The animals at this ‘zoo’ are extremely unhappy, some of their living conditions are terrible with little to no space. It is very evident that the animals are malnourished and severely dehydrated. We have visited many zoo’s all over the world and have never come...More

As a family with young kids, we go to many zoos, and this has to be one of my favourites. Whilst small, this has it all, for young kids at least. Playful otters and the giraffes were the highlight. And finished off with a wonderfully...More

This is a beautiful place to visit! We visited with kids ranging from 3 to 9 and I'd recommend younger families having a buggy and comfy shoes as the size of the place will result in tired feet for young and old! The cafe is...More

This is quite an expensive day out, but the animals are fantastic, and the hound show & falconry shows are very good. The cafeteria was quite busy and disorganised but served up a cold pint of lager which was a nice surprise!

I think you can get a bus, it will probably go to the town of pleugeneuc which is where the park is. You should contact the tourist office in St.Malo to double check. Or look on line for the info.
