  • Very friendly, clean... The kids loved the little red panda who became the star of the zoo

  • Great day! The Park is very nice, the animals are quite easily visible from the fact of the provision of the enclosure. Many species and very clean Park. The snack bar is a plus when there no provision for a snack or meal. The "stroller" is top. In short I recommend this destination around me.

  • It's a nice zoo, a nice variety of species and very well laid out and maintained pens. It's a nice place, many signs and very good communication: it is well explained, when need be, the specificity of this animal in the pen. You will meet on your course a large playground and a snack. Little train paying for those wishing to shorten time to market.

  • Charming Zoo perched on a small bluff overlooking provence. A bit strange to find a high quality Zoo at such an off piste location, but it is well worth the trip.
  • Nice place to visit with children
  • Expensive for Winter (many animals are not visible)
  • Like 95% of the zoos it is no exception to the rule: disappointing. Nevermind the distressing words of people to animals and showing their evolution of bipeds nickname in this wonder pets "are not just sleeping" and "c..." and see: 1 - the space allocated to such species has no consistency vs its periphery of travel! (a leopard evolving in say 300 m 2, while a 20 times bigger elephant is changing in almost the same space! and this is just one example). 2 - Wall of protection of 1 m 30 for some animals which prohibits children to see them except to be carried or then hoisted on the wall except that... it is forbidden to reinforcement of large panels! 3 - An invisible Tiger except when he's under sheltered enclosure and in this case a glass to see but the glass problem is simply black grime! The windows in this zoo must be made at best all history to mark the new year on January 1. 4 - a miserable chimpanzee that asleep - so much the better for him - but and others? well there's not it is all alone! Well well so much for his gregarious instincts to promote and which is essential in these animals. That is not the way after saying that we respect the natural conditions of the animals. In short you love animals don't go to Bailey. From elsewhere if you like animals don't go in any zoo and prefer the nature documentaries, you will have chances to see them happy and without stupid comments from onlookers on Sunday.

  • Very nice zoo! The spaces for animals are large enough and well laid. A large play park for children with very nice mist during the heat. A good time! 4/5 because I think pretty petty to pay 1 euro for upstairs with the little train and 1 other euro down... this service could in my opinion very included in the ticket price. ...
