Visited for a day with young grandchildren. The animals are very well displayed in very large enclosures with long well hidden walkways for viewing. One of the best parks I have... read more

We were there with 15 familie members. Nooked the restaurant and had food. All was ok for the price. Nothing really fine but good food and kids were really happy. Kids happy, mums happy, husbands happy 😉. Good place to discover the region nature and animals.

What a great surprise this park was! Not certain what to expect we visited the animal park and we very much enjoyed it. It is quite different from any other zoo we have seen so far: a lot to see and do, wide setup, well taken care of, creative activities and fun for the adults as well as the 4... More

very nice park, really wild but be prepared to mosquitoes which can ruin your stay if you attract them!

I stayed in the park for a night with my family while visiting the Lorraine region of France. We had heard good things prior to the visit, but came away extremely impressed by the park. A few highlights: a) the grounds and facilities are immaculate, it’s obvious the park continuously improves upon itself (35 year old park felt brand new)... More

We stayed in the park in a clean and new cabin overlooking the expansive meadow full of caribou and different types of deer. The highlight was the bear habitat. This is a completely different type of experience from a traditional zoo where animals are confined in concrete enclosures. Here there are large lakes and acreage for freedom of movement. The...

Our family visited Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix during a two week European adventure. The park was one of the highlights of our trip. The thing that strikes me the most about the park is that the animals seemed so well cared for and actually loved! They are kept in environments that are designed to be close to what they would...

Had the best time at Parc Animalier de Sainte Croix. The parc is absolutely amazing - unlike anything I've ever seen. Nothing like a zoo - the animals have huge living spaces, as if they're in their natural habitat. My favorites were the bears and the red pandas. The parc is kept immaculately and so perfectly designed - so much... More

One of the nicest parks I ever visited. Absolutely worth to see. You need minimum 4-6h plus food and water.
