Zoo de La Palmyre

Highly recommended
This 18ha/33-acre zoo is set within the magnificent forests and dunes of La Palmyre. A marked trail, dotted with lakes and ponds, takes visitors past some 1,600 animals from every corner of the globe. With carnivores living right next to small pandas or meerkats, and parrots and other birds of multi-coloured plumage leading the way to hoofed animals and mastodons. The polar-bear pond, which seeks to recreate an ice floe, is singularly impressive, as is the reptile vivarium. The primates are another top attraction of the zoo.
