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

Like the other reviews said, be prepared for a lot of walking! This Zoo gives it's animals a huge amount of space which is great to see. The enclosures are spread out so it will take time to see them all. There are steep hills so if you have a pram or wheelchair it may be difficult. An enjoyable way... More

This zoo is great – expect to do some walking – and if you are traveling with children like we were – try to take full day (4-6h). It is more fun in my opinion to have more time and not having to drag children on a high speed. The park is well maintained and in fact one of the... More

A bit of walking, yes. But really beautiful! The nature, ths smell of the trees. And then all the animaly in huuge places. I really liked it. Also the little jungle house (6.50 Euro) is worth it.
