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.

Make sure your car AirCon works otherwise you will be faire le sweating on a warm day with your windows closed. This place is pricey. You pay at... More

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.

You can start through the path by car: you need to keep the windows closed and avoid to stop. We didn't see many animals, and quite far, except for the (very static) lion. Still, you get that sort of safari taste. Much better after parking: monkeys jumping up and down palm trees in their own small island, a group of... More
