    Awesome animal park! One of the best zoos we have been to. It isn’t very large (we stayed about 3 hours) but you have a lot of closeness and interaction with the animals. We could feed goats and have birds land on our arms. The ticket is a little on the pricy side (20 euros for adults) but it’s worth it. There is a restaurant inside and the parking is free. Also beware that when you go in, all exit of the zoo is definitive. The animals also seem to be well cared for which is great. The whole in a natural environment with mountains behind you is just cream on the top!

    Amazing park with a great variety of animals, some you can even see up close. Very few visitors, nice shaded areas, lots of information provided. Highly enjoyable both for adults and children. Absolutely worth the visit!

    Absolutely awesome!! We visited the park in the spring and stayed overnight. We slept with the bears and it was outstanding. Obviously, it is not a hotel so don't expect room service at 2am. We appreciated to be left on our own for this amazing experience; we were even able to wander around after closing time so we had the park and the bears for ourselves. The accommodation is very cosy, we had everything we needed. And the view on the bears enclosure is just perfect. Awesome night. We will go again and stay with the wolves next time.

    Excellent family visit with a wide range of animals, big and small. Best visited on a dry day as most of the park is outdoors. Near the end of October it was busy by midday so I would also advise...
