Living on the Côte d'Azur and being a mother of 4 daughters and a grandchild, thus is a place I gave visited often. Nice and clean, lots of cheap snack bars. You drive round in your car, so good even if the weather isn't.

The weather wasn't great so we thought we'd visit the zoo. I was dreading it somewhat after reading some of the reviews on here, and maybe because my expectations had been lowered somewhat, I thought that it was actually a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. The children were happy to watch the elephants being fed, the tigers... More

This is not a great zoo. It may have been 30 years ago but it is not now. It is very barren between animal enclosures, there are no shows, and generally it is a strip down bare bones zoo. However. After the hustle and bustle of the busy south of France it was very quiet. My kids of 7 and... More

We had been concerned by the poor reviews by others but our youngest son wanted to visit a zoo and being in Frejus we decided to visit this one. Whilst not very large or developed we thought the zoo was organised, clean and well maintained and, most importantly the animals looked to be well cared for. The added advantage of... More

I was actually dreading coming here after reading some of the awful reviews..."chained, starving animals who look depressed. Run down" etc. After reading the very few good reviews, I'm glad I braved it (with my husband and 2 & 4yo). The zoo was charming in a rustic, outback kind of way. You could walk or drive around. The animals were... More

This is an old Zoo that has never been looked after. Animals are chained and most look sad and depressed. All you hate about zoo is there. To avoid at all cost . This place should be shut down.

This is our first time to frejus, we have come with our young family and decided to visit the zoo after seeing the signs near our camp site. OMG what a shock we got, the cost is so high for what you get, i wouldnt mind if some money went back into caring for the animals but it clearly does... More

I visited this place back in the 90's and was shocked to see it was still open after all these years. At the time I hated the place for all the other people have said about it and reported it to WSPA. All those who have felt the same, on reading the comments you do. You should report it to... More

We actually found our visit here very , very depressing. The animals do not look content, the park is a bit drab, the price is way too much. Sorry, but we personally would not return or recommend a visit.

They need to close this park down and give the animals to a Zoo that cares about animal welfare. We all came away feeling despondent and depressed.
