  • The nature reserve is divided into 2 parts: we made the rounds of the first in about 20 minutes to observe only the Flemish roses that unfortunately are very few roses. No variety of birds. For the lucky ones you'll see otters. Regarding the 2nd part of the Park, the made round 4.8 km and in this part there seems to be many more species of birds. The interest in this part is to take the time to observe wildlife in "shelters" with binoculars (commendable at the entrance for € 9 but arrived at 5:30 it was too late because he must make them at 7 pm) we came late in the day to attend the feeding of Flemish roses at 6.30 pm and big disappointment not feeding... Anyway mitigated because Nice ballad still but big lack of varieties of birds.

  • To see the Flemish roses closely and other birds... The ride is bucolic and charming. Very affordable price. And the plan is well explained... To do if you're in the area.
