“Great day out”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visited this safari park on a Thursday in early April it was extremely quiet as we were outside of the French school holidays but it was absolutely fantastic. We started off driving through the park where there are the usual suspects but also some unusual animals. Additionally there were bears which I had never seen before. Then we walked around the traditional zoo part and had lunch. Food was good - great choice, good quality and good value for money. We saw loads of animals. We go to Longleat quite a lot in the UK and this was as good.

Definitely recommend.

“very expensive”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

it is not worth the money. not a bad zoo, but you expect more for the price paid. the food in the self-service restaurant was of very-very poor quality. however, the kids loved it..

“Not the best”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This place isn't a patch on most French Zoos or UK Safari Parks.

The drive through section is poorly managed and supervised. Far too many vehicles allowed through so get too close together. The French pay no regard to the rules and so swap lanes without regard to anyone else and think nothing of stopping for ages to allow the lions to get nearer to take photos!

The walk through section was large spaces between very few animals. Entrance,Cafe and shop expensive but we expected that. Not worth a second visit.

Worth noting the hilly and rough terain in the walking part, probably not the best location for people with walking issues or wheelchair users.

“Nice place with a lot of animals”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This was worth the visit. It's a lot of animals to be seen from the car - but also quite many in the walking part. The kids could also pet some goats. Additional: the park seems to treat the animals quite OK; it's not a "polar bear in a small cage-type of zoo".

One negative thing: the clerks in the cafeteria didn't speek a word English.

“Great safari park in South of France”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Sigean is not cheap to get in, but there is a good range of animals to see and the facilities are very good
