Parc Zoologique de Frejus Reviews
Ce zoo est une honte Deja le prix 17 e l'entrée nous sommes arrivés à 10h45 nous étions seuls dans ce zoo et je comprends pourquoi.

Poorly maintained alleys of animals that turn in circles and come and go constantly (tigers) An elephant that is in a tiny enclosure In The Basins with koi carp invaded by various plants and other weeds to the point that we could not even see carp so there were just if you could see the water Parrots and other birds in cages so low ... Badly cleaned pens is a shame to see that. We are told that we have at least 2 hours and a while... after an hour we had gone around and there was still no one ... And icing on the cake the zoo is close to an area under construction. We have to shut down this zoo for the sake of all these animals.
Malgré toutes les critiques lues et entendues sur ce zoo, j'ai quand meme décidé d'y amené mon petit fils. Pour ma part, elles sont injustifiées, Les allées, les enclos et les animaux sont propres.

It is a pity that we are allowed to build an industrial zone against a part of the zoo, but that's not their fault !!!!
The zoo is a little tired looking but the animals are well looked after and there is a good variety to see. Zoos play an important part in the protection of endangered species and it is worth a visit. My 5 year old in particular enjoyed it.
The positives: - nice welcome from the lady tending the gates - our kids liked it The negatives: - way too expensive compared to what you get (EUR 17 per adult, EUR per child). The honest price point would be around EUR 5 per person - the zoo is unkept and smells bad overall - Animals do not seem to be well taken care of or not within their ideal habitat. Animals are kept behind big fences, something you do not see anymore in modern zoos (where natural barriers keep animals away from the public) - we spend 2 hours in the zoo without seeing a single person, guide or whatsoever. Bad from a safety perspective and it would be nice to have some zookeepers who explain to the various highlights of the zoo (if there were). -There was not even a single snack or drink point open. Overall, it was nice to go there with the kids but it unfortunately felt like a rip off as we spent more than EUR50 for 2 adults and 2 kids, as much as sole of the world’s best zoos.
