Zoos and Aquaria

The largest tropical greenhouse in France, the Serre Amazonienne is filled with spectacular plants and wildlife from the Amazon rainforest.

A mangrove swamp with piranhas and caimans swimming around its tangled roots, trees full of tropical birds and tamarind monkeys, a dense forest with a huge ceiba tree and anteaters and ocelots hiding in the foliage before moving into the mountain forests of ferns and orchids - all this and a waterfall, tropical canopy where you can observe the birds, and a grotto filled with armadillos plus a bat colony!  

There is so much to see that all the family are guaranteed to learn something new as well as having fantastic fun!
