We came to the zoo not expecting much from reading some of the reviews on here. However we had a great time. Yes it isn’t that big and 2hrs is all you probably need here, but the animals they have on display are fantastic. The...More

The Zoo previously on this site was built in the early twentieth century and by the turn of the Millenium had become a depressing sight. This was not the way into the twenty-frist century. So, all credit to the French authorities, the Zoo was closed...More

The animals seemed in good health and they were nearly all out and visible for us to see. But compared to more modern zoo they have less free space to roam about, their enclosures seemed a lot smaller than other zoos I've visited. The zoo...More

I have to fess up, I'm slightly bias, I love going to the zoo! Whilst it's not the best zoo in the world, and some of the enclosures are a bit small, it's still a fairly excellent day out. The animals were active, for adult...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

Hello Alexandra, Well unfortunately there are no panda there and we are not allowed to touch the animals. But there are a huge variety of animals. The zoo is very nice.
