J'avais lu beaucoup d'avis négatifs mais eu envie de me faire ma propre opinion. Et bien, nous avons passé une très bonne journée! Merci aux soigneurs pour leurs animations, leur explications et leur ... read more »I had read a lot of negative reviews, but wanted to get my own opinion. And well, we had a very good day! Thanks to trainers for their entertainment, their explanations and good mood. The children were delighted. Of course, we see the Park suffered a drop in attendance but the staff takes care of the animals in the Park. My only downside would be the maintenance of the Toilets for people who are sensitive to this and the fact that there is no corner to change your baby. The picnic area is ideal, we arrived at 11: 00, lunch at noon and left at 16:30. An animation with white Tigers has been added while she was not initially anticipated. That is, a nice day, we were 3 adults and two children of 8 and 2 and a half years!show original
Nous y sommes allés pour l'anniversaire de notre fils de 3 ans. Quelle déception et quelle horreur. Les animaux sont gardés dans des conditions lamentables, les enclos sont trop petits et inadaptés. M... read more »We went for our 3 year old son's birthday. What a disappointment and horror. The animals are kept in deplorable conditions, the pens are too small and unsuitable. Even our 3 year old son understood it was creepy and tried to leave at the end of half an hour while he loved the Park of tête d'Or in Lyon. For the asking price, the minimum would be that animals receive the necessary care and quality paddock. Not a fan of zoos originally, it is a horror and more like die than anything else. Stay away and report to animal protection agencies...show original
Dé-pri-mant !! Les animaux sont dans des espaces souvent minimum : certains fauves dans quelques m² sans arbres ...

It is concreted and arid, passable by car by dangerous place for small children! After an hour, our son who we came wanted to "get back in the car"! The price is outrageously expensive for what we see: €43.50 2 parents, 1 child. Everything is business: the snacks a scam, the "boutique" a scandal: all items are ugly and poor quality, not a book! They sell food for animals that people give indifferently to all the animals... Hospitality is simply does not exist: you pay in a hut before asking his car then not an interlocutor in the Park! Luckily we made nice pictures and our little boy likes watching them and we managed to turn this into good memories...show original
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?
Nice "small" zoo that's good for small children
Run down zoo. Hard not to feel sorry for the animals
Fermez cet endroit immonde
RaphI am silenced rumors and taken other positions without argument. The zoo is very well maintained, no less than any. Health care aid is particularly attentive, extremely competent, and considers the visitors, she offers even, with great caution, for visitors to feed the harmless animals. I stayed there for a while, working in the snack bar, and never, ever I have seen not even an ounce of abuse. Visitors see what they want to see after seeing the venomous reviews here. Yes, the water of the hippopotamus is green. What a disaster! But wait... such an animal lives in a swamp, where the water is also green, and it suits him. Thank you for considering this zoo as a real space to care for animals. Thanks again to the careful with a great kindness.show original
