“Fantastic Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I really appreciate the experience in the zoo and how they introduce visitors to the various viewing areas. You can get really nice shots and it really calm which help make the visit more enjoyable.
A must to visit in Guadeloupe, will however appreciate that toilet and refreshments area by made more accessible instead of having to cross the street to the restaurant on the other side.
You must also carry drinks because the tour takes sometimes.

“More than a zoo - a fantastic tropical rainforest experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

We brought our 6-year old daughter here, not expecting much more than your average animal park, and boy were we surprised! The entire park is completely integrated within the mountainous tropical rainforest of Guadeloupe's National Park, and the setting is absolutely spectacular. Small pathways cut through thick swaths of forest leading to many different (mainly) local species. The animals all look extremely healthy and well looked after, and simply walking through the park is a marvel. Another highlight is the Canope...(canopy in English), a treetop circuit of wooden suspension bridges through the jungle. There is a smaller circuit for younger kids as well.
Across the street from the park, we had a nice lunch at the cafe which serves salads sandwiches in an ecofriendly environment. Everything is compostable and recyclable. And there is also a great ziplining park there called Le Tapeur - with courses through the rainforest for adult thrill seekers and children alike. My daughter adored the children's course, which takes about 20 minutes but you can do it as many times as you like.
In short, the Parc des Mamelles and it's surroundings are not to be missed!
