“Great Wolf reserve!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Recommended to visit by friends so we popped over this afternoon.... luckily it was open as we didn't know it had restricted opening times so you should check the website. €9 for Adults and many other concessions.

Great afternoon despite the wet weather. Not very busy given winter is fast approaching. Staff very pleasant and speak some English. Saw lots of wolves and feeding time at 4pm was really interesting. There is a movie which introduces the sanctuary and it can be viewed in English.

There is a gallery museum and that has some interesting exhibits. We also enjoyed the Angora Sheep, cute bunnies and the friendly baby goats.

Well worth a visit if you are in the Gueret area of the Limousin region of France.

“"Nature at it's best"”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

What a wonderful place to visit. A rare chance to get up close to France's wolves. This serene, superbly maintained wolf park is well worth investigating if you have a spare afternoon. You will be assured of a fantastic view of the wolves (you can also watch them being fed) and there is also the chance to get up close and personal with some farmyard friends too! The entrance fee is very good value and, as well as the animals, there is also a museum, video room, bar and gift shop to enjoy. Nature lovers be sure to stop by!

“Nice Day Out”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We came to this park a few years ago, it was a very nice place with great scenery. However we picked a day which was far too hot and all the wolves were asleep. would like to revisit on a cooler day to see more of them. Good gift shop and accept student discount.

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you like nature and the 'call of the wild', this place is a must see. A well laid out nature reserve with paths where people can walk around the reserve and see wolves close up (wolf part is separated by a double wire fence and/or viewing areas with plexi glass). The design of the reserve means that you are sure to see the wolves from one place or another. Several species of wolf can be found in the park, along with small animals for children to look at. Feeding times of the wolves vary (our day was at 3pm) - would be worth finding out before you go so you can see this also. Recorded information about wolves available to carry around with you - in several languages. A small museum and café also on site.
Location of the place is relatively well sign posted - park is located out of town amongst extensive woodlands.

“...but no Red Riding Hood.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Wolves running free in a large mountain/forest natural habitat, nothing like a zoo, can easily be observed interacting as a pack as they would in the wild. English-speaking wardens to give guided talks and answer questions. Feeding time (2pm??) definitely the best time to visit.
