We visited Planete Sauvage mid-July, on one of the hottest days of the summer..oh dear! It was 40 degrees on the car themometer, and a lot of the animals, like lions and cheetahs, were only content to be lying in the shade and not roaming about...who could blame them?!
We paid €90+ for our visit but didn't mind as it was a big thrill for our two kids, ages 3 and 6. Despite the heat, the trip around the park to see the animals was pleasant with no delays whatsoever, contrary to what other reviewers have posted. My only quibble is that we didn't bring a pick-nick, looking forward to buying lunch half way round the park. The facilities there were certainly NOT what I expected of a park with so many visitors every year. There was a small shop selling sandwiches and a tiny chip van (yes, I said chip van!) cooking chips and hotdogs to order, thus creating a queue which took 30+ mins to get to the top of. To be honest, I was incredulous to this, as the place was very busy and the small amount of tables there were occupied, bar one or two exposed to the blistering sunshine. Oh, and then there were those pestering goats which insisted on jumping up on the tables and eating our food...
We finally made our way to the dolphin show, which, as other reviewer have mentioned, takes place in the open, with no shade. Our heat-resistant kids enjoyed it, while I gave up the ghost and retired to a shaded area to cool off a bit. It is no fault of Planete Savage that our trip was not overly memorable - it is well-worth a visit, just bring a packed lunch and goat deterrent and you'll have a lovely day out!
