  • Ideal for a family walk and to introduce young children to the main wild animals

  • The Barben Zoo offers good living conditions for animals in General. The enclosures include wooded and natural areas, partly shaded, water points, shelters, and are of a suitable area. However, not all animals are housed in the same sign. -Crocodiles are sometimes crammed up to 4 in a space where they can barely move with a little water so small that they are impossible to hold all at the same time and even less to swim. -The terrariums of some small snakes are also so terribly restricted that they do not even allow them to deploy their entire body. -The baboins and the gibons bear on their faces an infinite sadness. Their respective enclosures are devoid of any vegetation and are of a very limited area for monkeys of this size. It is a real heartbreak and it ruined the pleasure of this day. The Zoo wants to build a new Tiger and Wolf Park. Why not better and prioritise the living conditions of these animals by offering them more extensive and vegetated enclosures? Otherwise, the parks are very clean and the animals look healthy. The Zoo offers picnic areas under the very pleasant trees. The small train and electric scooter rental make the Park fully accessible to people with reduced mobility which is a real plus.

  • My Son (9 Years) and I were thrilled! Both the Zoo's Facility is great, the Enclosures are quite large and permissive (compared to other Zoos), the Animals make a relaxed Impression. There is a large Playground, Drinking Water Stations, only the Food and Drink we found very expensive. The View of Château La Barben is Also magnificent.
