  • The good: - The view is spectacular as you can see the Mont Blanc massif right before you with nothing blocking the view in a few locations. - The animals are supposed to be moving around freely...

  • My family and I visited this afternoon and absolutely loved it! The animals were very relaxed around humans and they were everywhere. Also, the staff was friendly, the grounds were lovely and there are incredible views of the mountains across the valley.
  • Fantastic animal park with a spectacular view which might be the main attraction, but the park in its natural state is great too! At high temperatures, most of the animals are seeking the shade - but if you take your time, you're still able to spot a few of them! Throughout the park, there are many photo spots and benches. I highly recommend to use them and enjoy the nature! All in all, the amount of space the animals have is commendable, the staff is very friendly and the Massif du Mont-Blanc is nothing less than a natural spectacle! But please note: The walk to the park is indeed relatively far and steep!
