We spent a very happy day out at Planet Sauvage, which you will find just SW of Nantes. It is set in about 10 acres of grounds, where you can drive around to each enclosure to see all the large African/Indian animals, including lions, Tigers, Elephants, Giraffes to name but a few.
The high-light for me was 'The Cite Marine' where you get to see 6 beautiful dolphins do a little show, its done very well and you can see the dolphins really are enjoying themselves. A little word of warning though, you are sat out in the open for about an hour with no cover, so take hats or plenty of sun cream or both if you are going on a hot day. The rest of the day you can meander through the pretty gardens and find the Parcour Jungle, which has high wooden netted walks over the monkey enclosure-some of which are very narrow and also quite steep, so be warned, its for the fit or the adventurous!
There are plenty of place to eat, but also plenty of picnic areas, one by the car park outside the animal trek and there is also one half-way around the trek.
It is not a bad price for a day out at 24 € per adult (cheaper if you book online) Be sure to arrive early for the safari trek as I could imagine it would be quite hectic in the afternoon-and most of the animals are snoozing!
