HOW EVERYTHING BEGAN
Croatian Sahara with its mini zoo is a real tourist attraction that attracts more and more visitors from all over Croatia every day. The phenomenon of sands prompted the idea of establishing a zoo, and in order to emphasize the sands themselves first animals we brought here were camels. In 2016, the first three camels arrived in Đurđevac, a one-humped male and a two-humped female with their cub, and a year later another male. With the help of the citizens, the camels were given appropriate names, Tomica, Dina, Đurđica and Romeo. The camels came to Đurđevac from Germany, and they were placed just in front of the Old Town fortress in the dwellings of the Croatian Sahara, which were made especially for them. They are cared for by a team of specially trained groomers who have undergone special training on a camel farm in Austria.
GOOD TO KNOW
Our camels Đurđica, Dina, Tomica and Romeo have already won many sympathies with their kindness and charm, and they are frequent guests on numerous national TV shows.
Along with camels, our small zoo is also home to playful dwarf goats, sheep, horses, donkeys, indigenous poultry and llamas. It is planned to open a Podravina oasis that will house many other indigenous animals adapted to interact with children.
