In the largest pasture of Hof van Eckberge you will find our donkeys. In North and East Africa, where donkeys originally come from, they are widely used as pack donkeys. After all, donkeys are not afraid to walk up a steep slope with some extra weight. In our zoo, all they have to do is have fun. Hay in abundance, play and occasionally make a big noise. If a zookeeper walks in sight you can hear them balking from afar!

General information Donkey

Scientific name: Equus africanus asinus

Donkeys, measured from their shoulders, average between 95 and 140 cm in height. They have long ears, a plume at the end of their tail and great stamina. They have gray, white or brownish fur. Often the nose, belly and inside of the legs are lighter in color than the rest. Donkeys can make very loud noises, the bray is the loudest. You can hear this from miles away.
