  • Very beautiful zoo must do if you're family in Loire Atlantique. The animals are in good health and their space is very correct. There are areas of day parole where walking with animals, without fence or cage. The visit lasts the whole day what excuse the entry price. I did not put 5 * because of the price of the food in the zoo. So if it provides its own snack-it's a perfect family outing!

  • A zoo near home where trainers seem to be little care for animals! Well maintained Park and space for all well adapted species. We witnessed the feeding of the animals, and this has been very informative. We'll be back for the show of the birds occurring in October. Keep it up.

  • Flabbergasting. Huge space for the 800 wild animals there, and a great birds show.
  • Proposed activities are interesting for the whole family. The zoo says its mission of conservation of species and adheres to many reintroduction program in the natural environment. A small zoo, nice, clean, the animals are looking good.

  • Zoo friendly but expensive to spend little time. It arrives at the opening, ate locally and finished the tour around 1400. Fortunately there is a good playground for a longer time. In addition it as only a show. No seals or polar bears and other animals in the waters, what damage. Next time I just the afternoon.

  • We had found this zoo very well arranged and easy to visit, is not the greatest, but it's worth and the kids enjoyed greatly. The playground nearby to the restore point to make with children a well-deserved stop. Also very good welcome, thank you.
