LE BIOPARC – Doué-la-Fontaine (49)

• To Visit

A park made-to-measure for threatened animals. Over 1500 animals live in an exceptional natural setting in the only troglodyte zoo in the world ! In a true mineral and vegetal labyrinth, our tunnels dug into the rock will lead you from one environment to the next. The animals live here at their own pace in XXL spaces : take time to explore their territories, you will be rewarded. During our activities, admire their natural behavior : there is no training, long live the spectacle of nature !

The Carnivores crater
After the African aviary inhabited by multicolored birds, explore a spectacular landscape housing Africa’s iconic wildlife ! Lions, cheetahs, meerkats, otocyons and porcupines roam a vast rocky territory made of domes and crevasses.

The rhino Valley
Go and meet the big fauna of African plains. Once you have walked past the pygmy hippos, go alongside the rhino valley dug out of the rock and watch the impressive black rhinos and the gazelles. Children will be able to stroke goats and have fun meeting mongooses on an unusual gallery tour !

South-American great aviary
Walk into the heart of the largest aviary in Europe and have an unforgettable immersion with 600 birds.
Flying space for 35 different bird species, this quarry has similar South-American rocky ecosystems and dry shores where penguins, aras, ibis and other flamingos cohabit.
