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

When on holiday in the Languedoc region, en route to Montpellier, my parents told my sister and I they had a surprise for us. We had no idea just how bad it would be. As we neared our destination, we saw signs for a "zoo". As expected we were excited. It was free, what could be better? For a start,... More

We went today on a blisteringly hot day, so only walked to the lion & monkey enclosures after doing the Amazonian Greenhouse which has some amazing creatures inside - even one that this zoo addict had never seen before (a Coendou). The enclosures are huge, which is probably why you can't see the animals as they hang out at the... More

This is one of the best Zoos I have ever been to. It is very large and can easily swallow an entire afternoon so it's definitely worth bringing a picnic. There are loads of benches to stop at. There is a wealth of amazing wildlife on show here. There are very large enclosures for most of the animals, including leopards,... More

We have visited the premises last year, a part of our visit to Montpellier. It is one of the attractions listed for that area and we thought it would be a good fun for our little daughter. The zoo is such a big one and requires a lot of walking, which is exhausting. After a while you just get frustrated... More

We walked the 3 miles here and 3 miles back from the city centre and the zoo itself is quite large so another few miles there. The zoo is free of charge and the animals have large spaces so sometimes hard to spot them. This was fine with us as the quality of living is obviously better than in some... More

I love this place as a place for a family stroll, but if you're expecting a proper zoo then this isn't the place for you. It's more like a large park with animals dotted around that you happen to come across. It's great for children and for running. Plus it's free!

If you're looking for a place to run, that's the best place for that. It's free to enter and got really good place for a run in the dirt.

Be warned - this place is extremely big. You will need a couple of visits to get around it all. Our two little boys (4 and nearly 2) found it hard-going but enjoyed themselves. I would also not rely on the zoo for lunch as the café doesn't look too inviting. That the zoo is a free attraction obviously brings... More
