen Zoo. Wildlands is an adventure theme park with four main areas: Jungola, Serenga, Nortica and Animazia.

Jungola is jungle-themed and displays butterflies, tropical birds, large reptiles (such as Chinese alligators and pythons), ring-tailed lemurs, lar gibbons, and small-clawed otters, and Asian elephants. The most prominent feature of Jungola is the indoor tropical rainforest hall Rimbula, which at 18,000 m2 (190,000 sq ft) is the largest zoo jungle hall in the world and the largest greenhouse in Europe.

Serenga is the African savanna section and is home to species such as lion, Grant's zebras, Rothschild's giraffes, white rhinoceros and hamadryas baboons, but also Australian red-necked wallabies. Nortica is aimed at cold oceans and is home to polar bears, Californian sea lions, South American fur seal,s and Humboldt penguins. The final main section, Animazia, is a large indoor playground, but also home to an aquarium with species such as corals, green sea turtles, and tropical fish.

Contained within a humidity-controlled greenhouse, the rainforest is comprised of more than 16,000 tropical plants of around 350 different species and even includes a river upon which visitors can take a boat ride through the jungle. Rimbula is also home to more than 50 animal species, ranging from leafcutter ants right up to a herd of Asian elephants.
