Bioparc de Doue la Fontaine, Doue-la-Fontaine

#1 of 7 in Nature in Pays de la Loire
Out of the 55 species of animals at Bioparc de Doue la Fontaine, more than 43 are listed as threatened species, with nine of those species considered to be critically endangered. Leap into Leopard Canyon for a look at rare leopards housed in an environment that largely mimics bamboo forests and snow of the Himalayas. Visit the only aviary in the world where Andean condors can fly, then visit the South American exhibit with spider monkeys, giant otters, spectacled bears, tamarins, and maned wolves. Head to the Asian continent to spot a Sumatran tiger and the white-handed gibbon primates. Your admission price helps ensure their long-term survival in captivity.

    Beautiful place in nature very well kept. We can admire the animals without stress out them. If there wasn't that one place to visit it would be this one

    Zoo troglodyte, built on several levels. The animals are often visible through several points of view for the pens. The plan is not very clear, and even if you are told that you should always go to the right, you will eventually no longer follow the meaning of the visit. A flat, the full price from 11 years old, an extra cost for families!

    Don't go too early! Most of the shows and feedings are in the afternoon. (08-2017)

    A great day out with the kids! Although I think the entrance fee is a little steep, especially for kids.

    A full 5 hours of family fun. A great array of animals in a stunning location. Having coffee overlooking the giraffes was a real experience! It gets very busy, but there's plenty of space. Highly recommended for all age groups, though a lot of walking involved to get around. Pushchair and wheelchair friendly in most places.

    A great family day out. The park is an easy stroll around and the animals are wonderful. It took us just over 4 hours to go around on a hot day. Free parking is available directly opposite the park entrance.
