Make your own way to the ZooParc de Beauval in Saint-Aignan to begin your animal encounter. With full-day access, the day is yours to spend as you please, so take the time to explore the 30-hectare (74-acre) park in your own time.

Spot giraffes, white rhinos, zebras and wildebeest in the African Savannah habitat; marvel at gorillas, chimpanzee and orangutan; then peek underwater to admire baby manatees, river turtles, crocodiles and colorful Amazonian fish. Next, brave a look at the big cats, which include lions, tigers, jaguars and rare snow leopards, before visiting the Australian exhibit, home to adorable tree-kangaroos, koalas and kookaburras.

Among the star attractions are the pair of Giant Pandas, named Huan Huan and Yuan Zi, who arrived in 2012 and the baby panda Yuan Meng, born in August 2017 in the zoo. The pandas family remains the only giant pandas in France. Observe the hippopotamus enclosure, featuring a lagoon, waterfalls and an underwater viewing area.

Don’t forget to check out the zoo’s shows, which are held daily from March to September and include 'Les Maîtres des Airs', a spectacular bird show, and 'L’Odyssée des lions de mer', an entertaining sea lion demonstration.

Don’t miss the bird display!

This was our second visit, having visited 8 years ago. The zoo has made some great improvements with the enclosures, and redevelopment is ongoing. This is definitely a whole day attraction as the zoo covers a large area with some steep pathways. The highlights were...More

Fantastic zoo

My word. What a zoo! But it's huge and it may well be worth doing it over two days. I read some of the reviews here about overcrowding and big lines... we went in June and even then there were queues for (pretty rubbish) food....More

Give this the whole day as it is a big zoo with a lot to see. They have so many 'big ticket' animals but my favorites were the giant and red pandas and the orangutans. Plenty of nice clean facilities. I got a few euros...More
