  • To visit at least once to see some 370 present crocodiles and the beautiful turtles different.

  • Course in the middle of a jungle of junk with real waders and pools of crocodiles, caimans, alligators, turtles... The nursery especially worth a look. The outdoor parties are less interesting unless you have less than 12 years (eg: liane bridge).

  • Do once to the side impressive. Surprising to see some crocodiles so close (when we have the chance), it lacks a little animation... It's great for kids! A corner is dedicated to them. At the beginning of the course, the facilitators (trainers?) are there to answer our questions but only at the beginning, the course we're alone. You can see several species of crocodiles, snakes, iguanas, turtles. It actually makes verrrrry hot inside so plan a t-shirt! The entrance is a little excessive... A look on their site to get a discount according to the periods. The Park is nice and clean! Even the smell of the spray that they put all the way (we dare not even imagine the smell without it) overall, to do it once for the children, it's very friendly.

  • So many crocodiles! Great day out with loads to see and do.
  • Great for all the family. A little expensive as children are 11 euros for 3 yr old . 54 euros for a family of four. Information in multiple languages and assistance available if needed. Food and drinks available but also quite expensive.
  • When I visited Marseille (I'm from Germany), I took the long trip to Pierrelatte just to visit this zoo, and I am so extremely happy about all the things I saw there. The zoo is much larger than I expected and I never expected to see so many crocodiles on a single place. But beside the crocodiles, of my favorites is the Komodo monitor lizard at terrarium #09. The nature/decoration is in the zoo heavenly, and the outdoor area is also very nice. I wish I had seen a crocodile feeding too, but sadly, the times aren't announced at the web. Another disadvantage was that the kitchen was closed when I visited -- probably because it was Monday and there weren't many visitors. By the way, I cannot understand why people are rating this zoo bad. People should be aware that crocodiles do not move very often. That is nature. No animal in any zoo is supposed to "entertain" the visitors.
  • Really nice zoo, with many crocodiles, a lot of nice looking plants and a play yard for the children.
  • Really a lot of those reptiles
