  • The first thing to know before you go to the Cerza Zoological Park, it's you need a long walk if you want to enjoy your visit... and that's good. This means that the animals have very large areas. The setting is beautiful, green and hilly. Two circuits are offered: Red (1 h / 1 h/30) and yellow (1 h 30 / 2 h). Visit with a 7 year old. A tour by train about 30 minutes. (4 departures a day). A 12 minutes (2 sessions) 3D movie. 3 "safaris": of all lemurs, giraffes and small. Two restaurants and a snack. Areas of Spades fucking next to the car parks. At the animal level there is much to see. The property be "locals" is the priority of the zoo. A beautiful Zoological Park.

  • Instead of Beauval the watchword here is space. Spacious enclosures for animals. Obviously at this time of year a lot of mud and moisture but it is normal. Most of this park is the staff (reception, lodge, restaurants, healers). A meeting with a passionate young woman clemency who can communicate his passion to visitors (giraffes taste, taste of lemurs). We also chose a meeting with wolves. An exciting hour with rich, alive and relevant comments. Our son was thrilled. We realize however that the animal is at the centre of the concerns of this park and that is what we are looking for. Bravo and thank you for these 2 days.

  • Incredible place, filled with all sorts of exotic animals that are clearly well kept and loved. Many sections have an interactive element where you can either see the staff interact with the animals, or, for the less dangerous varieties, interact with them yourself (the ring tailed lemurs are great). Junk/quick food is expensive there, as is expected of places like this so it is good to either take a picnic hamper or enjoy the very nice restaurants.
  • A large, well kept and pleasant zoo. Entry price is a little high and food prices from the various eateries are very high, so I would suggest taking a picnic. There is a significant amount of walking involved in seeing everything - the notional time is 2:30 (read about 4 hours with young children)
  • Lot of animals with lot of space. Everything is neat, proper and properly organized.
  • We loved it, a good walk on a nice day and look at animals at the same time! Cheap to rent a stroller that can get over the toughest terrain (not that you need that, our Quinny Yezz could go anywhere at the park). The food at the restaurants are good and the train ride is nice when little feet are tired. Awsome experience for us who have never seen safari animals.
  • Wonderful, magical, awesome. Having already visit the zoo two years ago, we have marveled at the new features of the Park. The taste of giraffes is exceptional, a moment unforgettable. The route of the train seemed to us changed in the face of our memories and we can now see many more animals. The pens are all very well designed, great animals. Everything is designed for a great family day. Point one negative, the price of ice, sandwiches, etc... who could be offered a little cheaper.
