Touroparc was the first zoo I visited in Europe and I loved it.I have good memories of this zoo. I thought the animal enclosures were closer to their natural habitat compared to the concrete box enclosures that I saw in some zoos. It was spacious...More

The animals looked depressed and still do not have big enough enclosures even though some of their enclosures were expanded recently. At some points I could not look at the animals as it was so sad. I will not be visiting again and would not...More

Not the best zoo we have been to in France but good nonetheless. Plenty of animals although the lions and wolves were sensible to keep out of the withering heat. Ideal for children

I am not a fan of zoos but Touroparc does seem to care for the animals as they look in good condition, especially the male lion who looks just as you would imagine Aslan to be! They undertake conservation projects in partnership with other organisations...More

The two elephants were swaying it's trunk back and forth/walking to and fro/in circles which is a sign of stress in a captive environment. It made us sad. The zoo is interesting for a few hours but quite sad about the larger animals in small...More

This zoological garden is not too big and a bit expensive (21,90 for adults, 18,90 for kids under 12, free under 3). But my kids liked it a lot, especially the tour in train and monorail. They got to see many animals: giraffes, lions, elephants,...More

It´s good to see the animals near us. We like a lot to visit your park, it was our first trip to France and was a very good experience. WELL DONE.

For us Touroparc is a trip down memory lane. It still is a lovely small zoo, with attached a fairground and waterslide park. Old fashioned in a nice way, lovely nostalgic feel to it!
