Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry, Thoiry

(3.1/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry blends a castle, zoo, and botanical garden. The castle itself was originally designed as a solar calendar, with the garden walkways as the hands. Built according to the golden ratio, the castle's design is in harmony with the solar cycles. Outside, you can explore the gardens, which have been fashioned by famous landscapers for centuries, marking the styles of their respective eras. Beech, oak, hornbeam, and chestnut trees all shade the property. The safari park, which must be visited from inside your vehicle, houses about 800 free-roaming exotic animals. Parts of the zoo and botanical gardens have been made accessible by foot. There’s a Komodo dragon exhibit and a lion exhibit, where you can walk among the felines inside a glass tunnel. The Mysterious Island offers an adventure trail on suspended bridges.

  • We can give endless reasons to not go to the Zoos. Here is another one. Spend money to save them in the Wild where they belong. At least he would have lived free until his death. Shame on you
  • HOW COULD YOU LET POACHERS COME IN AND KILL VINCE...STEP UP YOUR SECURITY
  • Great place to spend a day with family. Especially with kids!
  • Natural beauty....!!!!
  • Safari drive through is great
