You can't visit Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region without spending at least half a day at this Zoo! Start with the train where you are in cage-wagons. You're in and animals are free ranging outside! Wow! The one hour tour will give you plenty of chance to watch bears, elk, deer, moose, caribou, wolves, prairie dogs and many more. Moreover, you will pass thru a typical Québec settler's farm and a logging camp.

After this first experience, let's visit on foot the very large and modern enclosures that are dispersed in the gigantic area. So big that you will have to cross two rivers on you way.

Do not expect lions, giraffe or hippo! This is for Northern beast! That's why you will see the four Siberian Tiger, Polar bears (I had the chance to feed them!)and other North Asia animals.

The two kids we travelled with ( 7 and 3 year old) also greatly enjoyed the farm area!

Overall, a great day that well worth the expense!

This was our first visit in 20 years and I must say i was impressed by the zoo. It is vastly spacious and animals can be seen from various spots as they are not kept in cage. Even if the parking is full, it doesn't seem overcrowded. The hour-long train ride is a must, you can see many species in real nature. We saw 4 black bears and 2 grizzlys during the ride. There is farm where kids can play with small animals (goats, chickens, donkeys...).

Be prepare to walk a bit. The zoo is large and there are many slopes. The site is very well adapted for baby strollers.

Plan at least half a day to visit the whole attractions. We were there 4 hours and we didn't waste time.

So spacious! At times it was more like being in a national park than in the zoo. My son and I spent 6 1/2 hours here and we loved every minute of it. A great place to bring kids. Highlights included the hour-long train ride (learning the words for 'right' and 'left' before embarking would be helpful for all you unilingual English speakers), which was like a North American safari; the labyrinth maze in the barn with the suspension bridges overlooking the petting zoo that my son insisted on doing three times, and the Asian section with its many overpasses and our favourite animals: the tigers and the macaques.

This ZOO is well planned out for the ease of walking to see wild animals plus the train excursions through the ZOO is a must. Bring your camera all kinds of wild animals.
