  • Really, this zoo, even if there are a lot of species, not worth s stop there. The enclosures are small, animals seek shade and everything is dry. View windows are not at the level of the children, so long live the arms of parents. The drinks are at exorbitant prices. One desire, go. We're years beauval zoo lights. The elephant is pitiful to see. It's been sick at heart while I'm away to be a defendant of the animal cause. Keep your money for good ice cream on the terrace.

  • The exteriors are not terrible, the home either. The pens are tiny and dirty. Zebras are in a field or their feces shouldn't be often removed, the hippo is a tiny and disgusting basin. We feel that the animals know that tourists buy packets of seeds to feed them. The animals look sad and the elephant is rickety. Disappointed

  • Passing through the area, we decided to spend some time in this park. I had not read the notice before leaving, but I regret it. Indeed there are some positives: large parking lot, several areas with benches, a large space for a picnic, a number of species of animals big enough. But that's all, the list of positives is long enough in my opinion: extremely small enclosure, difficulty to see some animals because little accessible Park, the snack bar prices impressive (€2,5 small crystalline water bottle), but the most important is the State of the enclosure, they are very equipped and poorly developed, some shade for animals and they frankly do not represent the environment of origin of the animals. We stayed a while in front of the elephant and the latter made us sentencing, he stood in the same place with a simple movement of the pendulum. In short I do not say that the staff does not animals (because they saw that the animals we look healthy), but there is a severe lack of money I think to be able to bring the zoo to the standards to which we are accustomed today. In short I recommend anyone to go visit this place, but at least you realize better the urgency to take more into account the good be animals into account, our children were surprised but suddenly he realizes a little better that one must do our utmost to improve the conditions of captivity of animals

  • Opening days and hours are wrong on their website and their Facebook page. And they don't even answer the phone to give informations.
  • Nice little zoo, ideal for children. Animals are well kept
  • 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
  • Really good park small but nice
