  • Great time! A proximity with the animals never seen in any other Park! Very close to nature. Awesome. A remake! Deserves to be known! I recommend.

  • This reserve is not a Zoo (this is explained at the entrance), the animals you won't see going there just so there because - that's not the right time, the right season or they don't want to show. These are installed in spaces designed for their well-being than for observation. However you take full eyes still. For my part I saw Wolverine mail everywhere while waiting for his food. We got chased by a Capuchin "escaped". We saw all of the Fossa sleep the one on the other to 20 cm we (behind glass). In short we have no regrets and it does not fall on the same animals as in a classic zoo "coatis/Tiger/Zebra /...", I have nothing against a bit of diversity, this seems to "start" to become important.

  • 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.
