For about half the cost of our local zoo you get a park that is about half a zoo big, so fair price in my opinion. It was pouring outside but inside it was nice and warm (that beats the zoo for me) Some species...More

We were lucky as we got to see the feeding of both the crocodiles and the turtles. Really many interesting and scary-looking animals but this park is so large that it doesn’t feel to crowded. The only negative factor was that the neighboring house was...More

We took our daughter and a friend - we all enjoyed the visit. The crocodiles were swimming and moving about - not something I had seen before.

This is a super half day out, we are a large family and all members really enjoyed the trip. Disabled and pushchair friendly. La Planete des Crocodile is out the way a bit but well worth the visit. It is located next to a huge...More

From the outside this place looks amazing. Inside is no disappointment. It's rich in information and the animals have a pretty good area to live in. Ended up spending nearly 2 hours here. Turtles and crocodiles and alligators. It's fascinating and a one off chance...More

Rainy day so we went here. Plenty of parking, nice entrance, great theming of the exhibits (Egypt, China, America's). Plan to eat before 14:00, because the cafe only serves ice cream after that time. Also, bring cash as the PIN machines refused our cards (cassiere...More

A giant glass dome over shadowed by the cooling towers of the nuclear power station, the crocodile planet is well worth a look. It's not huge, but even so we stayed for a couple of hours. It cost €32 to get in (2 adults, 1...More

We went as it's been pouring in France all week. Unfortunately we missed the feeding which we think would be really good. The torts are great. Feeding is in the afternoon I believe at 3pm. It's only really a couple of hours to get round.

It has been pouring with rain in France the past couple of days so we went for something to do inside. We had no idea what to expect, but weren't disapointed. Most signs are in English as well as French, but the talk was all...More
