    The Park is beautifully maintained. The animals are free and the view (bad weather) must be great. Thanks to the employees of the Park to the ambient mood.

    After reading favorable reviews of the Park big disappointment once... No interest to pay €7 per person to see 2 hens, 1 rabbit... I made much more beautiful free hikes with best views. ... sense of scam... (we were 3 we think exactly the same thing)

    We went to walk to Chamonix. The slope is pretty rough. But frankly the Park is worth it. We could see all the animals and very closely. We were welcomed on arrival. Congratulations on the holding of this park and hat to the managers that respect nature and their animals.

    A so nice place to observe typical mountain animals in their natural environment. Quiet area with an amazing point of view on the top roof of the Europe, the Mont Blanc. A tiny restaurant and souvenirs shop to get all we need for a day trip.

    Great activity near chamonix. Wild animals in the park going very close to the visitors

    The parc is undoubtedly nice but. 1.no family tickets available 2.most of all no drinkable water at any of the fountains. This is quite ridiculous: you have to purchase expensive bottled water at the bar, also increasing plastic consume. And theres plenty of water everywhere!

    Stunning view of the Mont Blanc Lovely natural park with animals wandering around Be prepared for a good 15 minutes walking up the hill to reach the entrance from the car parking site

    If you're disabled, old or with young children then you can park near the entrance; otherwise you have to walk about 1 Km up a steep slope. If you are in a wheelchair or have problems walking, this may not be too good for you as the are many steep gravelly slopes. Bring drinking water or be prepared to buy drinks from the cafe. There is no drinking water available.
