This Zoo is really large and would take hours to walk around by foot. Being able to ride Segways through this zoo was a great experience. These are really really easy to ride and they teach you really well how to ride them before you take off. Wear runners or something that are flat soled and comfortable as standing for... More

This is a well-presented park, focused mostly on reptiles and birds and where you can see lovely examples of the Cagou bird, the national symbol of New Caledonia. A great way to spend an hour or so :)

We really enjoyed our walk around the park. We got to see some Kagu up close, which was pretty special. The other birds, bats, reptiles and monkeys were interesting to see too. All of the enclosures were big, well maintained and full of vegetation for the animals. It was drizzling with rain the day we went but we were only... More

I was SO looking forward to see a collection of Tropical botanic gardens and the fact that when I got there, it said it had animals, was a slight bonus, and again thinking it be exotic but the gardens weren't gardens at all. You'll find more exotic flora when touring the whole country and in particular the east coast. The... More

We bravely took public transport to the Parc. The views on route were sensational. The park was a tranquil retreat from all the beaching we had been doing. I was surprised to see so many different birds, in large cages, several of the cockies 'spoke' to us. At the weekend, several buses did not turn up which was frustrating and... More
