Opened in August, 2008, the zoo and botanical garden known as La Planete des Crocodiles has fast become a popular tourist attraction. The zoo is particularly known for harboring a wide range of animal and plant species in their natural states. The facility itself is divided into six different habitats that cater to the special needs of the various crocodiles and alligators that call it home. The La Planete des Crocodiles is generally considered to have the greatest collection of crocodile species in the whole country. Take a look at our Civaux vacation route planner to schedule your visit to La Planete des Crocodiles and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Fait en 1h30 préférez quand il y'a pas trop de monde car les allées peuvent vite être engorgées. Très beau décor, on voit les crocodiles de très près.

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.

Comme les avis précédents je trouve que l'endroit est vraiment dépaysant, la végétation est magnifique et très varié.

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.

Pas mal d'animations proposées, mais la visite en soit n'est pas extraordinaire. Nous le conseillons surtout pour les enfants car on peut y apprendre pleins de choses.

And the price is a little high (€12) compared to what is proposed.

Crocs lizards and other animals. The shows were good (although in French).

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.
Dennis ReintsAugust 30, 2017Very 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.
