Veluwezoom National Park, Netherlands

Veluwezoom National Park is a part of the forest and heaths between  Arnhem and Dieren (Gelderland, Netherlands). It is one of the oldest national parks of  The Netherlands. Many animals feel at home here due to the large area (5000 hectares) and the varied landscape. In this area the herbivorous animals are common: Scottish Highlanders, Icelandic horses, deers. The largest mammal of the Netherlands is elk.  But smaller animals also find home here such as boars, hares, foxes and squirrels. In future Veluwezoom will be connected to the Oostvaardersplassen area in Flevoland, Netherlands and wild nature areas in Germany.
