At Zoo de La Boissiere Du Dore, see the oldest breeding male orangutan in the world, appropriately named Major. He was brought to the zoo in 1989 with a partner, Manis. This partnership was a great success and, as of 2013, the zoo has the largest population of orangutans in Europe. In fact, it is notable for its primate collection, complete with the apes known as magots and lemurs that climb through carefully maintained jungle environments. View the primates in well-crafted enclosures that give you a sense of their original habitats.

  • We visited this zoo after a very rainy week, be advised that it's best to call before going there if you are visiting around winter time because they close parts of the park. Luckily they let us in...

  • Lovely place, great enclosures for the animals. Whole family enjoyed it.
  • An absolute corker of a zoo...so lucky to have found it! All the usual animals plus a whole group of Orangutans and brown bears! Plains of Africa was stunning too!
