    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.

    Small interesting place if you arrive on time for daily events and activities. Otherwise better spend your money on a proper zoo.

  • "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.

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by Arr-Jimlad (Sydney, Australia) on 11/07/2019

    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...
