  • General Zoo is well maintained, our 2-year-old daughter loved it, there's nothing particularly notable, lots of variety of animals and well groomed, a little paragraph, reasonable price. There may be lack of shade on sunny days

  • We went several times to the Bailey and it's always a very appreciated of small and large. The Park is wooded, large, clean and well maintained. The animals are in enclosures adapted to their natural environment. The visit is fun and there is a large playground for children as well as picnic tables for Spades.

  • The best zoo I've seen very large, with a diversity of animals and several proposed animations

  • 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. ...
