Ranked 4th among the most beautiful zoos in the world, Beauval Zoo has no less than 35,000 animals, including giant pandas (the only ones in France). To make the most of your visit for 1 or 2 days, we give tips to avoid wasting time and getting tired.
Created by the all-devouring passion of a woman, Zoo Beauval is the story of a lifetime dedicated to animals and their protection… In 1980, a small bird park saw the light of God. Then, white tigers, tropical greenhouses, African savannah, manatees and gorillas, koalas and okapis have come over the years to increase Beauval. Follow your dream Francoise Delors built one of the most beautiful zoos a world of hundreds of species in innovative and modern spaces.
40 years later Zoo Beauval presents 4 greenhouses with birds, apes, sloths, reptiles and Australian animals, as well as 3 plains where you can see: herbivores from african savannah (giraffes, white rhinos, wildebeest, antelopes), African elephants and Asian herbivores (Indian rhinos, Malaysian tapir, antelope…).
in Zoo Beauval was often the first to represent certain rare animals in France. Today, this still applies to animals such as the okapi, manatees, or the Indian rhinoceros. This is the only zoo in France with giant pandas. koalas, Goodfellow’s dendrologist and Tasmanian devils.
C o 900 births a year, Beauval is the largest maternity hospital in France! In any case, this is a real winter for the conservation of endangered species. Among the exciting births is the appearance of panda twins. Juanlili and Yuandudu in August 2021 made a splash. You can watch them every day from 9 am to 6 pm, have fun and splash around.
In short, with so many animals, animations, and so many places, you wonder how optimize your visit to the park ? We give you some tricks to make the most of your holiday. The Zoo de Beauval recommends visiting it two days in advance, for more peace of mind, it is a good option, but it is possible to do it in one day if you are well organised.
To begin with, you must know that the park opens at 9 am.. We recommend arriving 30 minutes before opening. After all, even before the opening of the Zoo, there is a queue at the entrance to the park. Obviously, in order not to waste time on the counter, it is necessary tobuy tickets in advance not to wait at the checkout.
As with all great parks, visitors tend to visit the park from start to finish rather than doing everything at the end. To save time and avoid rush, we recommend take the tour upside down and direct access to park backgroundthere aren’t many people there yet. Obviously the hardest part is going in front of the fence without stopping every 5 seconds before hitting the bottom.
Therefore, we decided to start our visit with giant pandas, a great attraction of the park, which was then in danger of being taken by storm. To help us, the park provides statement which we highly recommend you download before visiting. This allows you to select the animals you absolutely want to see and create an itinerary if you wish. With geolocation and a map, it also allows you to find yourself and trace your path. On the other hand, by activating notifications, he can also warn when entertainment and shows you want to see it start, so you move around so you don’t miss them.
After our visit to the Kingdom of pandas, rhinos, elephants and other wolves, we decided to take a gondola from this area to thatUluwatu where do we find equatorial dome. This was followed by a visit to the dome, where manatees, Komodo dragons, giant tortoises and other monkeys were waiting for us before heading out to look for lions, meerkats and other hippos.
The hour is coming have lunch. It should be noted that picnic The entrance to the park is not allowed, so you will have to leave the zoo to have lunch at one of the two available places, which can be a waste of time. There are at least 15 different points for lunch and dinner in the park. We advise you to eat early enough, for example at 11:30 am, even at 11:00 am at open places, or after 2:00 pm, to avoid the crowds that gather at lunchtime. Some hidden restaurants like Estoqua, Roseraie or Seregenti have fewer lines than others, so making the right choice depending on where you are can save you over an hour.
Thanks to the notifications, we were able to continue the show.Sea Lion Odysseyin other words, sea lions accompanied by a fabulous spectacle Air Masters allowing you to see an incredible aerial ballet. In the heart of the big green theater, over 600 birds fly over your heads on a 3,000-seat half-cycle. Owls, cranes, pelicans, storks and company team up for a show breathtaking.
Once our shows were over, we quietly ended up visiting the Around the World Zone to discover tigers, monkeys, flamingos and company before reaching the car park via this path.
And here is a good busy day without wasting time. So don’t forget organize and make the right choice before your visit. note that Zoo Beauval open every day holiday understandable, so enjoy.
