Beauval Zoo


One of the best zoos in the world…and it is only a 35 minute drive away!

Classed as one of the 10 most beautiful zoological parks in the world, Beauval is home to over 600 different species and close to 10 000 animals, including two giant pandas, the only ones in France!

Beauval is renown worldwide for its work in preserving endangered species. With the number of births increasing each year (600 in 2016) Beauval is the largest zoological maternity unit in France.

Beauval continually seeks to surprise its visitors with new facilities, new shows and animals.

In 2016, the zoo inaugurated the Hippopotomus Reserve (la Réserve des Hippopotames), a unique area and building equipped with a 44 m long window offering an incredible underwater view of the hippos.

In April this year the zoo opened the Land of the Lions (la Terre des Lions). In a totally new extension of the zoo ten majestic African lions reign over their new territory.  A tunnel opens out into their kingdom allowing visitors to meet them face to face.

We advise you allow a whole day to visit the park. It is also possible to purchase 2-day tickets.
