Really loved the Parc - the animals were great and we got to have a scenic hike around the ‘panoramic’ trail. Definitely worth a visit, the staff were very friendly and there was lots of see (loved the ostriches!) however we were disappointed that the...More

This park was well set up and the keepers friendly and informative. I watched the Caledonian crows retrieve their food from old logs where there food was pushed. They don't hang about and it was all very interesting. Also some Cagau the national emblem. Was...More

Fantastic fun. Booked Segway tour online which included zoo entry & personal guide. Need to pay in local currency as online booking is only a holding reservation against credit card. Ponchos provided if raining- tours go ahead regardless. Caught taxi to zoo which is good...More
