  • This beautiful reserve on a shaded rock offers the possibility to admire representatives of endangered species which are so well Masan that they are very easy to observe and come even to the visitor! No stress for these residents but a life in pens that are large and well kept! A minimum of fence, beautiful gone with logs, everything is wood! A voluntarily ecological approach to the end (dry toilet)! The staff is passionate and charming! A paradise for photographers also because there is always a "corner" where do I enter the animals! A reserve authentic human-sized! Bravo!

  • In a Woods remained wild you can discover over the small winding paths of rare animals or endangered in pens to stretch the legs unlike some establishments. Members of the staff involved will be not stingy with information about their boyfriends. You will discover among other Lemurs and the Fossa of Madagascar, wolves to Manes and of the South American Tapirs, and Wallabys of Australia and don't miss around 17:30 lunch of the European Mink. children will be delighted to flush out all these animals in the enclosure as many other species are to be discovered.

  • A pretty stroll in the shade of the trees. Very nice especially when it is very hot. Beware the trail is difficult especially with stroller or children who barely walk. Provide rather a baby carrier! We see not all the animals who have the leisure to hide. It does not feel in a park.

  • 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.
