Both amusing and educational - this was a return visit after 7 years, better appreciated by the children

This place is amazing. We spent 4 hours here but could of easily spent longer. The work they do is inspirational, and the animals seem so happy and put UK parks to shame with the amount of space they have. The staff are very friendly and love to chat about these lovely creatures. The only downside was the lousy restaurant. The food was abismal. We ordered frites which were trully awful. The baguettes were equally as bad, and at lunchtime was just the choice of one chicken and 2 cheese and 2 ham. They tasted so awful I wish I had returned them!! It's a shame as the seating and restaurant area was good, just poor food. We paid 19 euros for that, and was shocking! Try and take your own, and eat in the designated areas. I recommend this place to visit though, and don't let that put you off.

I've been here numerous times over the years, always a highlight of my summer holidays to come visit the monkeys/apes/giant catfish/random peacocks.

The zoo is set up extremely well, there are different zones all separate by monkey-proof doors and canals. The monkeys lounge around for the most part and sometimes you have to search to find them, this isn't a normal zoo where the animals are on show for the spectators, this is the animals home and if they want to spend the day hiding up a tree or in the middle of their forest then so be it!

Some of the animals, chimpanzees in particular, are rescues from laboratories and as a result of this they have a tendency to be unpredictable (there are signs warning you they throw stones) and spend most of the time hidden in their forest.

The lemurs, capuchins and other small monkeys walk freely amongst you and don't seem bothered by humans walking around on their territory (though come in the evening and you may be treated to an eery lemur screaming choir) and the smaller squirrel monkeys are known for stealing personal belongings so beware!

Overall a fantastic attraction for any person who likes animals, they provide those translator headphone things at the entrance if you want a running English commentary but I personally have never felt the need to use them as signs are in English and the monkeys speak neither language themselves.

Highly recommend a visit!!!

The monkeys are mainly separated into different areas and there are regular feeding times, during which the staff give a talk about the species and the monkeys gather to eat the veg and nuts. The talk is in French (obvs) so it really helps if you understand. If not, you'll still enjoy watching all the different monkeys.

There's a picnic place, a food outlet and clean toilets. The overpriced gift shop is to be expected.

We had an amazing day
