A surprise in Paris

I visited the zoo in February 2016. It was freezing and raining but this did not affect my experience in any way! The zoo is full of information about each animal with decent sized pens for them to roam about in. There is a wide variety of animals to see here. The price of entry is relatively cheap but the...

Nice easy walk around the zoo. Perfect if you have a few hours to kill. It seems small as you walk around until you turn the corner and see how much more there is to see. Snack prices are a bit expensive but not what you wouldnt expect (€5 for a hotdog). Recommend :)

If you have an afternoon to kill in Paris and want a low intensity walk and have some scientific curiosity, come here after 16:00 o'clock as the place is almost empty and some animals get fed around that time. We were unlucky as it started to rain and still we had a wonderful time. The vivarium is really nice.

Who would have thought that there was a zoo right in the heart of Paris? A pretty good selection of animals. But, I was a bit overwhelmed by the smell when I first entered the zoo and some of the primates looked depressed. The park itself is quite lovely but they really have to give more space to the larger... More

Great to visit if youve got an afternoon to kill. I wouldnt say its good to plan a full day here but definitely worth a visit for 3 hours or so. Staff were all very friendly and food was reasonable as far as paris prices go. At 22 euros each to get in its fairly priced. All enclosures were well... More

Wasn't aware that there was a zoo in Paris until I ran past it on the marathon. Decided to come and pay it a visit. It's only recently reopened having been totally redeveloped and what a good job they've done. Whilst compact the exhibits have spacious enclosures. Wide paths lead you through the zoo in a well laid out route.... More

I find some zoos quite depressing, but this one is fantastic! Nearly all of the animals have a good amount of space, it was really quiet and very clean! The exhibits were interesting, but not many English signs. Also I would advise taking a packed lunch as the food isn't great there. Best animals were the penguins, baboons, bush dogs... More

Cleverly designed enclosures with happy-looking animals in very good condition, Don't miss the giant tropical glasshouse with birds flying free inside.

We've visited a few city zoos and this one was better than most. The layout and size of enclosures are good for the space available. The variety was good and their environments excellent. €22 didn't seem too much to pay, we stayed 1/2 a day. The information signs could have been multi lingual given what a tourist city this is....

The zoo it is very small and crowded with very few species. They announced a seal show but when started they just fed the animals and nothing more. You can see everything in less than an hour for example the zoo of Prague, Vienna and Budapest you can stay whole day and you will not see all. In the other... More
