  • A nice visit in this beautiful zoo which houses many species of animals. To do with young children but also older! We return each year in April May because fewer people at this time.!

  • Free parking entry adult € 17 entrance child 3-12 years: € 13 accepts moderately friendly cashier checks-holiday plan your picnic (not inside, only a few benches picnic areas). Otherwise restore fast food inside: quiche, burger, sandwich baguette chips (€2), ice cream, pancakes... Ice Italian simple €2 (but they are tiny) or double €3. Flavors: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, raspberry and lemon. Unlike other zoos visited, we saw only 1 healer. Average indicated visit: 4 hours (but we did 2 h) shows sea lions and parrots (around 11: 00 - 11:30 then 15: 00 - 15: 30) work in progress. Dirty toilets, no toilet paper

  • Very nice zoo, great animals. The performances, especially that of sea lions, are to be seen. Meal prices reasonable (ham/butter 2.50e, packet of crisps 2 medium size), we got to 19th for 4 with drinks

  • Hands on experience for children and adults. A whole day spent there is a day well spent. Reasonably priced, free for disabled people. Lacks places to eat your picnic but that really is the only negative. Old and young enjoyed feeding the Giraffes and petting the Rhinos. What more can I say!
  • Visited a few years back, was possibly the best zoo experience I've had. Touched so many different animals and got close to some amazing creatures.
  • Such a massive zoo with lots of different animals to see. The best bit is feeding the giraffes popcorn when you first go in! A great experience.
  • It's the perfect place for all family! Many different animals and you can even touch them)
  • Best zoo I've ever visited! The only zoo where you can see the captivity is doing them no harm and they are happy in their environment!
