Nous avons passé 4 heures à visiter le zoo qui est magnifique. Même nos adolescents étaient ravis, c’est vivant, ça bouge, il y a tellement d’espaces différents et la variété des animaux est bluffante... more »We spent 4 hours visiting the zoo which is beautiful. Even our teenagers were thrilled, it's alive, it's moving, there are so many different spaces and the variety of animals is stunning. We loved the zoo. Go ahead!! The only negative is the snack part which is very expensive and where choice and quality are non-existent. We wanted pastas box but there were no more. We fell back on burgers without fries please !!!! They don't make it it was add a packet of chips to 2 euros! Tiny overpriced and frozen burger, microwaved for 2 minutes and thrown into a cardboard plate with plastic packaging... Amazing. No choice of menus and drinks in addition. There were a lot of people who were picnicking, we understood why. It's a shame that the zoo doesn't make any effort to improve this service because it really denotes with the delivery of the animals. On the way out we asked for some info about the polar bear that is no longer there, we came across a very kind lady who talked well with us and explained everything to us, thank you! We'll go back but bring our picnic!
Wonderful zoo. Lots to see. The animals are well cared for & looked happy & content. Visitors can stroke the animals & feed them (giraffes, zebras, lamas, goats etc). My children & I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well worth a visit.
Excellent zoo!!! It was super busy but queues were well managed and with a little patience you will get around in about 4/5 hours depending on crowds and your personal preference. There were plenty of toilets and food/drink stops and the range of animals was great. Everything appeared clean and well tended, all in all a fantastic day out and well worth the price.
