We visited this little hillside Zoo this week while the weather was a bit changeable. At first glance it looks a bit run-down, but it's very natural in its setting, and mainly little pathways through the trees on the steep hillside. It probably took us...More

This is a small zoo in the in the trees on the side of a hill. The path meanders past and sometimes through the enclosures. The incline may deter some but our party included a two year old sometimes in a buggy and my daughter...More

This is a sweet little zoo with many interesting and unusual animals. You can walk through the enclosures which is certainly something unique. I'll be honest though and say I got a little nervous when one of the lemurs approached my young children within only...More

I brought my then 12 year old son here 7 years ago and he had an amazing day with the free roaming lemur exhibits a highlight. I was back in Sarlat with just my wife, Toni, and we decided to go back for a second...More

I would highly recommend this little zoo. Love being able to walk in the Lemur enclosure and get up close (no touching allowed though). The Wolverines were fascinating also.

We spent an afternoon here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The lemurs and fossas were a highlight and the overall laidback feel to the place added to the experience. Staff were helpful and friendly. We were here in low season so it was peaceful and gave...More

If on holiday near by this is something worth doing if you love monkeys. The animals here have great enclosures allowing you to walk through and see them up close. We were lucky enough to get especially close to the lemurs which all the family...More

You have to really look to find the animals but that makes it all the more worthwhile. You can see that they really care for the animals, the enclosures are very good and not just cages like at some zoos. Definitely recommend. We went with...More

This is not a large zoo and we did not see some of the animals that were supposedly there. However, my children had a great time in the lemur area. We had lucky timing and the lemur pen was being cleaned, so they were all...More
