Really you should spend a full day there. Don’t miss the train, it’s an hour of pure nature with black bears, elks, prairie dogs, local history and more (in French - our guide was very competent and funny) The animals look great and happy.

All the animals seem to be well looked after and content (even the camels and tigers!!). The zoo is well laid out and easy to find your way around. The self-service restaurant in the centre is rather impersonal but fine as a "watering hole".

Thank you for your visit. The wellbeing of the animals is so important for us. We’re working on new habitats (for example for the polar bears). And a new restaurant for next year!
