  1. This operation looks more like a small zoo as an educational farm… The entrance fee is not justified, It is disproportionate to the benefit.

  2. We wanted to visit the farm to the corroborated with the kangaroos the 12 August 2014 in Saint-NECTAIRE. Our friend Christophe, reaches of the brain tumor, fatigue quickly and could not therefore not make the visit but he wanted to accompany his children ; also before paying the entry (We were 8 without Christophe) We asked permission to sit waiting on one of the chairs from the small terrace accessible immediately after the start of the visit. We were extremely surprised and disappointed to receive an emphatic ,Despite our explanations and the fact that we pay the entry (Apart from Christophe).
    We are therefore left with a heavy heart, without visiting the site, in attempting to explain to the disappointed children why we did reverse…..
    A beautiful memory of holidays certainly, Thank you for so much inhumanity and misunderstanding.

    • You have is me too I'd be part. I was planning to go there at the time I would hesitate to go there.
      I think that before the business it is necessary to keep or regain his own humanity.


  3. Park human-sized and at this time of the year or calm returns it's very nice. Can take full advantage of everything. Improvements seem to be regularly which is not negligible for the sake of animals and the beauty of the Park.

  4. We went with the family in August in this park. We found the trainers comments very interesting and especially rewarding on all these animals. The people working there are really friendly and available. The kids loved it and the great also.
