Enjoy your visit in our zoo!

Over 1800 animals live in an exceptional natural setting in the only troglodyte zoo in the world!

In a true mineral and vegetal labyrinth, our tunnels dug into the rock will lead you from one environment to the next. The animals live here at their own pace in XXL spaces: take time to explore their territories, you will be rewarded. During our activities, admire their natural behavior: there is no training, long live the spectacle of nature!
