  • Very interesting Zoological reserve. As explained in other reviews, this isn't a traditional zoo, there are animals that we do not see because it is not the right time of the day. Unlike traditional zoos, animals are here at home, we feel that they are well treated. The person at the reception was very friendly.

  • Good evening, we came visited your wonderful structure to last August. We arrived around noon and we went to the total closure of the Park! We saw all the animals except the ground squirrels, but it's not serious at all! We were able to speak with some keepers and direction, we you find friendly, nice, sourriant, passionate, animals are beautiful, the pens are well maintained... is a long list of compliments and complaints is nonexistent! Everything is very well and with a bit of patience, you can see all the even the most timid animals, but for this we must avoid Park in 30 min tour and make noise!

  • Nice little zoo to visit with the kids. Some animals that I'd never before seen in any other zoo. Just make sure to leave you stroller in the car. As this zoo is situated on the side of a hill you'll be working up a sweat if you decide to take it.
  • Not the biggest zoo in the world, but I really enjoyed it. The peculiar hillside arrangement, the unusual variety of animals and especially the walk-in lemur enclosure, made it a great day out. It's quite unusual to see maned wolves, fossas, margays and wolverines too, even in the bigger zoos. Recommended.
  • Nice wooded reserve that allows to discover a little known species in an environment. Attention a little steep place but possibility to visit with a stroller (with big wheels).

  • Beautiful reserve, predict water bottle and sports shoes to be comfortable! Amazing animals and surprising closeness. If you have children, make sure they are wise to respect for this place! Congratulations to the team for the support of all these animals in the process of disappearance.
