This place is worth a visit- the parking is outside and it gets busy so if you are a way it's worth taking your picnic in with you. Also be aware it's a big venue - there are some sense de visit signs around -...More

This really feels like a zoo that’s run for profit rather than the enjoyment of the animals and visitors. We’d previously been to parc animalier in the Pyrenees which was fantastic and really put this zoo to shame. The variety of animals here is good...More

As zoos go, this is a nice friendly smaller example. The animals appear well cared for although the enclosures seem small. Good to see conservation involvement. Good facilities BUT we were surprised to find a complete lack of vegetarian compatible food from the various kiosks....More

This zoo is so well organised, and a joy to visit. The animals live in such lovely natural surroundings with plenty of space compared to other zoos I have visited. The poplar bears have a really big pool. The 'route' is clearly marked so that...More

This zoo is very impressive. From the flamingos at the entrance, to the giraffes which you can see at head height, to the extensive collection of big cats and monkeys, we spent 4 hours here and there was plenty to interest our children. We enjoyed...More
