We visited in the 2nd week of Easter hols, when French schools had returned. For most of the day we were on our own in the zoo with the animals which was exciting. The zoo is small enough to get round and see everything and feel quite intimate, but there are lots of interesting things to see and get involved with. We say Racoons, penguins, wolves and otters being fed- the otters seemed the most vicious believe it or not. Staff were great and helpful and gave interesting facts. The food was good , for a zoo. Even things like a hall of mirrors was a good laugh. The 'petting' farmyard was brilliant- especially for yound kids. Inexpensive compared to other zoos but really good value and a full day out. Highly recommended for children and adults.

We were unsure about visting the zoo whilst on holiday as zoo's never seem to take up much time to visit. however we are glad we did.
The zoo had a large number of rare species, and took a majority of the day to walk round the whole zoo.
It was well priced compared to zoos we have visited in the uk.
The food from the cantene was good. Overall a very enjoyable visit.

The Zoo de Jurques is a great place to take your kids. They have a wide selections of mammals and lizards, including giraffes. There's also a pretty amusing parrot show.

For the kids, there's a play area including a big inflated house they can jump around in.

There's a restaurant on site, as well as a gift store.

And there's a petting zoo, including a rather lively donkey.

Easy access from the autoroute and then one small road, site well marked.
