  • The zoo of La Palmyre is known for its chimpanzees and his Goons, go there you will not be disappointed. Otherwise overall we find all the animals we hope to see, of course they are locked and that makes us a little sad but it probably saves their brothers, we can maybe believe it. It is true that in September and by large sun is nice to circulate in the aisles or we can take his time (4 hours) to watch. Price us seemed high, may be the price to pay to see so many animals.

  • Very nice zoo trees with lots of animals of all origins but the spaces for the felines are too narrow. The cats running around in tiny pens wolves also have the air stressed. The area great apes superb is a pretty walk quietly

  • We passed in June 2017, the zoo is very well maintained and it is ' has very many animals, there is no map of the zoo distributed home what would have been a little more. The zoo offers only a few shows throughout the day but they are rather mediocre. Count a little more for a morning or an afternoon if you plan to see everything without running. To do if you're in the area.
