We have visited the premises last year, a part of our visit to Montpellier. It is one of the attractions listed for that area and we thought it would be a good fun for our little daughter. The zoo is such a big one and requires a lot of walking, which is exhausting. After a while you just get frustrated because of the walking and not a single bench to rest. Despite the walk, when we arrived at the view points, we were not able to see most of the animals for an unknown reason. There were no staff to answer our questions, and the whole thing was not welcoming at all. At the end of our visit, we were exhausted, covered with dust and just annoyed. It is a waste of time, you can easily find better things to do in the area.

“lovely walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We walked the 3 miles here and 3 miles back from the city centre and the zoo itself is quite large so another few miles there. The zoo is free of charge and the animals have large spaces so sometimes hard to spot them. This was fine with us as the quality of living is obviously better than in some zoos. We paid extra for the amazon exhibition and glad we did. Great place with birds walking around yours feet! Would recommend if you have extra time left once you have explored the city centre

“A lovely walk but not a normal zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I love this place as a place for a family stroll, but if you're expecting a proper zoo then this isn't the place for you. It's more like a large park with animals dotted around that you happen to come across. It's great for children and for running. Plus it's free!

“Free and nice for walking and running”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

If you're looking for a place to run, that's the best place for that. It's free to enter and got really good place for a run in the dirt.

“Almost too much to see!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Be warned - this place is extremely big. You will need a couple of visits to get around it all. Our two little boys (4 and nearly 2) found it hard-going but enjoyed themselves. I would also not rely on the zoo for lunch as the café doesn't look too inviting.

That the zoo is a free attraction obviously brings in the crowds. Well done to the city of Montpellier for funding it!
