  • A beautiful décor (old limestone mine), superb aviaries (including the largest in Europe) and a friendly welcome! The park's walkways are very nice and shady. We feel animal welfare through the many births. A beautiful destination for a weekend! You can take advantage of the weekend to visit Saumur or the cave dwellings...

  • Really lovely idea, a safari park set in an old quarry. The animal enclosures are very spacious, and the variety of animals is excellent, and the quarry itself has some stunning features to see. Lots of cool tunnels to enjoy walking through on hot days, and an incredible underground river. Get there early or you'll never get round it all!!
  • A Really Fabulous Zoo! It's superbly designed with lovely, natural enclosures to enable us to see the animals at their best. I loved that there were so many platforms from which to view. Every animal looked so well cared for and the South American bird enclosure was truly fantastic. We spent ages here and were so impressed with how the birds had so much room to roam and seemed content. We had a fabulous day out to be remembered and this is a great example of a well thought out sanctuary. We definitely recommend this zoo.
