  • Very nice, this is the first time we visit such a park. Very clean and staff friendly. Well decorated, it is in the live atmosphere. However a lot of people for the meal of the Christensen we're not stay because too hot in the greenhouse with our 2 year old daughter. She loved being able to see the meal of snakes and pet turtles. Fair price for all that there is to see. To do!

  • Many specimen and this in all categories: turtles, snakes, lizards, crocodiles and alligators. For our money, more animals are alert and lively, which is rare for this type of visit. Now in taking a step back, can it ask if it is not rather a site rather than a zoo, the number of specimen is really impressive. Finally the feeding of the snakes and alligators and very impressive and gore souls sensitive attention.

  • Simple place safe for children. They have turtles, snakes and crocodiles all sizes. Yes: from tiny ones to massive ones ! The gator area is really hot and humid. The shop is nice ... no opened restaurant inside. Just snacks and drinks. Toilets ok.
  • Great place for holiday with family members to see alligators in petite natural place .not great and not bad worth to visit.
  • Great park and not to crowded, the animals have plenty of space besides the snakes and some small reptiles, but I guess they don't need a lot of space. The restaurant is quite alright just don't expect anything fancy.
  • I'm afaid I can't comment on the conditions of the reptiles as an expert but can only tell you what I saw as a lay man. Only on reptile seemed to be in distress but could just has easer ly been doing its thing. (It was runing up and down the glass front of its enclosure) I would also suggest that thay install a gap between the glass the kids can touch and the reptiles, making it more sound profe for the inhabitants. It was just us there the day we went and my kids are well behaved and told to keep the noise dowen and not toch the glass bit if it was bizzy I could see how it would be up seting ly loud. It would also be good if the walls on the alligator walk way where glass in some passes so the kids could see down at the alligators more. Although there are mesh sections on the floor so you can look dowen above the alligators. But I am no expert on there welfare please seek guidence. However the reptiles seemed happy the tortoises too. The alligators where mostly asleep. Now the good stuff The resons I gave it 4 stars is as some where for the kids it's grate!. Thay have easy to understand signs for each creature. My four year old was runing up to them looking at the pitchers and saying "daddy this one eats..." as he could see the pictures under food. There was also a short bit wrighten in English too. Then the rearly fun part. Throughout the site there where tunnels that allowed the kids to pop the head up in to a glass paneled section so it felt like thay where actually in side the enclosure. Another allowed them to be floor level with the alligators staring at the through a slit in the concrete and wire mesh. This sounds unsafe Untill we looked at the other side (in the enclosure) and saw another box sticking out around the slit. Making them a good 2 foot away. Dowen a very narrow slit in the wall. The whole experience seemed to be geard for helping the kids be kids and do more than walk from one windows to the next. There where allso ladders to climb but thay didn't seem to go any where though. All In all if your going to st mount Michelle and you have small kids don't. You will spend a lot of time carrying them up a lot of stares and dowen them. Ull then spend a lot of time lifting them to see over walls and chasing them around endlessly to make shore thay don't fall in, out, off, down, throgh and on to cliffs, stairs, people, glass walls, and tour guide groups. Spit the group take the kids to alligator bay for the whole day and swap with the other grown ups half way through.
  • Good. Worth a trip to if you've got kids. Lots of reptiles and the crocs/alligators are great especially at feeding time! A lot of the reptiles didn't have any information about what they were, where they live etc but all in healthy condition in decent enclosures. Mont Saint Michel is just down the road so its a good day out.
