  • A staple of the corner. Damage off-season work made it impossible to see everything. However we had a very good day. Wire train is a great idea. We have seen plenty of big Teddy bear among other things. The landscape is also very beautiful.

  • This Zoo is giant. There is a whole that is done in a small train and for once it is the man who is in a cage. The diversity of animals is interesting. they have a very large space. And the little home movie is great. A great time

  • The comments were all very good and I confirm: it's a very nice experience. We had seen that part of the zoo was closed for work and as such, the Park offered a tariff reduction on entry ticket which is very correct on their part. For the rest, which is great in this park that is the impression of being immersed in nature with plenty of space for animals. The icing on the cake is, of course, the little train that immerses us in the middle of the animals. The framework is just amazing and the animals can fierce it allows to meet a large part of the native wildlife that we would certainly never seen without it. Everything is very well designed with historical reconstruction of the villages and houses of the time. And it's very smart to join everything together and many zoos should be inspired to complete the educational dimension. Brief all good on the line and we do not regret the many km do to come.

  • Beautiful zoo featuring regional animals who live free in very large enclosure; tourists tour in fortified train and are taught about Quebec's history of settlers and explorers, their trials and triumphs and downfalls; their relationship to the land and animals. Beautifully done, including the educative and experiential videos offered.
  • A zoo I always enjoyed since I'm a child. I go there at least 5 times a year. They take great care of every animals.
  • A trip to Lake St Jean is just beautiful. A must do once there is to visit Le Zoo Sauvage of St Felicien. Animals have plenty of room to roam and are well taken care of. The must do, though, is the trip on the little train. It goes through the countryside, explaining, and demonstrating, the history of the early French settlers, how they established their homesteads, learned to work together and with the animals, and slowly built the country. The train is "fenced in" and the animals, such as bears, buffalos, and other indigenous animals roam free. Great experience for all wildlife and nature lovers of all ages.
  • Great wild zoo! You will find yourself walking on elevated wallways and observe the wild below. There is a 60min ride train you can take to observe the wild from the ground (we saw 20 black bears in 15min! Was great) Edit: Anima Lumina, desapointed, not a lot of special effect. 2 stars on 5.
  • Fun place for the whole family,could be less expensive tho!
