Our son liked very much give pellets to goats and llamas. We attended three meetings with healers (elephant, lemur and hippo). The healer which featured pets is a passionate and had a lot to share on them. It has been very rewarding. Could realize including all work performed each day to take care of animals and affection that is brought to them. In response to some criticism that I could read about the elephant, is not only because there is a male in the Paddock behind his. However Madam did not want to accept it, so they live apart... We can only understand. For those who wish to visit this place, do not hesitate to attend meetings healers and ask your questions!View original

A nice surprise for children (and adults!)! It is possible to buy bags of food a 2 euros in order to distribute everything along the way! a great idea! Some animals were eating out of your hands!

Anne Maycock & Chris Copland: We stopped off during a trip without knowing what to expect and we are very pleased to give the Zoo a 5 Star report for the following reasons. On entry the staff were friendly and helpfull. There is a place for refreshments that is really well shaded by ample and pretty trees over the tables. with another refreshment area placed halfway around to provide more refreshments and snacks if required. Following the suggested path on the park map there is a very wide selection of reptiles, birds, and mammals, that was quite astonishing for the size of the park. Including Lions, Hyenas and Tigers (both Bengal and the most beautiful white Tiger I have ever Seen. "Oh and Wolves" Plus Zebras, Elephants and buffalo. Not to mention the flamingoes, emu's, Lamas, Ostriches, Vultures and Meerkats, Plus deer, Goats, and a selection of horned mountain mammals I can't even remember all there names. For the size of the Zoo the layout and selection were fantastic. Every Animal we saw looked very healthy, alert, and interestingly seemed to enjoy the attention of the visitors. Oh and How could I almost forget the monkeys, ducks and Turtles. The park do allow feeding of some of the animals with pellets available at the park. It seems to me that this Zoo is really putting the animals first. Constructive Criticism: I understand that animal welfare must come first...given that point. I would say that there is room for improvement in the overall appearance of the visitors area's and the some additional seating with shade would help to allow visitors to take in and enjoy the animals. More visitors would mean more revenue for the above improvements. Toilets: Though provided these should be prioritised for improvements and Toilets that are modern and impeccably clean and well maintained and provide child and disabled friendly facilities would add greatly to this zoological experience. Note: I really enjoyed this visit and have purposely written things in an upbeat manner because of the huge potential that this Zoo has to become not just great but "exceptional"
Horrible compounds espacially for the large animals. Its hard to feel not sorry for them! This zoo needs to get shut down
Nice "small" zoo that's good for small children
Run down zoo. Hard not to feel sorry for the animals
For the first time since a few years, I today visited this zoo, and it has gone through a real transformation. It is not a huge hypermodern zoo like Tokyo or San Diego, but it is a charming, yet fairly big, countryside zoo. It is one of the few places where you can find Père David's deer, which has been extinct in the wild for more than a century. This species depends on zoos and public parks for its survival, and Fréjus' zoo is one such sanctuary. The park also features a kori bustard, which may be the world's heaviest flying bird, and personally, I had never seen one live before. The animals of course do not have as large areas as in a big safari park, but watching for example the tigers, they looked extraordinarily happy with life, playing and sleeping like kittens in their enclosure. Several people around me joked they would like to join them. Given the choice, the big cats would probably prefer their wild habitat, but as zoos go, there are many worse ones elsewhere. The park's website explains the parks regional role, sometimes treating sick local wild fauna and rereleasing it in the wild. They also in some cases accept animals whose private owners want to abandon them, like the turtle _pond slider_ (Trachemys scripta), which the park receives about 20 of each year. This prevents the turtles from being released in nature as an invasive species. The pond slider is perhaps not the most interesting animal in the world, but if you are a fan, they have dozens, perhaps hundreds, of them in different ponds. Considering the limited area, there are surprisingly good photo opportunities without disturbing grids. Tigers and lions, for example, can be seen through glass windows, and elephants and chimpanzees above fences. However, many other animals are behind narrow grids. Not everything is perfect, of course. The catering is definitely not haute cuisine. In large parts of the park, private cars are allowed to drive around at low speed. The cars are certainly good for the disabled and elderly, but they make the place less peaceful for both animals and visitors. There should be a different solution to help people with mobile limitations. What about silent electric vehicles for the visitors?
