Well I dont know about you guys but while looking throuhg the pictures I was constantly thinking how I could improve my cages and display units. Hmmmm make you think.
I like the glass aliminium frames. Looks very cool and gives you many options

That is the dream! Thanks for sharing. I am looking at doing natural displays like this for a new park theme I am trying and I have taken some great ideas from this. The smaller aluminum ages are very similar to the style I have made but just perfected. Truly inspiring!

Well they do have outside enclosures, but the gardens open from May to ....(september?). While you guys are going to the end of summer, here spring has just started. Mostly european species are presented outside, most are vipers and most if not all hibernate thats why pics where all taken inside. The gardens are not open at this moment.

Here are some pics from a few years ago:

I've only visited Addo reptile park, but the difference is not that big for the outside enclosures. Of course, the species kept outside in Addo (like rattlesnakes, cobra's, mamba's, boomslang etc.) could never be kept outside in the Netherlands or Germany.

Thanks all for the nice comments, Since all of you are so interested in some good inspiration, I'll post some pics from the Zoo in Berlin and the Zoo in Rotterdam (Netherlands)

Awesome, if I ever go to Germany/Netherlands I am going to visit as many zoos as possible. The enclosures are astounding!
