Where are they?

Some bison are fitted with GSM/GPS- collars. If you would like to know where the bison currently are in the Kraansvlak area, check out the map below.

Sometimes the collar is unable to send the current position of an animal due to bad GSM coverage at the location of the animal at that time. In that case it will give the position of an antenna location nearby. The next position on the map will be correct again.

We would like to point out that public is requested to stay on the Bison Trail to not disturb the flora and fauna present. This part of Zuid-Kennemerland National Park is designated as resting area for all the fauna present in this Natura 2000 protected area. Leaving the path will have negative consequences for the research carried out into the diverse ecological aspects of the bison, vegetation and several animals that come over to this area for their rest. It is not allowed to wander around in the bison area. We strongly advise our visitors to stay on the path and follow the guidelines, see by-yourself.


! Since January 25th 2018, the GPS positions of the bison herd are until further notice not longer available via this website. Unfortunately, and despite repeated requests, more and more reports reached us that there are visitors not following the guidelines. Guidelines are mentioned on this website and also at both entrances of the Bison Trail. We regret we have to take this action, especially for the many visitors that do follow the guidelines.
