Expensive but good. Some caveats.

Firstly - if you don't like crowds and frustration - pick your time to visit. A weekday out of peak tourist season is workable. Otherwise you will be queueing and perhaps cursing... read more

The only reason why they survive is maybe because they do not have too much competence in 200 km around... It is ver expensive considering what they are ofering...it's a basic zoo,no more than that. Full of cars and with no chance for you to learn if you do not read french...no more lenguages are available in the park!

A really spacious safari park where the animals appeared to be very well looked after. It was a very hot day but we probably saw all the animals they have. Says to allow a minimum of three hours but we didn't hang about and it took us four so for a leisurely trip allow at least five. We were really... More

An inspiring place which does an important job in presenting rare animals in a French style, a must see, to understand much about how France has a deep interest in Africa just as the other great western states do.

At over a 100 euros this was not a cheap day out. Wouldn't have minded if the place didn't look and feel so run down. Food in the restaurant was ridiculously expensive for what it was and tasted awful, with thrown in grumpy staff for good measure. Was quite glad to leave, wouldn’t return.

Took 3 hours and only scratched the surface. Animals generally had plenty space and we were able to view them close at hand both in the car and in other places from viewing areas and paths. Thought it was expensive at€32 but after seeing it thought it was worth every penny.

Lots of animals and space. Not cheap but worth it. First part is you drive through 8 parks seeing various species, then you park and walk around the rest at your own pace. Great day out but get there when it opens as fills up !!

We had a truly fantastic experience here today. We arrived at about 1.30 pm with two very young children (4 and 1) and loved every bit. Driving through the reserve was exciting and we came very close to all the animals. An ostrich walked over and peered in our window much to the children's delight. The pack of lions were... More

If have ever been to any other Safari park, this is very bad. Poorly maintained areas and animals. Rude staff. If you are from England , go to Knowsley park. I can't describe enough the disappointment. Feel rubbed! 110 for 2 children 2 adults.
