I usually don't really like zoos, as I feel sad to see wild animals in their small pens... But the "Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien" is different, giving prominence to nature and forest. Apart from this and the animals themselves, I appreciated the explanations provided by people from the Zoo on the animals being fed. Do not miss the little train... More

What a concept. You are ferried around their (spacious, beautiful) territory in train-like cars. It is obvious the animals are so much happier than being shoved into confined quarters. It makes so much sense this way. Bravo and thank you, Canada.

Following the advice of a friend, we have visited this zoo while in the region. It is definitely worth it ! The train takes you on a 1-hour tour to see bears, wolves, caribous and many birds in a beautiful landscape. The polar bears are very interesting too as one can watch them swim. A nice place to go for... More

This was a nice Zoo/animal park, but it is pretty expensive for what you get. The animals seem to have a fair bit of space/good habitat and seemed healthy....except some of the chickens at the petting zoo that seemed stressed. The food was pretty so-so, so I would try and eat before or after.

A long way to drive from Quebec City but well worth the effort. We built Zoo Sauvage and the Lac St. Jean region into a stay in Quebec and spent two nights in the area. The Zoo/wildlife park was the highlight of our trip. The zoo itself is well laid out, well mapped and full of explanatory details that really... More

We drove a very long way from La Baie to visit the Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Felicien and it was totally worthwhile. We thought the entrance ticket was a little expensive but then realised that it included a one hour trip on a train through the secure fields where we saw black bears with their cubs, moose (which we had never...

It was a great zoo. It's very natural and the setting itself is worth a visit. The animals all look to be in good condition and have sufficient habitat. The only animal exhibiting some obsessive behavior was a Polar Bear. The train is the highlight of the zoo. You see lots of interesting animals (like black bears, elk, Grizzlies, and... More

We appreciate all comments and we read them all. We’re happy that you enjoyed your visit at our “out of the ordinary” Zoo. We work very hard to offer large and natural exhibits to our animals.

I keep on bringing guests to the zoo, wether in the summer and in the winter, and their reaction is always the same! They love it! To be able to see the animals in their natural habitat is a real treat.

The zoo was a great way to spend 4 hours and well worth the price of admission. When you arrive find out the feeding schedule and just follow the map based on that schedule. You will see all of the animals up close while eating. Also do not miss the tram ride which takes about an hour but allows you... More

We spent a whole day in this park. We have never seen something like this. It is awesome! The animals have so much room. And walking through the park it feels like being in a park but not in a Zoo! You have to go there if you have the possibility. There is a train which drives you through forest... More
