The zoo is in a very nice spacious environment. There's many great animals to see and the best thing about it all, is that it's free.

I visited on a warm day 11 September 2014 and there seemed to be very few other people there. As others have commented, there's a lot of walking to do at this site. Apparently there's 11km of paths, although I didn't do all that! Also, there's much work going on at the site at present which results in path diversions.... More

I've been visiting Montpellier for the last 30 years and the zoo has always been on the agenda. Younger we used to have picnic there next to a small lake, feeding fishes with bread. They have plenty of animals (Giraffe, Bear, Lion, Hypo, Monkey, Wolf, ...) but after visiting the Zoo in Beauval (Loire Valley), I won't say it's a... More

The only good thing about this Zoo was that is free. The Zoo is placed in woodland area most of the time you walking on un even and very dusty alleyways ( not pushchair friendly ) When we visited it was a hot day, most of the animals were not to be seen or hiding in shade, too far away... More

My boyfriend and I took the blue tram from Comedie (in the direction of Mosson) and then a bus, the journey felt quite long so make sure you've eaten before you head off - as when you get there there's only one main restaurant at the zoo entrance (I think!). The enclosures for the animals are very large and full... More

I had to take the tram and bus to get to this zoo. To see each animal it was a long trek and the weather was hot too, make sure you bring bottles of water to drink. The animals looked healthy but they were always hiding or resting out of the hot sun so we did not see very much.... More

The zoo is a bit out of the way to get to (about 30 min from Comèdie if you don't have to wait for a bus at the transfer in St. Éloi), and we chose only to see the free section, but we loved the natural stroll though the pine-tree dotted hills... And of course seeing the animals. It was... More

So, we went to the zoo with high hopes - having looked online and seen fantastic photos - some as recent as June 2014, there were cheetahs, bears, lions and wolves - 2 of which aren't available at our local zoo. After aimlessly driving round in the busy car parks - yes plural we found a space in a rather... More
