Trip Planner: Europe / France / Ile-de-France / Yvelines / Thoiry / Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry
Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry blends a castle, zoo, and botanical garden. The castle itself was originally designed as a solar calendar, with the garden walkways as the hands. Built according to the golden ratio, the castle's design is in harmony with the solar cycles. Outside, you can explore the gardens, which have been fashioned by famous landscapers for centuries, marking the styles of their respective eras. Beech, oak, hornbeam, and chestnut trees all shade the property. The safari park, which must be visited from inside your vehicle, houses about 800 free-roaming exotic animals. Parts of the zoo and botanical gardens have been made accessible by foot. There’s a Komodo dragon exhibit and a lion exhibit, where you can walk among the felines inside a glass tunnel. The Mysterious Island offers an adventure trail on suspended bridges.

Expérience à renouveler, le zoo est plutôt bien entretenu, le safari est très sympa mon fils de 2 ans et demi a adoré voir les autruches et zèbres près de la vitre de la voiture. Les lumière sauvages ... more »Experience to renew, the zoo is rather well maintained, the safari is very nice my son of 2 and a half loved to see the ostriches and zebras near the car window. The wild light is just sublime and magical. The only negative in my opinion is the course of the zoo. Indeed, it is very poorly indicated, there are aisles everywhere, we do not know where to start. It would have been necessary to number each attraction to see and put arrows to make it consistent. There's a lot of walking and you get lost easily. Otherwise, it remains a beautiful discovery, the animals are well present and visible. I loved seeing the tigers and hyenas above our heads on the transparent tunnel.
Safari sympa, attaque des autruches sur la voiture trop drôle. Fêtes des lumières le soir très beau. Le parc animalier est très grand mais au final on marche bcp pour voir peu d'animaux. C'est vieillo... more »Safari nice, attack ostriches on the car too funny. Festivities of lights in the evening very beautiful. The animal park is very large but in the end we walk bcp to see few animals. It's old overall. My daughter is in a manual wheelchair, the aisles are not top and it takes someone to push. Clean and accessible toilets. We ate pancakes and waffles, to escape... Rubber and chocolate very bad
