  • Visit the reserve rather well but can be a bit expensive for what it is after we saw all the animals my son liked clean park

  • After almost 3 hours of driving with young children, we arrived at the Sigean reserve. What disillusionment, what disappointment and what ennarque!!! The total prices (almost 90th) remains in my throat compared to what I saw..... or rather not "really" seen. On the car route: 1 Bear. Ok. A virtually deserted park has so much that one wonders if the animals had gone on holiday. At the foot course: Good.... nothing exceptional, it was not worth doing so many kms for goats (as the children loved!!!) Camels... Ect. In each enclosure we looked for the animals and then we would drop because they could not be seen or not very visible. We had been there before the big flood and it had MAGIC!!! Now it's to run...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Definitely worth the visit even if for many the tickets may seem a little pricey. It is well maintained and well organized. We'll definitely visit it again.
  • Wow, this came from out of nowhere! Who goes on holiday to France and expects to be wowed by an African experience? We thought that the drive around the different enclosures was special and thought that we had "done it", until we parked up and went for a walk. That's when interesting and wonderful became amazing and involving. We went a bit out of season, so had the benefit of empty car parks etc which made it even better. Well worth visiting!
