  • The Parc Safari were pleasantly surprised to us and that it felt like a visit to Africa. Make sure to bring fresh fruits and veggies to feed the animals as the boxed dry foods aren't their fav. You wi...  read more »
  • They even returned a month after. Beautiful park, animals are really beautiful to see. This time for dinner, we ate in the restaurant Explorer l. It was sublime. The Café also offers a nice little menu and a good latte. The Park was super clean despite the number of visitors to the two visits and we even noticed the maintenance staff.

  • Going around the park in our car, feed and petting the animals while listening to a guide on the radio explaining the animals the site and the park was very cool. Then part of the park is accessible b...  read more »
  • What an experience! It really is a drive-thru zoo. We bought a packet of food, and an ostrich stuck it's head in the front window to get to the food in the back. They warn you that the zebras bite (so don't feed them), and you'd need a very patient driver. All in all, a very memorable experience. I wish we had been able to spend more time walking around!
  • Who knew you could visit a real Safari one hour from Montreal! We had a truly unforgettable experience here during our recent visit. The walking parts are great with glass tunnels for the Lion and Tiger habitats that allow you to get up so close! As for the driving portion we ended up going through twice and had a absolute blast. The animals were very tame and gental, we enjoyed feeding them right for our hands and most stuck their heads in the car! This park is huge and has plenty of picnic areas, I would highly recommend packing a cooler with your lunch. I would go back to visit this place in a heartbeat.
  • Had a really great time with my 22 month old. The traffic to get in was long even though we showed up before it actually opened. I Don't know why they won't just open earlier . The drive threw safari was great and entertaining but make sure you bring lots of carrots since that's what they all want. The water park was really and had a blast ! We spent 4 hours just playing in the water. Recomandations: Bring your own lunches and drinks since they have lots of pick nick tables. Comfortable shoes . stroller unless you want to rent from there. Bring carrots. Have fun !
  • The animals are in such small spaces and seem miserable and psychologically damaged. Some have paced so much that they've made trenches in their enclosures. The elephant we saw seemed to be rebelling and was throwing rocks and hitting it's shelter. There was also a limping zebra that had a bleeding wound in an enclosure near their African platform. So anything to do with the animals was just depressing. The water park looked pretty boring and gross as well, we decided to not even go in. The bathrooms were pretty gross too, I understand that there are many people in and out of them but that should mean they get a little extra attention. The rides all seemed to be shut down except for the slide. The drive through safari was long but at least those animals seemed less miserable, and it was exciting for the kids to have them approach the car. Overall very dissapointing especially having to pay approximately 150$ for 2 adults and 3 kids (5, 3, 1 years of age).
  • Beautiful large safari-style zoo. Wonderful drive-thru portion where you get to be up close and personal with the animals. Zookeepers circulate to make sure the animals stay off the road so you don't get stuck. Once you're through the driving portion, explore the rest of the what the zoo has to offer. They have a great little water park for young and old and a fun lazy river that ends in a slide. What stood out for me was that the animals don't look miserable as they do at other zoos, and that makes a huge difference in the overall experience.
