The drive to the park is lovely through the Gorge, so is the natural surroundings in witch the park is situated. The entry to the park w tourist office is nicely built and has almost a jurassic kind of feel to it. However, as soon as our interactions with the staff started, expectations dropped. Lady at counter didn't really give... More

A wolf sanctuary - great idee - lot's of nice hikes around and worth a visit. Wolfs can only be seen from behind big glass walls - a measure to not disturb the wolfs. But in my view it removes some of the close impression towards these animals. The glass is like a big distance gap and it removes the... More

We spent much of a day visiting the wolf park and observing its inhabitants. With a bit of patience you can get excellent, close views of the animals. If I were a French speaker I would definitely give this place five stars. But as an English speaker I missed out on the various presentations given in French. The park is... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the park. It is very well planned and organized. It is set up so you can view the wolves from various station. A lot of information is provided about the wolves and the park. We drove from Nice but stopped at Eze on the way which was a mistake. If you are going to... More

We did a day trip with friends and our two 6 year old boys. The park is natural forest. We just missed the first feeding of the Canadian wolves however the keeped was still there and spend a good 30 minutes talking about the wolves, the park and answered questions. We walked along the nature trail and watched the feeding... More

We were in the area and were curious about this park. We were a bit dissapointed as we walked all through the park in 30 minutes. We did not attend any animations as timing was inconvenient (long wait). we thought that the park would be good for smal children, but just watching the wolves through some glass windows was not...

We were a little disappointed in the park, the wolves seemed almost tame especially when the keepers went into the enclosures to feed them. But it is a brilliant idea and the area is outstandingly beautiful with plenty of paths to walk inside and outside the park.

An incredible experience, good for all ages! The park is so well organized that the interest is kept high all throughout the visit. We spent 4 hours on-site without even noticing. Especially recommended: the tutorial movies explaining the wolves but also their interaction with their environment. The staff is particularly friendly, available and helpful. Highly recommended for nature lovers and... More

We went with the kids and originally went the wrong way to the entrance and with young kids this was hard going! Signs are not great to direct you to the actual entrance of the park. The park is not pram friendly so we had to carry the baby's. Recommend a baby carrier! The experience once in the park is... More

The Alpha wolf park is on the boundary of the Mercantour National Park - just an hour and a quarter from Nice. It was located here as it was the first place that wild wolves had been seen here in France for a long time, in the early 1980s. The anilmals live in spacious enclosures with accessible hides so you... More
