“Small but very good zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We went to the zoo de Servion on a sunny afternoon and really enjoyed the trip. The zoo is easliy accessible by bus 65 or 75 from Sallaz which is a Lausanne metro station.
The zoo is small which happens to be a good thing when ou are with children: not too much to walk as it is quite compact.
Despite its size, the zoo has a good variety of animals, with the tigers, lions and wolves as the main attraction. Although the day was hot, most of the animals looked at ease, were lively and easily visible.
A word of caution: most of the feeding is over by 15:30 although the zoo is opened much later.
Well recommended for children of all ages!

“A nice place to spend time with the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

The zoo is a nice place to spend time with the family. It is not a big zoo but there is a good variety of animals ie. Bisons, Siberian tigers, lynx, bear, Artic wolves etc. There are informative signs next to the animal cages/enclosures. The entrance fees of CHF10 per adult and CHF5 per child are very reasonable and parking is free. Combined tickets for both Servion Zoo and the nearby Tropiaquarium is available and are valid for one month from the date of purchase. There is a restaurant and picnic tables in the Zoo. The restaurant serves hot and cold food and also has children menus. Although it is self-service, the staff are very friendly. My children loved the playground. Feeding times (14h00 to 15h30) are clearly stated at the entrance of the Zoo. The Zoo is located in a pretty countryside. It is a nice place to spend a few hours (one can walk around the place at a leisurely pace in about 1.5h) seeing the animals, having a meal in the restaurant or a picnic and play in the playground.

“Lovely attraction in an alpine setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Visited with family - all of us loved it, with the snow adding more atmosphere. Very reasonable entrance fee at 10CHF for adults and 5 CHF for 6-16. There is lots to see - Siberian tigers, Syrian bears, lions, arctic foxes, reindeer, arctic wolves, snow leopards etc with lots of information about conservation and habitat. Lots of playground equipment for the little ones and a decent cafe. I'm told by my brother-in-law that picnics are ideal there in summer. Worth a visit if you have an afternoon.
