“Lots of flamingos and herons just in front of you”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Really worth! The flamingos are so near you, and so many! In the trees you can see herons nests, and witness the birds feeding their small ones. There are easy circle paths of different lengths, and at each step you can make a discover. Few observatories have also been carefully setup, allowing you to just sit down and just watch unseen.
You can really spend the day there, but also a couple of hours are good enough for getting the most of it. Magic.

Just remember to bring mosquito repellent. Excellent photo opportunities. Small cafe onsite. Walk around watching flamingos and other birds.

“Birds,bugs and bayou.”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

The flamingos are amazing and the park is in its natural state. A memorable experience. The array of birds was significant and the flora and fauna just beautiful. Be ready to fight off mosquitos.

“Great way to visit the Camargue and its wonders”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

I have been many times in Camargue, it is a really beautiful place but somehow a bit tricky to visit. Paths through the wetlands are rare. So the Pont de Gau is a great and easy way to experience the natural beauty of the Camargue. We were there in December and it was wonderful! The birds are there on their free will, this is a place where they are safe and protected. The scenery is magic, you get a mixture of the color of the sky, flamingos and reeds reflecting on the water. Don't let yourself taken by all the pink birds, you'll also see heron, swans, birds of prey... I was suprised to see how touristic this was is. I hope people are aware that this is not an animal park but a place where birds are safe, please be it also safe from the tourists. I suggest you have a horse ridding tour though the swamps and the etangs and in addition you can visit the Parc du Pont de Gau.
