    Promised thing due, we took the kids to the zoo of the arrow that they used to see on TV. We had a great day and they come out thrilled! The zoo is not too big. Thus when some animals are not visible is not serious, one can visit him later. The shows are top and trainers are very accessible. They take the time to say something and take pictures after the shows. We have seen Berenice working with sea lions between Barbara and shows with a small OWL she also between two shows. Every time the ignition is simple and easy. The entrances to the Park are not too expensive for this type of place and that is very neat. Feel free to make your children happy!

    the zoo has a lot a pet reptile space is run down; on the other hand the place to picnic or rest are great and many as the restore point. Kids love find the "star" of a season at the zoo; and healers are very nice and welcoming.

    Nice Park, but spending on television, there are too many people. The zoo did not anticipate is phenomenon. 2 people with handicaps, nothing is done to place them at the shows, people place themselves, and with chairs, if you do not have 1 hour in advance you can't place you. Viewers put themselves in the aisles is that to start you can not move with the fauteuils.l' coaching needs to be reviewed from A to Z.Parfois it is not so easy to see the animals, because really too crowded. I recommend the season summer.

    Awesome zoo. One of the best I have visited in Europe. The live shows are wonderfully put together. The enclosures are beautifully put together, quite unique compared to what I've seen anywhere else.

    Great zoo with good displays. Get close to the animals, especially the lemurs, which are loose in one area and may even sit on you. Just don't expect to be able to eat at lunchtime because the queues are huge (over 1 hour) and there are not enough staff to cope.

    Really great zoo it covers a large area so lots of walking, good selection of food at the restaurant and kiosks and the shows were great, loved the polar bears.

    While I'm not sure about animals being kept in captivity, if you are going to do it, this appears a model for other zoos. Impressive enclosures, fantastic paths and walkways and good educational talks.
