Bioparc, Doué-la-Fontaine Zoo

  • Duration: 4 hour

The Bioparc is internationally recognized for its commitment to safeguarding endangered species, with its “Nature Projects” carried out around the world.

About us

Located in a vast network of former falun quarries and tunnels, the Bioparc is the only troglodyte zoo in the world!
On 17 ha this extraordinary place offers you a strong immersion with the 1700 animals that live there in XXL spaces: take the time to explore their territories, you will be rewarded.
During the animations, admire their natural behavior: here no dressage, long live the spectacle of nature!

The Bioparc restaurant, open to the quarry of giraffes and zebras, offers a lunch made up of local and/or organic products, in an African atmosphere.

The visit ends with the shop which, keen to offer eco-citizen purchases to visitors, develops solidarity partnerships with craftsmen from all over the world.
