“Best zoo EVER!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The following is written by my 11 year old daughter, inspired by this zoo to write her first ever review! It was different to any zoo that we've ever been to, lots of trees and shrubs. I really did enjoy this day out in the zoo! It was amazing the only thing I was ashamed of was the giraffe didn't have much space to run around but it was still the best zoo ever! Well worth the try. The best thing in the zoo was the sea lions their show was blooming AMAZING!!!! I would really go there again! It really entertained my little cousin through out the day. I really wanted to stay in the lodges to watch the animals when I passed one of the lodges near the lemurs, I was like OMG! If your staying in La fleche you must go to the BEST ZOO EVER!!!

“Avoid”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

In my opinion this is the worst sort of zoo imaginable.
The animals seemed unhappy and the enclosures seemed to be too small. In particular the giraffes were in an sandy enclosure with no stimulus at all, the elephants' enclosure had a lot of fenced off parts and the wallabys appeared to have little room to run around in.
The zoo claims that it has tried to recreate natural habitat but I have never seen otters and dolphins in what looked looked like tiled swimming pools and the polar bear enclosure had a pebble path in it.
To add to the "atmosphere" piped music was played at various parts.
If you want to go to a good zoo - try the zoo at Doué-la-Fontaine!

Check out the private lodges truly amazing, here you can sleep beside the animals OMG !! Great value for a private lodge where you sleep inside the Zoo. Cheaper than Euro Disney

“Amazing Animal Habitats”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Great variety of animals in natural-like habitats. The visitor walking areas even felt like you were in the jungle. This zoo is large and clean with lots of eating venues and bathrooms facilities. I especially enjoyed the white tigers, white lions, and white wolves. I was able to get up-close photos of many animals. Ticket price was reasonable for the quality of this zoo.

“Best Zoo we have ever been to.”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Great day out... amazing array of animals, you almost need 2 days to see them all and give them all the attention they deserve. I know people have reported about the wobbly paving, BUT REALLY?.... It is set in a wooded area, it makes it all the more real and rustic.. It is all BEAUTIFULLY laid out and looked after. 10/10. All the animals had lovely enclosures.. (maybe the giraffes not so good) ... For a zoo... absolutely brilliant... (you are NOT on safari in Africa!!)..... I fully recommend for a day out, with or without children.
