    Tickets are a bit pricy for the size of the park but nice day out

    To be honest I would not pay 10 euros for this. We bought a four-pack including other attractions/parks, so this did not cost much, but all in all the park is barely bigger than an average petting zoo. Only a few types of animals, which are by itself nice to see. We spent less than an hour in the park.

  • "Not worth it"

    2 / 5 Reviews posted by Relax17746768026 (Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands) on 11/07/2020

    Some goats, deer, cows and 2 wolves. High price for entry and information mainly French. Unfortunately not worth it.

    The site itself is poorly signposted and is about 6 k away from Lascaux on the opposite side of the Vezere valley. I think its intent is to provide a perspective of animals and life in the valley as...
