    Here, you dont have the impression that the animals are suffering. Enclosures are large. It is quiet a walk for visitors. You can also see animals, which are rarely in the zoos, such as hippos, anteat...  more »

    A beautifully landscaped park, you walk between different pens. Beautiful views of the surrounding landscapes. The panels are very well made for children. Of many shady areas with picnic and children's play tables. We love and our children too!

    surprise 1st very affordable for a family day. It changes some parks. The space is large, a small train to avoid to walk to a very decent rate. Animals certainly sometimes have more small spaces as in some parks but have the air healthy. D elsewhere a few births with babies Cubs... And animals that have already a good age as the two bears. A lot of trees of picnic tables with benches, fountains to water. A nice family day, the girls enjoyed there off season to try to see a little more some animals who were hiding with the heat, including red pandas.

    Lovely zoo with many animals. Some areas under development. Lots of water taps to get mains water from. When we went the Tigers indicated on the map had been removed and replaced by Nile Crocodile.

    Not the most beautiful zoo, some animals have a really small cage. But they're working on it! They also support some animal-protection-programmes... We really loved the birdshow. The setting where the zoo is build is midblowing. We love the Provence

    This is a great zoo, really enjoyed it here. The food isn't great, I would recommend taking a picnic.
