  • No! No, no! The animals are unhappy, tristent, are unhealthy and they get bored. Hygiene of the enclosure is deplorable. I want to cry on the way. Never I wouldn't go back, it's really disappointing and disgusting such conditions. The pens are invaded cats and trash thrown by people.

  • the place is huge but abandoned. Elephants made me hard to see, they were thirsty and hungry. Barely a few metres further, we decided to turn around because a man was following us from afar and we felt insecure.

  • The place is beautiful but not all maintained, not lots of visitors, a few booths or buy some ice cream and sandwiches (not all open-no opening hours displayed either...) There are a lot of animals; African village side: full of llamas and ostriches and gazelles, horses and birds... Wild animal side, nice surprise! 5elephants, a pair of lions including the female looks like breastfeeding (we have not find someone who can confirm if it was small... damage) two hippos, wolves, jackals, pigs and boars, a rapacious camels... etc *. * Attention they do go wild animals in their pens at 16 pm (even in summer. :() In short the animals are good la, about their State of health... I would say it is not necessary to be an expert to say that they are hungry and they are used to being fed by visitors... :( The entrance is a 50da by people, it is a mini train that connects the two parcs(village africain et animaux sauvages mais deles de personnes arrivent a rentrer en voiture) If you had children, he playgrounds are side anima wild and picnic tables (very friendly (a) some employees have informed me that the zoo will close soon for an amusement park and the animals will be moved elsewhere... :(
