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

Although there are not that many animals and birds as some zoos, the one they have are in well-managed naturalized settings. The zoo is spread out, so walking the whole thing with small children could be a challenge. The animals are from all over the world, some rare or endangered, with descriptions of habitats and populations in both French and... More

This was a lot different from most zoos as it's very spaced out so be prepared for a lot of walking to each exhibit. The rainforest section was 6 euros and was definitely worth it and made the whole trip with while

We decided to visit the zoo this year as we had done the safari park the previous year. It is free in and there is a small fee for special exhibits if you want to go in. However it is a huge zoo and takes several hours to get around, which is fine if its not too hot ( which... More

We visited on a hot day in August, which may have affected our perception of this zoo. The grounds are extensive and be prepared for a lot of walking with some hilly bits - if you have small children you may want to take a buggy. There is not much shade so bottles of water and hats already recommended. There... More
