Zoo de La Palmyre reviews
A well planned one way system to keep people apart! However the queues for food were disorganised and a better selection would have been appreciated. Otherwise we enjoyed feeding the animals where.... more »
nice zoo though old fashioned cages make me feel that animals are not so well treated. many people made it too difficult to visit more »
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.
