We picked up a leaflet from the tourist office and decided to take our 2 grandchildren here for a day out.
I know this was outside peak-season, but we were surprised that there were only 3 other cars in the car-park when we arrived at midday. Reception was incredibly casual - just one man sitting at a trestle table in his garden, selling tickets.
While my husband purchased the tickets, I visited the toilets with the children. They took one look and both refused to use the facilities but preferred to use the bushes outside. The ladies were full of wind-blown litter and leaves etc and generally very uncared for. The gents had a typical squat French toilet which was still full of the previous occupants leavings.
I came out and complained to the owner about the state of the toilets. He ranted on about English standards of hygiene, with his wife yelling abuse from the house. He then returned our €22 entrance fee and peremptorily ordered us off the premises.
As we sat in our car in the car-park discussing what do do now, the proprietor came out and made offensive gestures yelling at us to leave immediately.
We never actually saw inside the park although we could see a rather sad looking llama peering over the hedge. The whole place looked rather run-down and over-priced.

We found the Cactus Park in Bessan by conicidence after the wrong road turn (literally). It was one of the most surprising experiences, park of flowers and animals being led with great enthusiasm of a single person. We had the best time there, made some nice pictures and had several close encounters with animals (something we could never experience in a "proper" zoo). I can only recommend the Cactus park - it's not fancy in any way, you can't buy food here, but it's a small and very special place.
