  • the place is well designed because in nature and sometimes direct contact with animals, too bad that some animals have no more place.sinon have some market especially with children below age.

  • Fun and very interesting Zoological reserve (children 5-10 years). the approach with the animals is very natural and respectful of their biological rhythm. We don't throw food to the animals the person at the reception was very friendly and the trainers are very accessible Park is very beautiful. Two hours of ballad.

  • A nice site with animals than it is not every day! Here we love and respect nature. Take your time and be discreet because some animals are shy...

  • 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.
