  • Is it a zoo with a hotel attached, or a hotel with a zoo on site? Only kidding, because this is one of the very best zoos in France, and a leader in conservation and education, BUT there are some beau...  more »

  • My family and I were quite disappointed with our visit today. We feel that we paid much more than the experience was worth. First, over 1/3 of the zoo was closed for construction. Workers, power tools cutting and making noise, and animals relocated, we missed out on seeing many animals and were annoyed by distractions. Second, despite being a Friday in June, only one restaurant (the most expensive) was open to the public. All the many others were closed. We, like many others, were stuck and paid for a VERY expensive lunch, which wasn't even very tasty or nutritious. Overall, we feel deceived and a bit ripped off. It was our son's first zoo visit, and we feel a bit bitter for having paid so much for so little.
  • Cons: -smoking is allowed, even under the shows -more food stalls would be nice as they tend to get rather crowded Pros: -Very nice park, with a lot of shadowed places for both animals and visitors -Animals are treated with a lot of respect and care, which results in very healthy and playful animals. Would recommend to be in the area at least 2 days, as ALL the shows & animals are worth to see.
  • Excellent place to be with friends and family
  • Much larger than it first looks with some great animals and high quality food.
  • Lots of nice animals with helpful staff
