  • We had a good time in this zoo, plus the weather was to go for October. I was pleasantly surprised by the good number of babies in different species, which is certainly evidence of well-being. Only negative is the size of some pens, but not for all animals. However this zoo is very well maintained.

  • That day, it was not too hot, there was no noise, it was the end of the holiday and it would be almost felt alone in this beautiful place. It is never nice to see animals locked up, but in general the gaze extends to splendid views. We would have almost forgotten the pen, still a bit too small for some. After an interesting presentation on the lives of the wolves by a very friendly enthusiast who spoke a little too hard for the handful of people, we came home, the spirit still lulled by the dance of giraffes.

  • 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.
  • Expensive for Winter (many animals are not visible)
  • Nice place to visit with children
  • Wide range of animals. Superb promenade, shadow everywhere, full of game for child and very playful. Attractive prices. However there is quite a negative point. There is much difference between animals, said classic type goat which are not treat in the same way as a red panda for example. All animals are equal and some oblivion. The enclosures are can be a little limited in size. The food was a desire in some enclosures. Mould on tomatoes! (minimum 3 days). Non-existent park staff, but it leaves us an emergency number! And for the lions, some parent fun to do spend their child across the barrier for photos because the gene toasting! Flights of birds announce 40 min, 25 min at most. A single toilet, therefore predict when they are at the end of the 10-15 min walk Park. That being said this Park remains very vary, peacocks walk free. Picnic possible throughout the Park. Sufficient water point. The reptiles and crocodiles are a must-see. To conclude, despite some thinking negative I would return.
