Not impressed

It was more a day out to a park that to a Zoo. There are not many animals and not much to do but it is very expensive.

Was a good, if pricy day out, we went on a very hot day, so a lot of the animals were "hiding" in the shade, however the animals we saw was great, good start to the zoo - saw giraffes and zebras which are my kids favourite, the Penguins were fun to watch as well. All in all a good... More

This zoo was closed for 6 years before being reopened in April 2014. I think it looks beautiful now. Everything is still very new and all the exhibits look fantastic. When rebuilding the zoo, their aim was to have the animals live in natural enclosures that look like their wild habitats. I certainly think they achieved that! The Amazon area... More

I went to the zoo yesterday and was very happy with what I saw. The zoo was a nice size so easy to have a good look round I'm 4hrs at your leisure. My top tip would be to check at the entrance for feeding times and plan your trip accordingly. Do not go on very hot or very cold... More

was disappointed by the little number of animals on display. The monkeys were super hard to spot, and apart from the girafes, who are in the very center, there is not much to see

We were initially discouraged by reading older reviews of the zoo. However, the entire place appears to have been recently renovated. It has a very nice setup and we could see all the animals that were there and from a fairly close distance. Animals did not look miserable and the kids enjoyed it a lot. It is fairly priced.

The parc is located on the edge of the city and pretty easy to get to. We had a very enjoyable afternoon. The animal enclosures are very nice and seem to be agreeable to the animals. I do not enjoy visiting a zoo that I leave feeling so bad for the animals. The zoo was rehabbed and just reopened in... More

We went to this zoo on our trip to Paris this week and although it is extremely well maintained and clean, unfortunately there is very few animals to see like previous reviewers mention. Most of the time the animals are nowhere to be seen, hiding in blind spots. Although great for the animals obviously, try to explain this to kids... More

The zoo had an interesting animals ( not a lot ) but enough animals to call it a zoo ;) Nice place to visit if you understand... More

The Paris Zoo has all the typical variety of animals that kids would want to see from lions to giraffes to rhinos to different big cat species etc. The plus however is that the grounds are very well maintained, the animals all look healthy and their enclosures are very clean. Way finding is well studied in a manner that takes... More
