  • Do not hesitate to come to the African reserve, of course you will always find some moaners who will you doubt, to me there is no doubt about it... You will spend a day relaxing with the family, the Park by car several times and do the Park walk. There are even animations, short of the child to the adult you will enjoy and all for thirty euros by the adult...

  • The entrance is quite expensive, but it is worth, not everyday you can see how 4 zebras come to your car and surround you. Or see 7 metres away a bunch of Lions without fences or anything. There are many animals and almost all released. You missed we see elephants, died last and they have not already returned to bring. The food in the very expensive reserve.

  • Very nice place where you can see a lot of animals in an habitat somewhat similar to their own, really fun for the kids. The problem is, it's way too overcrowded; I believe there should be access restrictions (at least in summer and other peak seasons).
  • I'll forever remember the day I spent with my family here as one of the happiest days of my life.
  • The park houses some different African animals. You need some luck for the drive through parts of the park, the animals aren't always very near or even in sight. The walking part of the park is quite nice. Especialy the lake with different kinds of birds is nice. Flamingo's, Pelicans, Stork, ... When in the area it's worth the visit.
  • Wonderful experience to be so close by car, then by walk with animals. All of them are really beautiful, in an approximate field which is successfully enough looking to the natural middle. Signs are clear and rather well explained. The walk trip is not very well shown for some people and can be lightly improved.
  • Great day outing. Lots to see.
