  • Very nice place. Completely immersed in a wood and with an interesting variety of animals. The paths are intricate and points to eat are many and well spread. Suggested with good weather. Only cons: no English writings/explanations anywhere, the parking is expensive and not mentioned in the website and no paper maps available (only some panel in the restaurants areas).
  • A very fun zoo especially for kids. Lots of tunnels, walks into the enclosure for a close encounter with the animals, the walks often ends with a fun slide. Can feel a bit crowded on weekends because of all the buggies being pushed around and kids running everywhere. Be aware they do not have lockers so you'll have to carry whatever you bring with you! You can easily spend 4+hours here if you plan on following the recommended route(not the most efficient) to see everything.
