No small cages here. Focused on Canadian wildlife. Animals roaming "free" in natural habitat, as much as a zoo can provide.

i never went so close to wild animals walking around. The train going in the zoo was well protected for good reason. I believe we went nearby around 20 bears at least, american bisons, amazingly huge wolves, numerous Virginia deers, and so on... All that while crossing some restored pioneers places that where we felt like having made a jump... More

Charlie was, is a very tame Cougar after having lived with humans all his life. Some how Charlie got out , no person claiming him , and so the MNR and Zoo... More

We discovered this attraction when planning for a trailer camping trip to the Saguenay region of Quebec. The zoo's website was impressive and we decided to put it on our list of places to see, since it seemed to host the animals in a way unlike most zoos who inevitably must use cages. The fact that they feature only animals... More

I think the last time I visited this place was when I was 10yrs old. Now 50, I visited with my sponsor little brother as well as my sister and her son. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed the little train ride thru the wild. Very clean and very well organize place to visit.

You can't visit Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region without spending at least half a day at this Zoo! Start with the train where you are in cage-wagons. You're in and animals are free ranging outside! Wow! The one hour tour will give you plenty of chance to watch bears, elk, deer, moose, caribou, wolves, prairie dogs and many more. Moreover, you will pass... More

This was our first visit in 20 years and I must say i was impressed by the zoo. It is vastly spacious and animals can be seen from various spots as they are not kept in cage. Even if the parking is full, it doesn't seem overcrowded. The hour-long train ride is a must, you can see many species in... More

So spacious! At times it was more like being in a national park than in the zoo. My son and I spent 6 1/2 hours here and we loved every minute of it. A great place to bring kids. Highlights included the hour-long train ride (learning the words for 'right' and 'left' before embarking would be helpful for all you... More
