Lots of variety of animals, however felt that the animals didn't have a lot of space. €56 for 2 adults & 2 children. We walked the entire zoo in about 1 hour. Not a bad day out overall

Now normally I don't like zoo's in general but this one has enough animals on show to keep your interest young or old. i think someone mentioned the gibbons they are a hot watching them or as said watching us is quite right. if you have young one take a hat for them and you come to that it catches the sun there and if the sea breeze is coming of the sea you don't realize how how it is.parking now that was fun I would park in the streets leading up to the zoo if you can it will save headaches/or get the train from the prom land train that is.

we visited this zoo for the first time with our young daughters (2,3) and they both loved it, it wasnt too big so they didnt get bored but still plenty of animals to see. They both loved the giraffes and loved the fact that you could get up so close to them. We were staying in saint jean de monts so the journey took us about an hour as we had our own car but we got there in the morning so it wasnt too busy and seeing as the temperture was in the 30's most of the week the girls enjoyed it better while it was cooler in the morning, will defo go back when we go this year

9 and 7 year old boys really enjoyed this, particularly the opportunity to hand feed the lorikeets. Gibbons also fun to watch. Or we're they watching us?
