    In 1 h 30 prefer when he y' has not too crowded because the aisles may soon be clogged. Very nice setting, we see crocodiles very closely. Ideal for a stopover on a journey but takes not to go there on purpose. Staff efficient and friendly. Bathroom not very clean. Price ticket a little dear (ideal 8-€10 max) reasonable retail price. To do it once.

    Like previous reviews I find that the place is really exotic, vegetation is very varied and beautiful. We expected to see some crocodiles but the number of specimen impressed us. Other animals are present: turtles, piranha... Place to see once, the price is not given but rather nice, clean, good comment during feedings. Small point to improve: quality of sound during the presentations, the history of the crocodiles (how they are raised, where they...) Do not hesitate to make a detour it's nice.

    Quite a few animations available, but the visit is not extraordinary. We recommend it especially for children because we can learn lots of things. And the price is a little high (€12) compared to what is proposed.

    The price is expensive for what took us 2 hours to get round €40 for a family of 4 + 1 toddler. There are other attractions in France that will fill a whole day for this price.

    Very nice outing if you love animals. Everything is nicely decorated and it's nice to see the animals up close. They have seen earlier in the USA, but makes the park no less. Only thing regrettable is that some boards also contain English, but many don't so you have to be there if you have little French.
